We like Olhava

Valioluokan maisemat! Pääasiassa trädiä, mutta yläköysiä saa viritettyä monille reiteille.
The home of many classic trad routes. Beautiful scenery and camping below the crag. Rather long approach from the parking place. Arguably the best climbing in Finland
Entirely at own level in Finland. Especially for trad climbing. Beautiful well equipped camp site right next to cliff and fun climbing society at least during weekends. Repovesi National Park is great place also for other outdoor activities as hiking, paddling and cross country running.

Activities on this crag


The area is access sensitive!

Olhavanvuori is situated in the Repovesi National Park. Finnish Climbing Association has good co-operation with the park admistration and we like to keep it that way. Please act politely! Take your trash and all other trash with you!

The walk-in is shortest from the north parking. It takes about 30 minutes on good roads. There's a well near the climbing site where you get water for cooking. Sometimes the bacteria can be too high for drinking, though. If the trash bins on park entrances are full or locked take your trash with you back to civilization.

During spring and summer many birds nest in Olhava.

- Raven (korppi, Corvus corax) is known to nest between routes Puntari and Sammalränni. If you see a raven nesting here or somewhere else, please climb other routes.

- Kaakkuri (Gavia stellata) is known to have a nest in the middle of the Olhavanlampi pond on her own small little island. If you're a bad sleeper, please use earplugs. Kaakkuri is sometimes giving loud sounds during the morning hours and she has every right to do so! This is her territory.

There's a climbers boat courtesy of Finnish Climbing Association. You may use it as long as you don't break it. If you need to climb beyond sector Laatta (ie. Stradarotta or Tulenarkaa sectors), please walk the path from above. On good summer days the boat has high demand for pendeling between the shore and the Laatta island.
