Nice that someone has finally done the effort for cleaning the lines and putting the crag here. Quite highball problems on the main wall and some nice overhangs! Crag is close to the center of Helsinki and easily accessed by public transport. Good substitute for Taivaskallio!

Old crag that climbers have visited for decades. For some reason it has stayed under the radar. However, it is a nice addition to Helsinki city crags and it has some nice routes. Unfortunately the "canyon" sectors gates have been welded shut during early 2015 and some graffiti "art" has been painted in the canyons during last two years. Fortunately routes are higher than paintings, but would be nice if no new paintings will be added. Enjoy! EDIT: have to comment on Access Sensitive -thing: C´mon! You don´t need to restrict your climbing if you can´t come to a citycrag with a car that you can´t park within ten meters from wall!! By the road there are a lot of parking space. And first of all, like stated at the end you can easily come here without a car. This crag is within a city area where all the climbers from capital area can come by bike, bus, kutsuplus or even by walking! I added a couple of pictures to open your mind for "new" alternatives. I can´t fit those pads in normal car, but I can easily transport those by bike. Happy climbing. :)

Small city crag. Nothing so special.

The area is access sensitive!

The parking space is limited and reserved for the school and the kindergarten on weekdays during daytime. It's therefore advisable to schedule climbing for weekends or after 17:30 on weekdays or to come without car.
