The Elegia boulder is a beautiful block in a great environment by the sea.
Just next to the block, you can access the water, so if you fancy, you can go for a swim.

Käärmekivi and Messikämmen add a few very good 6th grade routes to the crag.
The routes at Messikämmen are excellent for their grades. Käärmekivi is pretty sharp, but home to some nice climbing in the 6th grade.

There is some more potential in the area for low-ish problems. You'll find both walls and loose boulders worth cleaning. Stay away from the good looking stuff on the East side of the forest though, as it is too close to the houses on Merikapteenintie.
