Routes on Ruoppivaara

1 sport 12 trad

We like Ruoppivaara

28 routes, mostly trad, grades 3-6. Most first ascents by Leo Määttälä 1983-85.
Some toproping routes with really dangerous loose stones.
We visited on 22.6.2013. There was a hawk nesting around Superlaatta sector so we could not climb there. Otherwise it seems to be the most interesting sector. Routes are dirty, flaking/crumbling and hard to spot. Still there is some interesting climbing. As for the access, all sectors can be fairly easily accessed from the NE parking (although some scrambling required). From the parking continue along the direction of the road and right. On the left there is a private stairway that goes to a cabin.
