Welcome to Bohuslän and Bohusläns Climbing Club!

It is not only the old stonemasons who love the famous red granite of Bohuslän. Known for its clean crack climbs and the beautiful scenery in this coastal region, climbers have been travelling to this area for over forty years. Bohuslän is one of the most well-known climbing areas in Scandinavia and, despite its popularity, still has a pristine and adventurous feeling to it!

Bohusläns Klätterklubb (BKK) is a climbing club based in Brodalen in Lysekil’s municipality. We have 400+ members and are committed to maintain and develop the climbing in Bohuslän. 

Access

We are happy that the climbing in Bohuslän is so popular but is has also made access to the crags a hot topic. Most crags have private land owners and as the number of climbers increase,  our future climbing is dependant on how we behave at and around the crags.

Before going to a crag it is important that you check out the current access information of the specific crag. This link takes you to The Swedish Climbing Federation’s common site for Access information where this can be found. Scroll down to the search function (”Sök klätterområde”), key in the crag, check out the information and make sure you follow the instructions.  At some crags there are signs giving local information about the approach, parking, road access payment, etc..

Please always keep a low profile, park according to the instructions and don’t leave anything behind (including toilet matters!)

Also make sure you know the right and wrongs of the Swedish right of public access:

Accomodation
