A few shots from a beautiful afternoon last week spent bouldering at Källbergahygget outside Uppsala. We have been blessed with amazing weather in the last two weeks and after a long dark winter, every second spent in the sun recharges you with energy. One can only wish for not having the face another raincloud until the autumn...

As I did not post all the photos I took at the La Sporiva legends only in November, I though I could use them in this time of having nothing better to share. A desperate try to fill out the void that is the issue of not having climbed much in the past months.
Yet another year goes by. A year that I'd quite like to be erased from the history of time. So much happened, that I could never have predicted. Things that still is affecting me and forever will. Of course it's not been all bad. The time in Turkey was very stimulating. Not only in terms of climbing, but more than that on a personal level. The day I stepped on the flight back home, I felt more in peace than I think I've been in years. But still, I would trade every good experience if some things would never have happened.
Normally, this annual summary turns in to something of a long winded
story. But as I have not travelled, or even climbed as much as in the
last couple of years, I don't feel I can put much more to words then the
lines above. So to save my self from even having to try, I will fall
back on the frequently used expression, that a picture says more than a

For a couple of days more, I will be hanging out with my family back home. After that, I'm really looking forward to going back to Stockholm. I think, for the first time ever, I found an everyday life that I could acctually see my self being happy with for more than a couple of months. I'll see what 2015 has got to offer, but for now I feel Stockholm is the place for me to be.
