The essence of bouldering at Utby in Sweden
Stella Plantin and Hanne Riise on the boulder problem Sockerbiten at Utby in Sweden.
This problem isn't famous and, in truth, nor are the girls climbing it, but this video made us smile nevertheless. Perhaps because it transpires the essence of bouldering: climbing with friends, giving it your best, regardless of conditions... in short, simply having fun.
For those who want to know a bit more: the two climbers, Stella Plantin and Hanne Riise, started climbing only fairly recently and they tackle Sockerbiten - a lump of sugar - a 7A boulder problem at Utby, just 10 minutes from the centre of Gothenburg in Sweden.
