About the guidebook
This guidebook covers the biggest and best bouldering areas in the regions of Helgeland and Salten in Northern Norway just south of Lofoten. Some of these areas have been covered earlier in the guidebook “Arctic Circle Climbing” by Sveinung B. Råheim and Sten Stenkjær from 2006. During the 13 years since the old guidebook was published the areas have seen much development and several new areas have been opened. So here comes a thorough, updated guidebook.
The project of documenting og producing the book is done by Rasmus Bølling – a Danish climber who moved to Bodø, Norway in 2016. He has been an active boulderer for more than 13 years and has in the process of making the book added many first ascents in the region.
The goal has been to make an easily read book with pictures of all the boulders and clear and precise maps for easy navigation. The book is written in English to reach out to a wide audience of both norwegian and foreign climbers travelling in Northern Norway.
