BK CUP 17.5. AT HERTTONIEMI

So on the 17th of May: BANG BANG it’s BK CUP time!! See you there at Herttoniemi around 18.00! If you have the stamina, you can climb until midnight but perhaps a few hours of climbing will do and then some sauna? Sauna is on until the gym closes at 21.00. Take your swimming suit, it’s a unisex sauna this time.

Want to learn more about the BK CUP? Here’s the link. Everyone’s welcome to climb and sauna!

PRODUCT OF THE MONTH: CAPS - ON NICE SPRING SALE!

We declare the cap season officially started! At BK, you can find the most climbing-credible, comfortable and certainly the most handsome sun protecting caps of all times. Some in the selection are now 15% OFF! The selection varies from store to store, but you can see all the options in the webshop. Have fun shopping!

Newsletter series: Climbing etiquette

There are many "unwritten rules" in climbing, and there are many types of climbers in the gyms. In order to make climbing as comfortable as possible for everyone, we decided to start a column in the newsletter where we go through (especially Boulderkeskus') climbing etiquette - of course, many instructions apply anywhere!

Climbing outdoors

When climbing outside, it is especially important to take care of the common rules of the game, so that we can continue climbing in the opened places in the future as well and no additional damage is caused to nature by climbers.

You can find the most up-to-date access information on the 27crags topo app and SKIL's access pages: website and Facebook. Please read these before the outdoor climbing session! In addition, you can check out the fun and comprehensive videos about outdoor climbing etiquette on SKIL's website. Below, however, are the most important rules to keep in mind:

1. Park your car so that it does not block the way of the landowner, rescue vehicles or tractors etc.

2. Use ready-made paths so that the forest floor is worn as little as possible. Do not walk through fields or yards.

3. Follow everyman's rights: don't noise pollute, litter or make a fire during a wildfire warning. Also brush off tick marks and extra chalk as you leave. Climbing is everyman's right, but moss removal is not. Note! Limited everyman’s rights apply in Åland: you need e.g. a permit for camping and open fires are completely prohibited.

4. If you want to open routes, you need permission from the landowner! You can find more detailed instructions here.

5. Consider other climbers and nature users and be kind to the landowner as well!


Enjoy your time outdoors! If you need help with starting climbing outside, check out our outdoor bouldering course - we’ll have some coming up soon! Stay tuned for our social media (@boulderkeskus on Instagram and Facebook) and our website.
