I'm moving to Sweden in a month or two (travel rules permitting) and wondering if there is anyone on here who is based in Sweden or who has contacts or advice to find partners. 

I will be mobile, but I think I wil base myself near the climbing just north of Gothenburg for the Autumn. 

Would be great to have a few people to go climbing with

I have only recently moved to Sweden, so hopefully someone else will come along with better advice, but maybe helpful as a starting point:

- 27crags.com is useful for finding crags. You can also see who the moderator is for each crag, often a local climbing club. They might be worth getting in touch with.

- Bergsport.se is the Swedish BMC (I think). They also have a list of affiliated clubs here: https://bergsport.se/klatterforbundet/om-klatterforbundet/klubbar/

- Plenty of climbing-specific and general outdoors activities groups on Facebook. Worth using both English and Swedish search terms.

- Some have recommended Meetup (tends to have more of an international expat/migrant membership), although there aren't any climbing groups on it in my area

Enjoy, Bohuslän (an hour north of Gbg) is superb if you're into single-pitch granite jamming! I've replied to a couple of threads in the past with some useful info - see the links below:

In particular, 'Klättertorpets guide till Bohuslän' Facebook page is very active and welcoming to non-Swedish speakers, so you should be able to get going with that. 

I'm no longer in Sweden but lived there for a couple of years so have some idea of the scene - if you have any questions, feel free to email me.

I hope to be in Bohuslan in August and maybe into Sept.

I would also consider climbing near Gothenberg
