Crag features

The road cut at the south end of Helsinki-Vantaa Airport runway. There are three bays the western (nearest the bridge); centre, and Eastern (furthest from the bridge). The ice can form differently in different seasons. Watch out for loose rocks at the top if there is limited snow.

Approach notes

It may well be illegal to climb here and counter-terrorist police might shoot you. Alternatively they may just come and watch and ask friendly if inane, typical non-climber questions. So far only the latter has occurred but don't blame me if the former happens to you.
