Right now, the boulders around Västervik are covered by a couple of feet of snow, but in September this year things looked very different. The city of Västervik had invited a bunch of strong international boulderers for the second annual Västervik Boulder Meet.

This time they had also invited film maker Cameron Maier, aka Bearcam, to make a film about it.

Next year, there will be a new boulder meet, so if you like what you see, check out their website.

There're so many Art of Flight references in this film. Looks great!

hadn't someone already said that on this thread and then it dissappeared?! Or is there another Västervik thread in which the blow torching came up? I'm sure it's not a brilliant idea, although I suspect if Swedish granite is much like Finnish granite, it might not be such a terrible thing.

Im not sure if its been said before. im not to fussed what rock its on, it sets a bad example for people who dont know better. If its local practice thats fine but dont put it in a video.

You've posted a video of somebody blowtorching a boulder problem to dry it out! Are you serious? UKC should pull this video. Ridiculous.
