Picture flashback: ”Dr Snuggles” 8b

Stefan climbing one of the hardest routes in Bohuslän on natural protection, ”Dr Snuggles” 8b. The big black wall of Häller looks intimidating as it is, making the route even more special. I’ve tried it on toprope just for the hell of it and to better appreciate Stefans ascent, the moves are hard, sensitive and very stretched out for a shorter climber. It requires good friction and a brave state of mind since the last protection before the crux leaves you climbing through it with a proper runout, making the fall slightly terrifying..! A great piece of art, first ascent by Erik Heyman.

The start of ”Dr Snuggles” gives you a small warning of whats to come; slippery holds and technical, hard moves.
