|One of the crags in the backyard - no more climbing walls at home!
Even if these regulations are not optimal for my personal life or business, it is my outmost responsibility to respect the rules, pitch in to lower the figures, and forego with good example. I choose not to do any extreme sports, because despite any precautions some minor injury may occur - and I don't want to cause further burden for the healthcare.
So what did I do during the Easter? I got into my own back yard, to the forest behind the house, and to the cliffs beyond - and got a customized adventure that did not require any travelling. Beautiful Western Sweden is strewn with rocks and cliffs, and while some are perfect for bouldering, others offer great climbing.

Will definitely do this again, hopefully soon! Otherwise, I spend these days improving and constructing on the farm, being on emergency call for the local firefighting department, and supporting the municipality with project leading skills. Also, since a couple of weeks ago I'm a member of the county's crisis organisation, so it feels good to have the possibility to pitch in. I've earlier written about all different ways to make a difference, now is the time to give back to the society and help where help is needed.
Note: Some climbing places are closed because of the pandemic, others are open but please do stick to social distancing and do not push any limits, so you don't risk climbing injuries. Also, instead of using powdered chalk/magnesium please use the liquid kind! It has a high alcohol content, from 30 to 80%, so it helps to sanitize while you enjoy the climbing.
