Goddarsbölebeget cave


Still in quarantine! So, I'm hiking in a forgotten forest in Kirkkonummi. And found two caves that aren't listed in any of the cave books. One roof cave, visited by climbers for the overhang. But the other one I liked a lot. It is small, but much cave-like, dark, and with a very tight entrance :-)

The coordinates for the roof cave and bouldering place are N 60.19197 E 24.52438.

The coordinates for the small dark cave are N 60.19131 E 24.52927. This cave is maybe 1.5-2m long and 0.7m wide, tall enough to stand almost straight. There's a very tight entrance (at least for me), so you have to squeeze yourself in and out.

I also found a triangle hole (coordinates N 60.18924 E 24.52545) and two cliffs with a bit of overhang/roof (coordinates N 60.18994 E 24.52469 and N 60.19057 E 24.52497) but those were not big enough to classify as caves.

Everest as seen from China. Wikipdia photo. While Mt. Everest might be closed to foreigners, a single Chinese commercial climbing expedition has been on the mountain for the past few weeks acclimatizing and waiting for a weather window to make a summit push. If they succeed, it would likely make them the only humans to stand on the planet’s high point this year. There has been little Everest news as of late, minus that involving 5G towers, but according to the Adventure Blog, the Chinese

Chinese Everest Teams Are On Their Way To Summit

Two Chinese teams on Everest launched their summit bids earlier this week. Pixabay photo. After Nepal and China completely blocked foreign access to Mt. Everest for this climbing season during the COVID-19 pandemic, two Chinese teams were allowed on the mountain. One team is a commercial expedition, while the other is a group of researchers who are there to make the most accurate survey the mountain yet while there is no traffic on the peak. With bad weather keeping teams in Base Camp for
