Join boulderers Dylan Smith and Carl-Ola Bostrom on a tour of Sweden's best blocs. Swedish Meatballs features classic lines and first ascents as Dylan and Carl-Ola spend a month on the road meeting up with the boulderers and climbers who shaped the Swedish scene.
Growing up in Wales, Dylan Smith soon tired of sheep and slate and found a different kind of love in Sweden. These days he spends his days playing with plastic and crimping on sharp overhanging granite. Kjugekull veteran Carl-Ola Bostrom put his life as a student on hold to see if there was anything else worth climbing in Sweden... and he found it, the 'Perfect Boulder'. Now, his unique zen mentality and unquenchable thirst for the attainable has him searching for the 'Next Perfect Boulder.'
'So what’s it all about? This is the archetypal road trip movie, so expect plenty of areas and quality looking problems of all grades, with the classic lines being sent here there and everywhere, whether it be by the well dialed locals or a series of drafted in wads, including traveling Welshman Dylan Smith and Swedish cherry picker Carl-Ola Boström. There is a varied grade range of problems though most lines featured are in the mid 7 to low 8 Font Grades. From the major classics, first ascents and highball lines this production is also interspaced with the usual banter-filled “on route” footage shot between locations ... definitely worth a watch.'
