Cave Exploration at Klövberget, Tyreso

Group photo inside the cave
Klövberget is on the Tyresö's southwest side and have about 1 km long mountain side which largely goes straight down into the calf Bay. Some of Stockholm's most classic trad lines are located in Klövberget. This cave in Klövberget looked more like a demolished mountain. Long ago, a part of this huge mountain had crashed inside (imploded) and this resulted into a 300 m long cave.

I happened to stumble upon the map of this location. Klövberget is labeled first in the legends area. I was helped by Joakim Ambrossan, who knew every inch of this cave. Thanks to him, I was able to lead a group of 10 people inside, all by myself.

Leading the way inside the cave!
Bay area
The northern part which partially goes down into the bay, partly on solid ground is about 300 m long and 10-30 m high. Some overhangs can be easily spotted here. Some part of the rock is quite loose and vegetated and yet there are only a couple of joints made on this part of the mountain. On the part of the mountain that have solid ground under them, is the rock having strong foundation and most of the loose rock have been removed. On those routes where there are still loose material indicated included in the description.

Excellent view covering the bay
Some of the famous crags ( for rock-climbing)
