There are three areas in Notteryd, perfect for bouldering
In the nature reserve Notteryd, just north-east of the center, there are three areas with many nice bouldering problems. By the hill fort and the cliffs you can find both easily-climbed rocks to more difficult problems on sloping flat rocks. Apart from the bouldering, there is a fantastic view over the lake Toftasjön.
If you are looking for an activity that is free, makes the family work out and is fun, then bouldering might be what you are looking for. Bouldering is climbing on boulders or small rock walls. You never climb high enough to need a safety harness or a rope. Instead, you use crash pads, a mattress, which makes you land softly if you fall. To minimize the risk, climb with a friend who can stand on the ground, ready to catch you if you fall. A particular path to the top of the boulder is called a problem, and they come in different degrees of difficulty. You can use climbing shoes and chalk, but untender shoes is good enough. There is no age-limit for bouldering. Fresh air, strength, flexibility and problem-solving ability is what you get from doing it.
