In the nature reserve Notteryd north-east of the city centre, there are 3 perfect areas for bouldering.

In the nature reserve Notteryd, just north-east of the centre, there are three areas with many nice bouldering problems. By the hill fort and the cliffs you can find both easily-climbed rocks as well as more difficult problems on sloping flat rocks. Besides 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, on which you would land softly if you fall. To minimize the risk of getting hurt, climb together with a friend, ready to catch you if you fall. A particular path to the top of the boulder is called a "problem", and they come in various degrees of difficulty. You can use climbing shoes and chalk, but untender shoes are good enough. There is no age-limit for bouldering. Fresh air, strength, flexibility and problem-solving ability is what you get from doing it.
