Description

Among the many other crags at Tyresö Dödskalleberget is the most magnificent, eye-catching and tempting crag with its big flat face and warm yellow color. The wonderfull and cam location next to the sea makes this crag a perfect destination for weekends. The evening sun is glorious.
From the top you have an amazing view over the arcipelago and at the far left base of the crag it is wonderful to hang out with a cup of coffee and let yourself be warmed up by the sun in springtime.
This crag offers technical face climbing on solid, beautiful and compact granite walls, among many considered as the best in its style in Stockholm.

The main attraction is the slightly overhanging compact section on the right side of the Main Wall, which offers sustained delicat and technical face climbing on good crimps. The best gradespan are betwen 7b-8A altough there are two or three nice 6Cs as well. The moves are quite often a bit bouldery and strong fingers in combination with well-developed footwork is essential.

There are a few bolted routes in the lower grades (5a-6b) on the main wall as well but these are slaby, very compact and with many negative holds which makes a good foot technic even more important. The bolts can be a bit spread as well and if you are climbing near your limit it could make you nervous when climbing on these slabs.

On the left side of the Right Wall there are some old bolted sport routes that are quite mossy (probably doable but really not recomendable until renovated). Further to the right there are a couple of slaby mixed/trad routes that are really fun if you can handle the sometimes sparse protection and the slaby moves. Very solid rock here, but bring a brush.

The Main Wall is south west facing and open for the sun. Gets very hot in summer. The sun strikes Main Wall at around twelve o'clock, but the climbs far to the left (where Mio are) catches the sun earlier. On calm days this is a popular crag in spring and autumn. Most of the routes dries quick after rain but there can be some dripping on some routes (typical Diana, in spring).

History

Apart from some chimneys made in the late 70s and one or two traditional climbs made along the most obvious formations in the early 80s, nothing came up until John Luhr found the trigger on his lovely Hilti in the early 90s, then it was fully clear what this crag had to offer.

Dödskalleberget

The area is access sensitive!

Road directions:
From road 229 follow Breviksvägen 7 km out on Tyresö peninsula. Turn right onto Öringhamnsvägen (signposted Dyvik). Follow this 1.5 km and turn right downhill Dyviksuddsvägen. Below the hill on the right side lies the small lake and the crag. A parking space is available after the next curve, at Dyviksuddsklippan. Parking will be full quickly, park tightly. Then walk back on the same road you came and walk halfway up the hill. Turn left onto a path at a small electrical cabinet on the left side of the road. Follow the path down and away to the right, about 150 m.

Under no circumstances should you park in meeting places, private parking, or along the way! If the parking is full then you can use the same parking as for Uddeuddberget. There is also an alternative parking at Sandholmarna nature reserve (marked on the map).

Public transportation:
Bus to Ällmora or Mossvägen and then about 30 to 45 min walk. The bus to Ällmora runs seasonally. Buses to Mossvägen run regularly.
