Ängesbyn is a nice bouldering area close to Luleå. It reminds me of Åland and Mosjön, superb lines on huge blocks. Even if you don't like bouldering, it´s hard not to like this place. The best problems are in the 7a-8a range but there are also some easier lines for fatties.

The best introduction to the area is probably Jani Lehtola´s video

One of the many blocks

 Mind set to motion 7C(+/-)

 A nice highball-crack

Build to last 7C. I guess the name refers to landing, which surprisingly was done by Finns! This was one of the best boulders I've ever climbed.

The new fragrance fuck OFF 7B and the new landing. This landing wasn't very popular among the first ascensionists as it blocks the first two moves.

Sitstart or not, this is a must-do problem!

 The last move, a dyno to the top-jug, is the crux

  I got tired and decided to put up some easier lines. This red wall is a nice warm up, maybe 6a.

 Another warm up, maybe 6a as well

 Anu did this wide crack. With some eliminations you can get good training for off-widths.

 Bollen 6b, a short but surprisingly nice boulder. This is located on the left side of Oblivion 7c+

 Mats asked if the trees were on the way... not really, except for the photos

Oblivion 7C+. Linus did it in a short session, very nice!

We also climbed on Brändön. For those who are wondering if it's worth visiting...well, not really.
