Nearby attraction

Checked out a nearby tourist attraction from where I live (here in Stugun, Jämtland County) today in good company. I have a rather impressive mountain rising very close my property (I practically live on a spot close to this peak) but I have still to explore this general area way more. Takes about 10-12 minutes to get up there through the forest (no road) upwards the mountain side. With the new snow making certain steep bits a bit slippery I decided to stop at this position and not risk the last climb that is a bit on the heavy side. Anyway, I have heard that enthusiasts climb these rocks in this area and they have made it a good place to visit. There are nine different locations to climb according to tourist informatioon, so this is just one such place. I have to say that this nearby part of the mountain looks great, nature has carved out a section of the wall about half way up and you have a few trees growing there. Amazing how trees can find a way to grow just about anywhere.

I could hear voices in the vicinity so somebody was up there. I think the right thing to do is to get a map so that I can get a real grip of this mountain. It was interesting to get a first glimpse, had I been a kid I would have explored this mountain every day (at least that is how it was when I grew up). These days I will settle for a nice walk or two that will not be too dangerous.
