    As a climber living in Sweden, I feel the need to explain some stuff that has been lost in translation or interpretation. - The climbing crag in question is a small cliff outside of Stockholm. It has an official name (Gaaseborg). - There are absolutely no plaques or other marks that show the names of the different routes at the crag. - There is no official recognition of these names. Only the climbers know about the route names. - It is an international climbing tradition that the first person to climb a route gets to name it and suggest a grade for its difficulty. Only the first ascender has the “right” to change the name. - The climbers that first climbed the routes some 15 years ago gave them “ww2-related names”. That is, in my opinion, extremely childish and stupid, but none the less, within their right. - Internationally, the naming of climbing routes follows the same pattern. A lot of childish, stupid, tourettes syndrome brain-fart types of names. I think this is what’s referred to as “internal jokes” in the international climbing community. - There are absolutely no Nazis or anti-semites in the climbing community in Stockholm! Here’s a link to an English article. http://climbing.about.com/b/2010/08/14/swedish-climbing-federation-proposes-ban-on-offensive-route-names.htm Cheers! /Martin
