"On Sweden's west coast, in the northern part of the county of Bohuslän, lies Europe's best kept climbing secret. The area is scattered with granite cliffs offering world class trad climbing. Soaring cracks, square cut dihedrals, knife sharp arêtes and seemingly blank faces, you'll find anything you could ever ask for. The climbing in Bohuslän also holds a rich history, with an interesting and passionate core of local activists. Crackoholic tells the full story about this climber's paradise and portrays these granite afficionados, these Crackoholics. We meet the climbers who have set their mark on the Bohuslän granite throughout the years. From the early days of EBs, white pants and bandanas in the mid-70's, to today's athletes who are pushing the standards of trad climbing. What is it that these climbers search for on the granite faces of Bohuslän? What is it that these climbers search for on the granite faces of Bohuslän? Why is naturally protected climbing so important to these individuals? And why do some of them seek out what most climbers consider unnecessary risks?  How do you stay focused when fear is trying to take control over your mind, and the likely consequence of a mistake is serious injury or even death?"
Excerpt from the Crackoholic website.


Be sure to check out the trailer.
