Myllyjärvi bouldering cliff and roof cave

On my way to swimming in Myllyjärvi, I noticed a bouldering cliff, with an overhang. Quite a spectacular roof cave, maybe 35 meters long and 4-5 meters deep.

Nice. Need to come some day and measure it more accurately for a map.

Even though sizeable for a roof cave, this cave does not appear to be listed in the caves of Finland book (Suomen Luolat) or in Retkipaikka. Jarmo had been there before, however, and obviously there seems to be plenty of climbers visiting it, given the cleaned rock face...

The coordinates are N 60.27997 E 24.65810.
