Kjugekull is in the south of Sweden.

No doubt Kjugekull in Sweden is on the list because 8a.nu's swedish origin means that a disproportionate large number of swedish climbers registrer their ascents compared to e.g. italian or american climbers. Kjugekull is also popular with danish climbers since it can be reached in about two hours from Copenhagen.

Cocalzinho(Cocalzinho de Goias/Goias/Brazil) is the best bouldering area in latin america,,can be considered a brazilien hueco,font,Rocklands......maybe only 30% or less of the aera has been developed. but has already more than 1000 established boulders.

Joe Meiners, here is a link to the Kjugekull homepage. With 1100+ boulders in a very nice scenery I guess that Kjugekull deserves its place among the top-20 most popular areas.
