Valley with numerous small and mid-sized sandstone towers and blocks
The village of Ostrov sits at a (car-)dead-end road right at the border to Germany. Passage to the popular Bielatal by foot or bike is a breeze, but the cliffs around the village already offer hundreds of climbs. As in adjacent Czech areas, grades can be a bit of a surprise: they may correspond to Saxon system, but in other cases underrate climbs by up to three or four letter grades. This is not the area for number chasing. The village also offers several bars, a lake for swimming and the occasional visit of ambitious high-line slackliners.
