Summary

Valley with numerous small and mid-sized sandstone towers and blocks

Description

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.

Access issues inherited from Labské pískovce

Parts of this climbing area are within the National Park České Švýcarsko. For these areas the following restrictions apply:

  1. Climbing is only allowed on peaks and massifs specified by the national park authorities

  2. Please inform yourself about seasonal closures due to breeding birds

  3. First ascents have to be applied for and have to be authorized by the National Park. Retroactive applications are not possible.

  4. Use marked access paths!

Approach

From German side by foot or bike, from south via Tisa. No public transport.

Where to stay

There is a rustic campground and a 4-star-hotel in the village.
