Summary

Lesser known part of the Zamutovské skaly massif, a few hudred meters further into the forest.

Description

Andesite walls and towers typical for Slanské Vrchy, very nice slabs and cracks, very rarely overhung. As it is a little known area, it offers you peace and calm, but also a tougher approach (no really good path) and in some places a little worse footing while belaying.

Access issues

Tougher terrain, very unstable soil underfoot, from Zamutovské Skaly you reach the top of the cliffs and need to scramble down between them.

Approach

From Zamutovské skaly, follow the asphalt route until a sharp right turn. Go off into the forest there, following the old forest road. You need to get up to the ridge on your left. Alternatively, from the parking lot, follow the blue trail, than at a big oak (with names scratched in the bark) turn left, past a small meadow with a hunting post. A hundred meters later, go left (cairn), then keep right until a big intersection, where you find a trail to the top of the ridge. There is a path following the ridge, with small cairns marking starts of descent routes. Be careful, the terrain is very loose.

Where to stay

As with Zamutovské Skaly, Penzión Kondor is the closest place to overnight. Camping is prohibited in the area proper, but there is a nice place by the asphalt forest road aou take for access.

Ethic

  • no new routes
  • dont disturb soil cover on tops of rocks and ledges
  • keep quiet
  • no camping or fires
  • use existing trails, don't mark new ones
  • careful with rocks falling
