The rock consists of hard, strongly structured granite with siliceous inclusions.

The climbing walls were secured with drilling and adhesive hooks, but a range of wedges, friends and loops should not be missing.

description

Geologically and historically similar to Sächsische Schweiz, the climbing shares the same ethics and bold climbing. There are, however, also climbing on non-freestanding formations and some bolted routes with sport-climbing protection level.

http://db-sandsteinklettern.gipfelbuch.de/gebiet.php?gebietid=2 hosts a extensive rock and route database with potentially life-saving hints (in German).

http://www.skalnioblasti.cz has similar information in Czech.

ethic

Parts of this climbing area are within the Bohemian Switzerland National Park. 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 befor and have to be authorized by the National Park. Retroactive applications are not possible.

  4. Use marked access paths!

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.

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.
