Summary

Well developed climbing are at the eastern side of Bükk, in Felsőhámor.

Description

Well protected 6-40m high climbing routes on varied limestone rock formations - crack climbing, face climbing, overhangs, chimneys and slabs. There are almost 100 routes in the area with countless combination options, grades mostly reside between V and IX (UAII). Since this has been a well-known, easily accesible climbing area for nearly 50 years, the holds and steps on the most popular routes can be very polished. Because of this, some routes might feel hard for the grade. This is primarily a sport climbing crag with a few dry-tooling and some aid climbing routes. Multi-pitch climbing is possible on longer routes. Ice climbing is possible under the suitable conditions with the permission of the crag's governing body (http://www.hszjse.hu/). Being natural limestone cliff faces (not an old quarry like many other Hungarian crags) the rock is generally quite solid, apart from the rear sections of the two main cliffs. The crag is mostly made of the two obvious large cliffs: Kis Fal (Small Wall) and Nagy Fal (Big Wall). For further details, topos and rules (only in Hungarian) see the local governing body's website: http://www.hszjse.hu/hamor

Access issues

Climbing is allowed all year long. During nesting time of specific bird species, climbing on certain routes might be prohibited. In such cases, notification is well marked at the route.

Approach

The cliffs are literary next to the main road, on the two sides of the road. Parking is possible at Felsőhámor at unrestricted parking spots. Less than 5 min walk to the cliffs.

Where to stay

Plenty of apartments around Felsőhámor, Alsóhámor and Lillafüred.
