Summary

Beskid Mountains are Poland's largest area mountains. There are numerous small crags throughout, mostly of local significance.

Description

At this huge area you can find a few sandstone crags. Most of them offer bouldering but few cliffs are high enough and bolted for sport climbing. Trad routes are not hard to find, but they are rarely climbed. Short multipitches are only found on Kobyla Skała and Krowia Turnia, but all of them are usually done in a single pitch.

Access issues inherited from Poland

🦅Check in with the "Ptaki w skałach" spreadsheet for routes with nesting birds. Search for a new spreadsheet if the one linked is from an earlier year.

Ethic

There are no set-in-stone ethics for the Beskid Mountains and Carpathian Foothills region, but there are guidelines everyone should follow to minimize the impact.

  • Never climb on wet sandstone. You have to wait for 1-4 full days after rain depending on the area as the rock is brittle when wet.
  • Use chalk reasonably and remove it when possible. The white spots worsen the aesthetics, reduce friction when too much is built up, and sometimes irreversably change the mineral structure of the rock.
  • Avoid overbrushing. Only use brushes with soft bristles and do not press too hard.
  • It is better to use UFOs and knots (textile protection) instead of metal gear when trad climbing, but both are usually deemed okay.
  • Do not create artificial holds. It is allowed on some quarries, but even there it is reserved for a select few.
  • Avoid climbing in areas where it is explicitly forbidden (all national parks, most nature reserves, some natural monuments).

Unfortunately, all of the rules stated above are broken regularly, often times by experienced local climbers.
