Sandstone climbing

21.05.2022 - 28.05.2022

  • Explore one of the best and totally unique types of rock for climbing in the world
  • Improve your climbing technique & mental game
  • Find out all tricks Czech sandstone climbers use
  • Climb BETTER, HARDER & MORE

If you’re familiar with British gritstone then Czech sandstone will be surprisingly similar. If you’ve got no idea what we’re talking about then all you need to know is that the Czech sandstone of the Elbe Mountains is one of the best rock types for climbing.

 

This is your chance to experience some of the most unique and exciting Czech climbing, accompanied by some of the finest guides you could ever wish to meet (even if we do say so ourselves). It’s perfect for climbers who’ve got a fair bit of experience under their belt looking for new challenges and a bit more exotic climbing styles, but open to anyone who can belay safely and tie on without assistance.

 

Throughout your stay, you’ll be guided by a local climber and route developer who’ll use their local knowledge to take you deep into the Elbe sandstone. These ancient rocks straddle the border between German Saxony and Czech Bohemia and are, not surprisingly, a national park. The River Elbe has carved a narrow gorge through the soft sandstone, creating some stunning cracks and crevices that will get serious climbers pretty aroused.
