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.
Maximum quality and quantity of climbing.
This course is a great way into climbing culture. It’s intense for sure, but this means you’ll develop your skills quickly and progress way faster than you thought possible. Join the Rockbusters beginner climbing courseNovice and you’ll quickly reach new heights and be ready to take on epic routes you could only dream of.

We provide all the gear, but you will need to bring your own reasonably tight climbing shoes and harness. We have belay devices, slings, and helmets, but you might prefer to bring your own. We strongly suggest bringing a down jacket, a hat, a rain jacket, a pair of comfortable approach shoes, a headlamp, a sleeping bag, and a backpack big enough for carrying lunch and gear to the crag.
Upon arrival, before you get to the place of your final destination you will need to stop in the store to shop for breakfast and lunch food for the week. There is equipped kitchen with a refrigerator in the place and close-by shops to replenish supplies.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars to have dinner. Communal dinners can be organized if required.
