Pełcznica is a small but worth visiting climbing area in Świebodzice, an hour away from Wrocław. It should especially appeal to intermediate climbers who like sporty, quite strenuous routes.

Krucze Skały in Karpacz is a small climbing area, but rich in bolted routes in the IV – VI range. For people climbing at this level, it can be a good alternative to crowded Sokoliki.
Multi-pitch climbing is not a piece of cake. Things don’t always go according to plan ;) Read what didn’t go well during my climbs and how to prevent problems.
Lovely place! The location of the rocks by the sea is one of San Vito’s greatest assets. Plus a lot of routes on the five-six level. One week was definitely not enough!
I haven’t climbed on something like this yet! The rocks in Nové Město nad Metují, although not very diverse, are also different from Jura, Sokoliki and any other climbing area I have seen. In addition, the pleasant location by the river and the lack of crowds make this area a very nice change from other climbing regions.
Sierra de Toix and Penon de Ifach are two 330-meter-high rocks located right by the sea between Alicante and Valencia. Recently, I had the opportunity to climb them on several-pitched routes. Read how it was and where else on the Costa Blanca you can do multi-pitch climbing. I write also about attaching the belay device wrong way and what to do to avoid making a mistake like me.
I’ve recently spent 1.5 weeks climbing the Costa Blanca. During this time, we visited several climbing regions – Gandia, Bellus, Sella, Guadalest, Cabeçó d’Or, Sierra de Toix and Peñón de Ifach.
Planning climbing in Poland? If yes, I hope my dictionary would be helpful. Almost 150 words and phrases in 7 categories: rock formations and types of holds, climbing commands, gear management, climbing gear, technique, knots and other.
Sokoliki (also called Sokoły or Góry Sokole) and Rudawy Janowickie are two areas in Poland which can be actually treated as one region, as they are very close to each other. They’re located in south-west of Poland, about 15 km from the town Jelenia Góra.
There are two major climbing areas in Poland: Sokoliki / Rudawy which I will describe in next article, and Jura Krakowsko-Częstochowska, located between cities Kraków and Częstochowa.
