Climbing on Sicily: San Vito Lo Capo

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!

nove mesto nad metuji

Climbing in Czechia: Nové Město nad Metují

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.

Climbing in Costa Blanca in Spain – multi-pitch routes

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.

Climbing in Poland: Sokoliki and Rudawy

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.

Climbing in Leonidio in Greece

Leonidio is a small town 200 km from Athens, which I have visited in October last year. 5 climbing days did not allow me to get to know the area in depth, but I did some interesting routes.
