Kamieniec Castle, near Przadki, South Eastern Pola...
Poland is a great place to experience Eastern Europe. The country is developing at a rapid rate. So now is a wonderful time to visit. In the urban areas, it is not difficult to find any modern comfort. However, in the surrounding rural communities it is still possible to get a glimpse of the "old life". The people are friendly and proud. The cities are beautiful and historic. As far as climbing, most is in the southern regions of the country. There is a decent amount of sport climbing around Krakow and Wroclaw. But the best climbing in Poland is outside of Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains. Here you will find imposing alpine-style routes on dark granite.
Most international flights will arrive into Warsaw. It is also possible to fly into Krakow. There are no major highways as of yet in the country, so driving does take time. The rail system can also get you to most any location.

One of the best 5.7 sport pitches anywhere. There really are no difficult moves, but you won't know that from looking at it. The route follows the lower angle side of a beautiful arete. Bolts are just close enough to make it safe, but far and sketchy (old spinners) enough to keep it interesting. The good holds force you onto the arete for the most exposure you could experience in 60 feet of climbing......[more] Browse More Classics in International
