Szklarska Poreba is a bustling tourist town along the boarder. Famous for its glassworks and health resort this small town has plenty to entertain: a waterfall, all the ice-cream you can eat, skiing in the winter, great hiking trails, and even a roller-coaster. But most importantly there is some great climbing... There are many small granite outcrops and towers scattered around the area, many easily accessible from the main road.

Getting There

This is the easiest and most obvious of the routes here. Follow a line of bolts over multiple overhangs and wild features. Continuously steep physical climbing is separated by good rests. Some of the ledges are big enough to crawl inside and lay down, but it is awkward to stand up and continue climbing. The final overhang before the anchor is probably the crux. Pull over the massive bulge using a tiny dike or sharp jams in a crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
