Description

Kőkapu (Stone Gate) is a really cool arch that offers some fantastic bouldering opportunities. Specifically it's a nice place to practice some fun roof climbing moves at a relatively safe height.

I don't have any information on specific routes as this area is not covered in the Magyarország Sziklamászó Kalauza (Climbing Guide of Hungary). None the less, it's really easy and fun to make up your own problems. There are some really challenging 2 or 3 finger pockets, huge jugs, slopers, crimpers, you name it.

Kőkapu is located on conservation land and while I'm not aware of any prohibition against climbing, I advise keeping a low profile. Make sure to clean up after yourself and if possible take some garbage out with you if you see any laying around.

There is a water pump on the Görgényi út before you get on the trail.

Getting There

Take the 11 bus from Batthány Tér (or Mechwart Liget) to the last stop - Nagybányai út. Walk down the Görgényi út for about 50 feet or so and you will see a trail leading into the woods on your left. There are markers showing the way (white square with green horizontal line).

Follow the trail mostly downhill for a few hundred feet until you come across an obvious trail. Turn left and follow the trail for another couple of hundred feet. Kőkapu will be on your left. Nice views to your right.
