Dovbush Rocks (Skelі Dovbusha) is located in the Carpathian Mountains on the border of the Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk districts near the village of Bubnische. More than a hundred routes on spectacular sandstone formations ranging from 5.7 to 5.13. All lines are bolted, but many cracks could be lead on gear. If trad is the goal, a double rack of cams from fingers to fists, some wide gear, and a set of chocks will get you up most routes safely. For clipping bolts, 15 draws will get you up the longest single pitch route Yura Generator (5.10d). Bring a 60 meter rope with a tagline or double/twin 50 meters ropes.
Getting There [Edit]
Dovbush Rocks can be reached from Lviv or Ivano-frankivsk. The easiest options is to drive (100km) from Lviv, passing through Striy, Morshyn, Bolekhiv, to Bubnische. From Bubnische, you can drive or hike to the rocks depending on conditions. On public transportation from Lviv, there is a bus Lviv - Truhanov. Ride to the end of the route, then hike for an hour to the cliffs. Another option, and the cheapest, is to take the train Lviv - Truskavets to the town of Striy. From Striy take a bus, taxi or hitchhike to Bolekhiv, then continuing to Bubnischa. From Bubnischa, hike 30 mins to the cliffs.
