Description 

These limestone crags are up to 50 meters high and are pretty well protected with glue-in and traditional bolts. There are rappel anchors on top and you'll generally need two ropes to descend from the tallest routes. The cliffs sit on the left (north) side of a small canyon/drainage and get good sun and air, so dry fairly quickly.

Getting There 

This area is located in a small canyon about an hour drive to the NW of downtown Sofia. You'll need a car and someone who already knows how to find the area, as it's a bit tricky (the best bet in this regard is to contact some Bulgarian climbers in Sofia before you arrive).

From the paved parking area at the end of the road by the Belidie Inn, cross a wooden footbridge over a creek and turn left (up-canyon). You can see the cliffs from the footbridge on the left side of the canyon. Walk on a easy-to-follow trail along the right (south) side of the canyon for about 2-3 minutes until the trail crosses the drainage. Continue up-canyon on the trail for maybe 5 more minutes as it gains some elevation above the creek bottom. You'll then see some steeper access trails that lead up and left to the base of the crags. Total approach time from the parking lot by the inn to the main buttress (known as "The Butt") is roughly 15 minutes.
