The parliament building in Budapest on a snowy win...


Budapest is the capital of Hungary. There are many world heritage sites to be found amongst the great museums, churches, and other historic buildings.

There are several climbing areas that are easily accessible from the city via public transportation. I'll put up separate areas for each one as I have time. In the meantime, here is a quick list.

Rókahegy (Fox Hill) is an old quarry found near the Csillaghegy HÉV stop. About 22 routes on limestone up to about 22 meters tall.

Francia Bánya (French Quarry) is another old quarry found near the Fenyőgyöngye final stop of the 65 bus. Lots of bouldering opportunities on a low traverse and about 12 routes up to about 15 meters tall on limestone.

Buy the Climbing Guide of Hungary (Magyarország Sziklamászó Kalauza) from any of the Mountex outdoor sporting stores for details and great pictures of the routes.

Getting There 

To get to Budapest you'll probably fly or take a train. You can get to the climbing areas via public transportation.

There is no official name and rating for this route yet. It is a variation of Kénköves, with it's own separate bolts in the middle part. Head up on the crystalline wall to the ledge, and stick to the irregular, off-width to hand sized crack from there. This is the crux, take care with the jams as there are some sharp ridges and plenty of pointy crystal teeth in there. After that head up some pretty weathered limestone to the chain anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
