Amazing route on high quality stone, with a consistent angle and climbing for the first four bolts and then a couple of fun moves off of a tufa to a ledge. Very very good!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

The Bulgarian climbing website linked above is a very good resource. I used the forum on the website and Google Translate to look for partners prior to my arrival in Sofia. I quickly and easily found three local Bulgarian climbers that spoke English and were willing to take me climbing.

As of 06/2013, there was a climber's club in Sofia as well as at least one indoor climbing gym ("Boulderland" at Paradise Center Sofia).

The linked website is the equivalent to MP for Bulgarian climbers, even with an english only section in the forum. There is lots of great climbing from sport to alpine all over the country. With many great climbers willing to partner with locals. Sofia is the main hub for climbers and there are 2 main climbing gyms (Gravity and the Attic of Sofia University). Both can be found with a google search.
