BETA PHOTO: Hamor Big Cliff Continued
Located at the west exit of the town of Miskolc, Hamor is the choice local crag. There are two cliffs of clean and well bolted limestone that are maintained by the local climbing club. Each cliff is across the road from each other.
When heading West, on the right is the Small Cliff that gets most of the traffic and includes many great routes that will test your ability to stand on small slippery polished limestone foot holds.
To the left, across the creek is the Big Cliff featuring many more routes, some of which are quite pumpy. You can also do a long traverse of this cliff in 2 pitches.
Both of these areas are a few seconds walk away from where you can park your car, and a bar is conveniently located right in the middle, at the road corner. This area is ideal in the spring through the fall. It can get a little hot in the summer, but you can easily chase the shade.
There is a vibrant local community of climbers and also non-climbers (at the bar) and besides some motorists speeding by on their way to the windy mountain roads, the ambiance is about as good as it gets. This is one of the rare crags I have been to with literally no approach time, no dust, well maintained lawn and benches and tables at the foot of the climbs.
Climbs range from 5.7 to 5.13. The limestone is mostly bolted using double-pin glue-in bolts that are convenient for lowering or even top roping from any bolt. The highly enthusiast community of climbers has certainly bolted the rock a lot, sometimes making it difficult to stay on a route unless you are very familiar with it.
Driving or bicycling from Miskolc. There is literally no approach.

: ... : Big Cliff
One bouldery/pumpy crux at the start. Easy middle section to 2nd crux near top. Nice, long climb with exposure and beautiful views. A bit hard to find the key holds at times. 60m rope is just enough if belaying from the ledge. Make absolutely sure you have enough rope for lowering!!! Can be done in two pitches also. Harder(for me) than other climbs of the same grade in the area....[more] Browse More Classics in International
