Highlights

 
     

    Come discover the unique vertical world of the Czech Republic! We will go climbing on the Czech sandstone of the Bohemian Paradise and other areas. The Bohemian Paradise is a very picturesque area, 100km northeast from Prague. The landscape is extraordinarily diverse, there is also very special flora and fauna.

    Joining me, you will get to know the special characteristics of sandstone climbing. For example, we can go to the Prachov Rocks or the Adrspach Rocks. 

    We will go to the Mazes of the rock towns. I will lead you up to the top of beautiful rocky spots. During the journey, we will encounter chimneys, cracks, edges and walls. There is a special technique that I will teach you called “building” where we stand on top of each other’s shoulders. We will scramble across cracks or balance in the smearings of Teplice Rocks, Adršpach, Bišík or Cross Hill.

    During the climbing trip we might meet extreme climbers. Indeed, they are living legends of sandstone climbing. We can share some time with them in one of the typical Czech climbers’ pubs.

    There are two rules for climbing in the Bohemian Paradise. Firstly, it’s forbidden to climb when it’s raining or it has rained in the last 24 hours. Secondly, chalk can not be used.

    The 3 main reasons why I like to guide my clients here are:
    – Unique history of climbing and great sandstone material;
    – Limited protection with rings and knots only;
    – Beautiful landscape and genius loci.

    About the Guide

     
     

    My name is Vojtěch but everybody calls me Watt. I started climbing when I was 16. In 2009 I got certified as a mountain guide.
    My favourite activities include climbing, MTB, skiing and trail running.
    These are some of my favourite crags: Prachovské skály, Bišík and Zbiroh (sandstone in The Bohemian Paradise) and Moravian Karst (limestone).
    One of my best climbing achievements was in Val Qualido (Italy), also the north face of Malý Kežmarský štít, in the High Tatras (Slovakia), and many more!
    As a side job, I am the editor in chief of an outdoor web, I write methodology articles for climbing magazines and climbing comics.

    Vojtech is clearly an expert in his field. He made me comfortable every step of the season. He also took the time to show me around Turnov, very cool!

    Vojtech is a fantastic guide - safe, knowledgeable, and very good at assessing the skills of his client. The sandstone in the two City of Rocks sites we visited is even more interesting than I had guessed. It was also enjoyable to climb Trad-with-knots! I highly recommend Vojtech and this region.
