Vojtech, IFMGA certified guide, invites you to a special spot in the Bohemian Paradise, Prachov rocks, to enjoy sandstone climbing for 1 or more days.
The Prachov rocks are a diamond of the Bohemian Paradise, in Czech Republic. Rock climbing here started over 100 years ago.
In the Prachov rocks there are various climbing options in labyrinth of sandstone towers. Indeed, we can practice slab, friction or crack climbing, from thin fingers crack to chimneys. Moreover, if you want and you have the skills we can even jump from tower to tower.
One of the most popular is the Dresden Tower (Drážďanská věž). The Praying Rock ( orHand of the Monk) is also very popular.
We will meet in the region and start climbing! We can go for one or more days.
Interested in rock climbing in this very special spot of the Bohemian Paradise? Then please send me a request indicating the number of days you want to come. I would love guiding you here! And there are other great options for climbing in the area that you can check out here.
Ideally in Jičín or Turnov (good bus or train connection) or directly on Turistická chata (Tourist Cottage in the Prachov Rocks) – parking. From this point it's a 2-minute walk to rocks and towers.
Camps: www.prachovskaosma.cz, Jinolické rybníky (Eden), or pensions in location.
Climbing in case of rain or after the rain (up to 24hs) is not allowed. In this case I will modify the program.
I appreciate if you bring climbing shoes, as renting of these is limited.
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!
Votjech is top of the pack where guiding is concerned! He understood our level of fitness and still pushed and helped to make the experience special. Very safe and safety conscious! Highly highly recommend him !!
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.
I had a magnificent ski-tour from hut to hut in the Giant Mountains. The powder snow conditions were wonderful, the scenery very fine and there is a very good network of comfortable mountain hostels and huts. However, a key element that made my tour such a success was the expert help of the organisers and my guide. Jan Novotny and Roman Kubát have an excellent outdoor store in Vrchlavi and were able to provide me with all the equipment I needed as well as taking care of all the organisation. The guiding service offered by Vojtěch Dvořák was excellent and I give him 10 out of 10 for each of technical expertise, knowledge of the area (including ability to explain many interesting features of history and geography) and care of the client. Thanks to these three, this was an excellent outdoor experience I shall not forget and that I can highly recommend to anybody interested in Alpine ski-touring.
