As with the climbing guidebook for Northern Bohemia already published in 2003, climbing destinations made of non-sandstone are presented this time as well. In the "eastern part" this concerns in particular the rocks of the Jeschkengebirge/Ještěd, which in the recent past have been wonderfully furnished with new bolts, abseil rings and summit books by Czech mountaineering friends. Especially mountain lovers of medium difficulty will get their money's worth here.
But also sports fans of higher difficulty ratings will find numerous destinations in the revised climbing guide. Among them are the Mathauschwand, the Fellerkofel, the Oberwegsteine and the Rabensteine, which also offer ascents up to the 10th degree of the Saxon/Bohemian difficulty scale.
On the already mentioned Mathauschwand, the approaches are also equipped with numerous bolts in the best sport climbing manner.
Individual climbing crags or groups of crags, which have a larger number of ascents, are shown on so-called ascent sketches (bird's eye view) and topo sketches (side view) for better orientation.
The mountain lover should pay special attention to the pictograms listed next to the rock name. These give further important information, which should help in the selection of the rocks to be visited, in a short and easily understandable form.
An innovation in the presented climbing guide is working with QR codes. With their help, a variety of additional information on the individual climbing areas, such as access, parking, rock or closure times, can be accessed via a separate website.
