From big wall adventures on Monte Brento to bouldering in Petrohrad. Check out the latest reports from our athletes. Follow them on their spectacular climbing trips around the globe.
Finally I found some time to write some lines about my latest experiences in Czech´s bouldering area Petrohrad. Many people might never heared about it, I can only say: I love this beautiful, quiet place in between those middle European forest.
At first some key facts about Petrohrad:
I had two perfect one day sessions during April: The first we spent in three of the most famous (and best) areas "Pod Hradem", "Brána" and "Vyhlídková Skála" on the other hill side.
In Pod Hradem it was my plan to climb the awsome roof of "Grace Runners" 8B, a crimpy section which leads into the morpho "Tomb Raider" 8A. In the end it only was possible for me to crush "Hrob neznàmého boulderisty" 7C+ in a few tries. At our way to the other areas we stopped at the highlight boulder "Vasek" 7C +, which also went down in a few goes.
At the end of the day we visited an other, for me well known place Vyhlidkova skala, with many classic boulders within the beautiful forest of Petrohrad. On the other side of the hill you will also find some rock, as well big Highballs as some crazy low balls like "Zelena Lady" 8A. Freaky hooks will lead you into a slopy mantle. Also this bouler went down quite good, so I decided to come back a few days later to try the extention.
But sometimes you don´t get what you want – 20 °C, by far not the best conditions to try this boulder. Nevertheless I could send off "Elza" 8A, the powerful left exit of "Noodledream", "Magicke Oko" 7C+ and "Jan Kubis" 7C+, in another sector, just above the parking area in a flat and open hillside, really worth a visit.
