As winter ends its finally time to let go of the cold steel ice tools and take a grip on the nice and warm rock. Poland maybe doesn't have the climate of Spain, but the beginning of March brought some really good weather for sandstone climbing in the south end of the country. For those unfamiliar with the sandstone ethics, one of the basic rules is that neither hard protection (cams, or nuts) nor chalk is allowed. Thus it can get a bit tricky going out further and further above the last ringbolt on the first climbs of the season. But on the other hand most of the climbs are barely vertical and in most cases simply slabby. Even the harder graded ones. Therefore climbing there requires much more technique than stamina or power... unless that is leg power:)

 

 

That was a week ago, and since then we've had some snowfall all around the country again there was no real rock climbing this weekend. But... for those who enjoy the landscapes and climate of sanstone climbing - check out the b&w photo gallery. For the rest... please wait just one more week - I'll be leaving to Catalunya for a two week trip and hopefully will have some good news to share with.
