Moravia Climbing Guide

This guide draws on some of the earlier publications such as:
I. Horolezecké terény na Moravě by Ivan Sitař (1960)
II. Horolezecké terény v okolí Jeseníku by Bohumil Hajzera and Jiří Jakubíček (1970 – not published)
III. Cvičné skály na Moravě published by Olympia Praha (1988)
IV. Jeseníky, horolezecký průvodce by Jiří Vogel (1996)
V. Moravské skály by Vladimír Skýpala and Vladimír Wolf (2010).
And it is further supplemented with new routes and red points in the established areas and new areas which could not be included in the above mentioned guides. Routes are classified by UIAA classification for routes and Franch classification for bouldering. Winter routes are classified by mixed classification and Jasper’s Emotion scale (E1–E6).

The climbing guide is being corrected and complemented throughout the year. In case you find any discrepancy or manage a new route let us know.

Because of the constantly changing demands and laws of nature conservation, this guide provides all the areas where climbing has ever been practised until new climbing guides will be published. Every climber is obliged to get acquainted with up-to-date climbing terms and conditions (especially in protected areas) and follow them.

Sport climbing rules respected in these areas are based on the resolution of Czech Mountaineering Union from 11. April 2007.

It is banned to use fixed pros in boulder areas and at Vysoký Kámen, potential use of removable protection devices is tolerated. In case you aid the already free climbed route (which is unsporting), do not use fixed but only removable protection. In the areas of Vyhlídka and Suchý vrch we ask you to follow the restrictions on use of chalk.

In the most of the areas the original fixed pros were replaced by certified bolts and rings. This does not apply for areas for winter climbing (especially the valley of Branná) where the original pitons were left. Therefore we appeal to all climbers to pay close attention to the protection and to use also other types of pros in the areas with the original pitons. In the rebolted and reanchored areas do not use more pitons because the rock is damaged by hammering it in and driving it out all the time.

In the end we want to stress that climbing is a dangerous sport and authors of this web are not responsible for injuries and damages to property caused by use of this guide.
