Why Rock Climb in Bulgaria?
Bulgaria, such a great location during the Spring and Summer months, with many crags located in deep gorges with rivers running through the bottom, trees a plenty to provide shade and combine that with great value accommodation, fantastic food and that Eastern European feel, whats not to like?
We base our courses right in the centre of the country near the City, Veliko Turnovo. We also recommend “the eyes of god cave” as a day trip and for the Alpine feel, we can combine a trip to Vratsa to complete the Bulgarian experience.
We can run Introduction to Sport Climbing. Introduction to Traditional Climbing or build a week just for you.
“Sport climbing” is the style of rock climbing where the routes are protected by semi-permanent “Bolts”. There are many ethics surrounding the type, material, placement method and spacing of these bolts.
With a modern equipped sport climb it should be relatively safe to fall from any point, with the notable exception of gaining the first Bolt.
For the Introduction courses no previous experience is necessary, but it would be advantageous to have a working knowledge of basic personal protection equipment and belaying skills.
For all courses we recommend you bring your own shoes, harness, helmet and belay device. We can supply the above should you have any problems. All other equipment provided at no extra cost. Ask if you need all equipment and we can provide it.
You will cover all aspects of Sport (bolt protected) climbing, bolt recognition, lower off recognition and how to use them correctly. Ethics and styles of sport climbing. On both single and multi pitch routes.
On a 5 day course, 7 nights of accommodation are provided. We have the use of a local self catering guest house, however you can chose from alternatives. Check out the where to stay page.
On completion, you will have a much deeper understanding of sport protected routes and the equipment used, be in a position to competently second harder sport climbs, gain the confidence to competently and safely tackle sport climbs at your limit.
You will need to arrange your own flight to Alicante airport. We will discuss with you private transfer or using public transport to arrive at The Orange House. All transport during your week is provided. Shopping trips are included before and after each day.
