Climbing again in Bulgaria

One thing I had really missed and looked forward to do again was to climb in Bulgaria. The first weekend after being back in Sofia I went out with a friend to climb two places.

The first day we went to Kominite in Vitosha. This climbing site offers sport climbing routes with several rope lengths (multi pitch). At this place slow climbing is best while enjoying the nature and view, and the level of difficulty is not so high.

The second day we climbed Pod Polynata (translated “under the moon”) in Bozhenitsa. This is the only sandstone routes in Bulgaria and a lot of the indoor handles for climbing halls are actually molded from these rocks and exported all over the world. Climbing style here is also sport climbing but with only one rope length and more technical/difficult options.
