Climbing in Hungary

The last weekend I finally started my climbing season for this year. Together with some new friends from Hungary I went to Csókakő in the Vértes mountains, which is about 1½ hour with car from Budapest. The rocks here are limestone and the routes are around 20 meters with fixed bolts rather far apart from each other in some cases. Difficulty levels vary but most of the routes that have grade VII to VIII also have overhangs, which suits strong climbers.

The mountains here are not so tall, around 350 meters, but the scenery is still rather beautiful with the Csókakő Castle just next to the climbing area; but without climbers and tourists walking the same paths.
