The grades vary from the very easy to the near impossible. Adam Ondra climbs here often and there are many high standard boulder problems up to Font 8B, many of them opened by Ondra himself..."

Thanks, a very useful article. It only 50 miles from my current second home near Teplice, where I will to move to full-time soon.

Jiri, is there any nearer bouldering for me on volcanic rock? I've seen the cliffs at Boren but are there any good boulders there?

Is it possible to get round by public transport once you're there?

My mum and dad gave me the book for birthday to try and get me to come over to czech more often. The climbing looks sweet... if a bit green. Also, apparently, "using of poof is prohibited".
Does anyone know if the grades used are Font? Scoured the book but this isn't stated anywhere and I'm not sure what the convention is in czech.
