Rilski manastir

Climbs 50 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 1450m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Granite, boulders - multi-pitch and mountaineering, from 4 to 8c+ (5.6 to 5.14c)

The rock is solid, loads of lines are well cleaned from mosses and lichens. You can rarely pull out or break a hold/step.

So far there are 3 sectors - Camp 4, The Tunnels and The Bridge.

The access some of the sectors is by trekking up a moraine river and the landing on most of the boulder is safe, although climbing with a crash-pad is a must.

If the conditions allow, you can climb from early March till late November. However the best time for climbing is autumn and spring, summer is usually too hot. Camping is possible on a small glade surrounded with trees from all sides (keeps shade all day) but only environmentally aware behavior will be tolerated.

Approach notes
You can park at Kirilova polyana or down by the monastery and walk but it's a half an hour walk. It's roughly an hour and a half drive from Sofia.

NB! Note that climbing in Rila is tolerated, but not authorized; we are still working towards making it officially legal.
