Brilliant!

The Eastern European Sandstone intrigues me and yet also strikes fear into my heart - the thought of climbing those cracks with no conventional gear and no chalk - yikes!

In reply to Duncan Campbell - UKC:

Looked great, didn't it! I wonder how the rock 'feels' compared to UK sandstone, when it's never had any trad gear or chalk to affect it

In reply to Fraser:

Its softer and quit often more sandy.. thats why the metal gear is forbidden, cause the rock is too soft to take it - would make all cracks into offwidths
In reply to Tom Briggs: I think the carpet slippers they use might actually be ok for climbing in. I once saw someone from eastern Europe climbing Cool Moon in them - this must have been over 20 years ago.
