Description 

This is the rock with the cross at the top of the mountain. There aren't really any great climbs, but there are great views and a there is a nice wall to take beginners. There is only one bolted route, and the only route recommended by the guide book isn't even technically on this rock. The Hippopotam a 5.8 trad route is actually on a small steeper buttress on the SE side.


Getting There 

Follow the black trail toward the top. A garbage can marks the start of railings and stairs to the top. From this point you can walk either way around the rock. The shortest way to the routes is to the left. Look for a stone staircase through a notch on the left. Go down a gully keeping to the right until you find your way out onto a ledge system at the base of a slabby wall. If you walk around the right side, you will first come across the routes on Zamkowe Skaly. Just continue along it's base and you can reach the same point...

No stars in the book, but turned out to be a fun little climb. It would probably make a good first trad lead. Mostly jugs lead you up through "overhangs". Really just small overlaps on a mellow slab. Watch out for tourists dropping garbage from the cross. It gets a little sandy near the top, but there is a nice fist crack to the left that makes the top-out more interesting (but a little harder)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
