Szklarska Poreba is a bustling tourist town along the boarder. Famous for its glassworks and health resort this small town has plenty to entertain: a waterfall, all the ice-cream you can eat, skiing in the winter, great hiking trails, and even a roller-coaster. But most importantly there is some great climbing... There are many small granite outcrops and towers scattered around the area, many easily accessible from the main road.

Getting There
