Petrohrad bouldering in the Czech Republic
Petrohrad is the best bouldering area in the Czech Republic, situated 50km northwest of Plzen and 80 km west of Prague. Much like Fontainebleau, the area is divided up into many sub-areas in a mysterious forest and offers thousands of problems and an enormous potential for the future.
At present there are circa 3000 boulder problems and since every week new ones are added, even the local climbers find it difficult to keep up with the development. The boulders are located in scenic natural surroundings, predominantly deep in the magical forest but some are also to be found in open fields surrounded by a wild, hilly landscape.
The boulders are comprised of a rough, often rounded granite which offers excellent friction. While the vast majority of problems are relatively easy, there are over 60 problems harder than Fb8A, with the hardest at present being Fb8b+. There is pretty much something for everyone and at the end of the day all climbers head to the village Petrohrad with its nice pub, good food and excellent beer...
