The Sand Rules, traditional climbing on the sandstone towers in the Czech Republic

by

The documentary The Sand Rules by Fabrizio Zampetti and Andrea Rizzi featuring the fascinating rock climbing on the sandstone towers in the Czech Republic and Saxon Switzerland in eastern Germany.

The Elbsandstein sandstone towers in the Czech Republic and in eastern Germany close to Dresden are steeped in climbing history. With the help of local climber Tom Krul, Fabrizio Zampetti and Andrea Rizzi explore the severe ethics and trad gear used to protect the climbing in one of the birthplaces of European rock climbing. A tiny microcosm steeped in tradition, which conserves all the charm of adventurous climbing as experienced by its early pioneers.
