Siná, Horné skaly – Surprise, VII

Probably the most beautiful part of the Demänovská valley consisting of a limestone massif which stretches from the mouth of the valley to the half of the Siná mountain. Climbing is permitted only in the bottom part of the mountain, from May 1 to Febuary 28. The bottom part is divided into Horné and Dolné skaly. The exception is valid until 2022 but we believe that it will be extended. Climbing here is very unique and special. The rock is solid and has many faces, so the climbs here are technical and endurance demanding. Most of the holds are small. More than 100 routes vary in difficulty, ranging from VI+ to X+ UIAA, with most of them having the difficulty level of about VIII. It is, however, important to remember that the routes are half a degree more difficult than the routes in the other climbing areas. The whole massif faces south, so the rock is hot in summer. With the exception of the bottom cave, the whole area is ideal for climbing on cold days. Because of the features of the rock, the whole area best suits experienced climbers who will not regret visiting Siná.

Liptovský Ján, Biela dolinka – River, VII+

A nice quiet area hidden in the woods of the Biela dolinka behind the Liptovský Ján village. It comprises several limestone reefs that are divided into four main sectors. It is suitable for beginner as well as experienced climbers who favour technical routes. The big advantage is that climbing is allowed all year round and so you can spend nice time here on warm winter days.

The routes are technical and the longer ones are also strenuous, requiring a great deal of endurance.

Demänovská dolina, Ertoid – Traja kamaráti, D10-

Newly established drytooling area in the Demänovská valley. Drytooling is a form of rock climbing in which ice axes and crampons are used to climb rock. Instead of using hands to rock climb, the climber hooks ice axes onto holds and pockets. Climbing Ertoid requires a lot of power and endurance. The climbing area consists of a wide limestone overhang which is only about ten metres high but it is very steep, with a short roof on its top. Climbing here is permitted all year round. The wide overhang protects against rain but when there are heavy rains, water runs down over it. There are quickdraws clipped to the bolts during the winter months but they are removed in summer.

Demänovská dolina, Repiská – Slniečkár, X-

Probably the most difficult climbing area in the Demänovská valley consisting of a limestone arch soaring over the Repiská hotel. It comprises three distinctive arches and a technical face situated in the right lower part. Climbing here is permitted all year round but it is good to check it on www.james.sk. The area offers power and endurance climbing. The rock is relatively solid and most of the routes lead to a distinctive overhang. There are more than 50 climbing routes ranging in difficulty from V+ to X+ UIAA, with most of them having the difficulty level of around VII. As the whole massif faces south, the rock is hot in summer, especially the arch which is even a bit hotter. That is why it is better to climb it in winter and autumn, or in rainy weather. It is ideal for strong sport climbers who want to push their limits.
