Where: Lądek Zdrój, Poland
Lądek-Zdrój is a small resort town in south-western Poland. It lies in the Sudety Mountains in Kłodzka Valley. The whole region is very hilly and densely covered with forests. It’s a geologically interesting region that used to be very volcanic active. You can climb here on all types of rocks granite, basalt, gneiss, sandstone, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. Sudety Mountains offer apart of climbing lots of hikes, cycling and in winter skiing opportunities. We will be climbing on rocks close to the town which are great for getting a feeling of being in the mountain. You have some uphill approach, 30 – 40 m long routes, abseiling descends and changing weather.
