Climbing in Europe

Post by danielgfolk » Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:05 am

My wife and I are headed to Europe for 3 weeks in the end of June and first of July. I was looking for advice on climbing locations throughout western Europe. Looking for mostly 7b and down. In the yosemite style, 5.9s thru 5.11s is ideal. thanks everyone

Sport or Trad? The Dolomites are amazing, and as long as you could string 20ish consecutive pitches of 5.9ish trad you could give the Cassin on the Badile a go. Check out route db. It has pretty good info on most places in Europe. I spent last summer in the Dolomites/Val Bregaglia and am hoping to go back this year. If the weather smiles on you coastal trad in Corwall is pretty perfect as well. I think I will be in either the Lake District or North Wales late June/July if the weather holds. Spain will be quit hot by then, and other then Kaly I have yet to find any fun 'sport' in Europe under hard .11. Haven't been to Verdon yet but it is supposed to be real good. Switzerland has some awesome mega long semi bolted routes. Finally, Paklinka in Croatia is meant to be amazing and well cheap. Late June/July is a kind of odd time. The high mountains may not be in play yet, but the valley crags well be sweltering in southern Europe. I guess Arco on Lake Garda would be good. We had a nice time there last year. Lots of sport (single and multipitch) and trad, if you are OK with limestone trad.
hey, if you yell to your belayer saying "why charles III, you are quite possibly the worst belayer ever" will he throw his tea on you?
