In Manínska úžina, featuring Kostolecká úžina and Bosmany, you can enjoy limestone walls that boast an array of routes, including some traditional ones. Here, the crags are mostly vertical with crimpy holds, so good climbing technique is needed. It's advisable to have a long rope, particularly in sectors with harder routes. Additionally, some trad gear is appropriate to use as additional protection.
If you'd like to explore newer crags, visit the conglomerate cliffs of Prečín and Domaniža. Here, you can train your fingers in routes with many holes and small pebbles.
