The Place

Cesky Raj, known as the Bohemian Paradise, is the oldest nature reserve in Czech Republic. Despite being only an hour’s drive from Prague, climbing here has a remote, wild vibe. Steep rock cliffs plunge straight down into deep valleys and tall sandstone towers are covered by lonely pine trees.

There are very few bolts (or sometimes none) and using friends, nuts and other metal gear is prohibited to protect the rock from damage. Climbers use knotted prusiks and slings of different sizes for protection. This adventurous style of climbing is closely linked to the local climbing mentality, which is very traditional and purist. It sounds odd but it works

The Mapo Tapo Czech Trad course

Very few foreigners climb on the stunning towers of Cesky Raj, even if these rock formations are world-renowned. Why? Well, trad climbing without cams nor nuts is not for everybody and it is almost impossible to find public information on how to do it safely. This is what the Mapo Tapo Czech Trad Climbing course is about: climbing the incredible sandstone of Bohemian Paradise, learning from local guides how to use this unique and pure style, preserving the rock for future generations and gaining the respect of the locals.

  • 3 days of rock climbing and trad clinic with local IFMGA mountain guides. You are free to learn the technique and lead or climb second with the locals.
  • 3 days of photo shooting by Jan, one of the guides who is also a climbing photographer
  • Accommodation in a rustic self-service cottage within the natural reserve, a short walk from one of the climbing areas.
  • Mapo Tapo supports the development of climbing in the area: we re-invest part of revenue from our trips in the climbing infrastructure and work with locals to boost sustainable tourism.

Our basecamp

Climbing Skills

The trad climbing master is conceived for climbers who want to climb the unique sandstone towers in Bohemian Paradise and are curious about the Czech trad climbing technique. Even though you will be accompanied by a certified mountain guide, you'll need to be confidently climbing at least 5c to get the most out of the area. Add to that a curious attitude and thirst for adventure, and you'll have a great trip.

Liability

Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. We can for any inaccuracies, however, accept no liability. Rock climbing is a risk sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge not to go outdoor alone
