Welcome to El lloc es aquí, ELEA, a place to find helpful tips and my personal take on different climbing areas in Europe. A highlight of the site is the information on climbing at Sächsische Schweiz (Saxony Switzerland). You probably know the place from the numerous accounts about its strong ethics and bold climbs. However, there is much more that makes the Elbsandsteingebirge a mandatory visit for every climber: a huge collection of exposed needles, impressive walls, and strange rock formations that constitute a dream playground for climbers of all ages and skill-levels. The number of climbing lines is so high and the difficulty and commitment so broadly distributed that gathering beta and choosing the right route is a daunting task. This blog is designed to help you in the process by providing photographic topos and route descriptions as a complement to the existing climbing guides (Kletterführers).
In Climbing destination you will find all the available areas in sub-menus. Inside each section there is general information about the area’s mean features. With time, this menu will grow to include destinations in Switzerland, France and Spain.
In Miscellaneous I’ve gathered posts on random thoughts about my climbing in different places.
