Prilep Bouldering Guidebook in Macedonia

by Mark on June 28, 2015

30-June-Prilep-GuidebookPrilep is located in southern Macedonia, and is the country’s largest climbing area that is best known for its high quality bouldering.  It is this bouldering that has started to attract climbers from all over Europe. Petzl recognised this potential as they included Prilep as part of their Petzl RocTrip in 2014, which they described as “one of the most beautiful bouldering areas in all of Europe”.

Overlooking the town of Prilep is a chaotic and huge granite boulder field where over 400 problems have been established, with the potential to develop many 100’s more.  The style of bouldering found at Prilep is predominately crimpy with the emphasis on finger strength though there are jugs, cracks and huecos as well.

The Prilep Bouldering Guidebook has just been published covering over 400 boulder problems across a wide range of grades from Font 5 to Font 8a+. All the boulder problems are shown on colour photo topos along with boulder maps at the start of each section.  Published in March 2015 this guidebook is in English and Macedonian text throughout and includes many excellent action photographs.

Buy this Prilep Bouldering Guidebook for £22.95 plus P&P.
