One day climbing (sports) training for beginners – around Zakopane or Krakow

Jura, Tatras and surroundings: Year-round offer

“The first step” is a one-day intro in Dolina Lejowa (Witów near Zakopane), where you will learn the basics of sport climbing and overcome the first climbing routes in the rocks! Everything with an experienced climbing instructor and using the latest equipment from Black Dimond.

The knowledge you use will be used on a climbing wall, while for people who want to climb the rocks on their own, we recommend a two-day course on 1 and 2 level insured roads.

About this place

The Lejowa Valley is practically the only rock available for sport climbing around Zakopane, which is suitable for taking the first steps. In total, it has 11 roads, of which half will be used during classes. The stream flows right next to the rock, which makes climbing more enjoyable.
