ELENA PEAK VIA THE EAST FACE

SWIMMING IN A SEA OF GRANITE

The Malyovishka valley is the cradle of Bulgarian technical alpinism, and one of its most beautiful jewels is the east face of Elena peak. The routes on this wall boldly weave their way through difficulties, drawing elegant lines through the waves of this sea of ​​white and red alpine granite.

The beauty of this rock drawn into sharp vertical shapes will captivate you at first sight. By moving through the cruxes you will experience that primitive and irresistible euphoria of the challenge of climbing.

In up to five pitches, together we'll climb straight up and right through the heart of the wall, so you can enjoy every single meter of its challenging alpine beauty.

Once on the summit, however, you won't feel a sense of satisfaction. The surrounding panorama, home to some of the longest and most challenging alpine routes in our country, will fill your soul with more and more desire for adventure and you'll be all the more eager to return as soon as possible!

To become part of this adventure, you need to have experience in belaying a guide and be able to comfortably climb 5a-5b on rock.
If you don't have previous rock climbing experience, we highly recommend first taking our fully customizable rock climbing classes..
