Bükk hills and valleys are covered with widespread forests. Here and there you can
catch a glimpse of the hills'skeleton - the rocks.
These hills possess lots of climbing places, but most of them are not developed
yet. Three main crags are Dédes, Hámor and Fehérkõ. The beautiful white limestone
rocks standing above the green forest give magnificant view.
These rockfaces are the highest in Hungary. The nice limestone rocks hold
more than 50 routes from VI to VIII+. Most of them are bolted, for some routes
you need nuts and slings.
The crag is part of the Bükk National Park. There is a great camping place
under the rockfaces, you can get water from the spring in the valley.
You can get there through Bélapátfalva and Szilvásvárad. Turn right at the second
crossing after Nagyvisnyó. Park at a children's camp. Follow the yellow trail
to the cliffs (2 km).
The rocks rise from the park of Hámor-valley. The duality of this region seems
on the rocks, too. The solid limestone rockfaces are well-developed, yet still
look wild. Most of the 50 routes are face and overhang climbs (V-X-).
Getting there: from Miskolc drive towards Hámor, the cliffs are both sides of
This white stone-mirror on the side of Jávor-hill is unique in Hungary.
Most routes are technically hard face climbs, with sharp edges and small holes
(VII-X-). These brilliant routes remind climbers a bit of Verdon.
Blasted by the sun from early morning to sunset the south facing rockface
works like a huge solar collector, giving it a microclimate. Climbing is
possible from late February till November.
Coming from Hámor, turn left before the lake at Lillafüred, park at the last stop
of bus 5. Walk up the serpentine path to the cliff.
