A guide to more than 500 climbs on stunning looking limestone crags near Vratsa, Bulgaria, of which around 250 are fully equipped with bolts for sport climbing and the rest are trad, alpine or mixed and partially equipped with in-situ anchors. Length varies from short one-pitch sport and trad routes, through several pitches, to the longest ones, of 10 to 13 pitches - the latter situated on the majestic 350 metre Central Wall.

For each sector, routes are traced out on photographs; bolted belays are marked with white-filled circles, and belay points equipped with pitons or needing temporary protection (nuts, cams) with black-filled ones. Information about the sport routes includes grade, length, number of quickdraws needed, year when they were equipped and by whom - but that's all, so you won't blow your on-sight! For trad/alpine routes, you also get short pitch-by-pitch descriptions and topos. The first ascent date and first ascensionists' names are given as well.

Along with the book you get extended access to the support site www.climbingguidebg.com, the section holding information on Vratsa's climbing routes. You get access to up-to-date information on new or changed routes, along with older and newer topos not included in the guide book.

In Bulgarian and in English.
