Ertoid, Demänovská dolina - Traja kamaráti, D10-


Newly established drytooling area in the Demänovská valley.  Drytooling is a form of rock climbing in which ice axes and crampons are used to climb rock. Instead of using hands to rock climb, the climber hooks ice axes onto holds and pockets. Climbing Ertoid requires a lot of power and endurance. The climbing area consists of a wide limestone overhang which is only about ten metres high but it is very steep, with a short roof on its top.

Climbing here is permitted all year round. The wide overhang protects against rain but when there are heavy rains, water runs down over it. There are quickdraws clipped to the bolts during the winter months but they are removed in summer.

Form: drytooling

Climbing permitted: all year round, the exception is valid until 2022
