The newest climbing area in Liptov consisting of a 50-metre-high conglomerate rock. It towers over the boundary of the Studničná and Komjatná villages, in the municipality of Ružomberok. It hosts beautiful climbing routes for climbers of different levels and offers an opportunity to climb long routes. An amazing feature of conglomerate rock is that it has many holds, scales and notches, which is why the area is the top rock climbing destination in Liptov. The view from the top of the rock is one of the most beautiful in the region.
