Teplice Adršpach in northeast Czech Republic consists of about 800 towers with 1800 routes. The history, strict pure ethics and some unusual climbing styles are fascinating. Metal protection is not allowed in cracks, hence the fine art of using knotted ropes and slings for pro. New routes are established ‘ground up’, bolts are 'spaced, and chalk is not usually used. These ethics have helped the preservation of the soft sandstone and created a legacy of some extremely serious routes — and a breed of very bold local climbers; such as Miras Mach placing knotted rope pro on Přeuisla (11d).
