The company SINGING ROCK gave a boost to three
climbers who are fond of climbing both the sandstone
and the granite in Jizerské mountains.
These three guys are going to take part in the
International climbers’ meeting in American Utah this
The International climbers’ meeting in Utah is going
to be held from 3th to 12th October 2008 and it is
organized by the American Alpine Club. The program
of the event is going to be varied. Probably the best
attraction will be Indian Creek, which is famous
for its crack climbing, bouldering in the surrounding,
watching films etc.
