Hey, here we are, already for the sixth time. Brush, saw, chalk, paint, pencil, brush, saw, chalk, paint, pencil, …
26.04.2008 we will go together to Petrohrad village to attack the mysterious Petrohrad forest and its beauties. This year we reopened an older area, which had already some problems, so could be that some climbers would already know, where it will take place.
Anyway let's try to keep this a secret.
250 boulders are prepared for this year. The majority of them are beautiful stunning lines- some of them are pure highballs.
This year we focused on opening of easier stuff so also people climbing 4, 5, and 6 Fb will be happy.

Of course there are more than 60 problems above 7A, and we believe that there will be something also for the top class boulderers.
Surrounding is just great- setting has no bushes, mosquitoes or nasty landings. Its about 20 min from the car.
Petr Resch in Hypotéza, 8A, Petrohrad
We proudly preset these top problems:
Krucistisk, 8A+, Neue Mädchen, 8A+, Virgule, 8A/A+, Blues session, 8A, Klystýr, 8A, Zabíječka snů, 8A
and many new open projects.
All classifications are only based on opinion of the FA team so we would be glad if you will comment it.
Main competition (Czech ranking)
Everyone's eight hardest boulders will be counted.
The most boulders in the day.
There will be some bonus problems hidden in the forest which won’t be in the topo and your task will be to find them and climb them.
