From Earth to Heaven 7+ is 550 meters multi-pitch sport route on Alpawand in Austria. Route offering nice climb on small holds on limestone. Last pitches (on The Nose) are outstanding! Alpawand (one of the highest wall in Reiteralm) is nice opportunity to short brake on travel to other alpine destinations. Altought route need endurance and solid climbing skill in seventh grade.
One of the most amazing sandstone ares are in Czech. In Adrpach and Teplice you have hundreds of talls sandstone towers. You cannot use chalk, and metal gear for protection. You have protection from some rings and knots. Check this movie "Sandstone" about history and climbing in Czech :-).
Absolutnie kultowy film wspinaczkowy na temat polskiego wspinania w latach 80-tych. Dodajmy do tego, że w filmie pojawia się ówczesna podkrakowska czołówka wspinaczkowa (Korczak, Kurtyka, Marcisz). Uwiecznione zostały wspinaczki na klasykach Podlesic i Krakowa. W drugiej części Wojtek Kurtyka żywcuje Abazego VI.3+ w Dolinie Bolechowickiej.
L'abito non fa il Monaco 6b (6a obl.), 260 m is eight multi-pitch route on Pizzo Monaco in San Vito Lo Capo on Sicilia. The route is quite popular in this area. Pitches are bolted (S2, take 12 quickdraws) but for the last pitch maybe take some slings.
One of the best climbing spots in Sicilia is the area of San Vito Lo Capo. Near to this small Italian city, you have climbing routes from 3a to 8b. From easy slabs to long overhanging marathons on tufas. You will find almost everything. If you will be bored by sport climbing then you can try multi-pitch climbs.
The earth has lot of spectacular mountains. Some of these peaks are famous, while others are not as well known. This list of 57 amazing peaks is quite nice. No mater that you're a mountaineer, or just traverel. You will find tall mountains here and mountains which more than make up for their smaller size in terms of their unique geometry.
Mountain boots are one of the most important - and often most expensive - pieces of equipment, so carefully think about them. If they are mismatched, too hot or too cold, your climbing will lose a lot for pleasure :-).
