Hello dear NLMC members.
I would like to start this thread to get an idea about how many of you plan to come to the Saxony climbing trip in May. There are several options regarding huts and getting around, but this also depends on how many we will be:
- Huts in the “Elbsandsteingebirge”. The one I had in mind for the beginning is already reserved and full. Another one is this one: http://www.asd-dav.de/?page_id=22
These huts are quite inexpensive and fulfill the basic needs. We would need a car to get around or use public transport which would come at the expense of valuable climbing time.
- We can sleep outside in so called “Boofen” which are cave like overhangs where we could sleep. Click on the pics in the link to see what it is like. These caves are very close to the actual crags. We would hike from crag to crag and to each cave for the night.
- More organised hotel rooms and bed / breakfasts like these, http://www.felsenwelt.de/Kontakt/Ubernachtung/ubernachtung.html, in the heart of the mountains or a little bit more outside. I have some in mind where I somehow know the owners.
- There are also camp grounds fairly close to the climbing areas.
1st of May is also a busy weekend in Germany. Hence, I would like to reserve some places soon already. Who of you is willing to join, and what kind of places to stay would you prefer? How many days should I plan the trip for?
Have a merry christmas time!
