In a courageous undertaking, gymnasts from Schandau climbed the 80-meter-high summit in 1864 - the idea of free climbing was born! In the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, traditional climbing is done exclusively on free-standing peaks and without artificial aids. Sporadic rings in the rock are used for safety. Over 1,100 free-standing towers offer a wide range of activities for climbers.
