While it is not one of the most physically challenging climbs out there Zaoceanske Bublinky was one of my top sends of 2019.
The left bank of the Labak is one of my favorite places to climb in the Czech Republic. The climbing area is easy to get to via train and takes about 2 hours if you are leaving from Prague. It has nice hard sandstone (comparatively speaking) with beautiful holds and great friction. In the left bank you can climb towers, faces, chimneys and cracks and yes you are allowed to use chalk.
One of my climbing partners showed me this route on my second climbing trip to the area and I decided to give it a shot. The first challenge is getting to the first bolt which is 5 meters (20 feet) off the ground. It is fairly easy climbing and there is a place where you can put a knot that I would deem a 7.5 out of 10 in terms of trustworthiness. Above the knot you have to do a short sequence on only friction feet
