Behind the dominant of Maloskalsko

Dry rocks, formerly also called Kantor's organ, form a significant dominant feature of Maloskalsko. Horologically, together with the nearby Pantheon, they are part of the Ještěd-Kozák ridge. This relatively rare and very attractive geomorphological formation in Bohemia has been protected for its unique shapes since 1956. Since 2000, it has had the status of a National Natural Monument (NPP). Suché skály are easily accessible from the road leading from Malá Skála to Koberov, or from the village of Prosíčka between Malá Skála and Vrát. Although Suché skály are an attraction for tourists, for safety reasons there is no marked path in their immediate vicinity, as the fall of stones due to climbing activities cannot be ruled out. Another reason is the protection of the already well-attended NPP. Steep wooden ladders between the rocks have been built for climbers who are used to moving in difficult terrain. The ideal view of the panorama of the rocks is from the Sokol hill, to which you ascend along the red tourist route from Malá Skála to Besedice.
