Rubin (middle difficulty)
1 / Bartum
Bartum, also called St. Bartholomeusberg ( St Bartholomew mountain) is an alternative historical name for Klínovec and its adjacent top parts.
2 / Prales (Virgin Forest)
Ore Mountains used to create an impenetrable forest wall which the Romans considered safe protection against a possible invasion of the German tribes. Something still remains from the impenetrability and magic atmosphere of the virgin forest, which was called Miriquidi or Dunkelwald (dark forest), in this difficult to access part of Klínovec forests.
3 / Starkenberg
This section is situated on one of the sub-ridges of Klínovec massif. In translation it is probably a wide ridge. Rather moderate slopes allowed a fun and playful section to be located here.
4 / Salzereith
The word reith probably refers to a clearing or glade. Salz means salt.
5 / Klunker
Historical maps give the name Klinkerhau. Hau means a clearing or glade. Now if you take the word Klinker and exchange one letter, you get the word klunker. Who doesn´t know what klunker means, shall use google!
6 / Zvonivka
Again the area of Klinkerhau. Klinker means according to the translator a brick or a clinker. Zvonivka is a type of a brick. And also a great section.
7 / Mittelberg
Mittelberg refers to a range of lower slopes below Klínovec. Historical maps distinguish between Mittelberg, known as Černý vrch (Black Hill) to us and Grosser Mittelberg, which refers to the lower levels of Klínovec massif. It is on these slopes that you will find the section.
8 / Edellen
Edellen, Edellautstollen or Saxon Nobelmen´s Adit – different names for one of the most important historical adits. According to maps it used to be in the lowest levels of the slope, where this section leads.
