Geocache Description:

Klepec hill

The hill reaching 358m above sea level is called Klepec according to German word „Klippe“ (cliff)

The trail starts on the top of the greatest one from the group of granite boulders which is called Slouha (servant), because it resembles a slouch stature from certain point of view. Climb down and be careful not to fall.

The stone has been considered to be a menhir by some authors. In fact, it as a residue of ancient integral massif, destroyed due to numerous earthquakes. In the Tertiary era, water leaked into vertical fractures and broken the rock into pieces. Then in the Quaternary period, rain water washed broken pieces away to the neighbourhood. We can see horizontal rills on its faces, called pseudo grikes, which resulted from water erosion.

The Klepec hill has been declared as a natural monument because it is notable geological phenomenon representing the bale-form weathering of coarse-grained granite.

Your log may be accepted only when you visit the locality and fuilfill following tasks:
1. What Slouha block was formerly considered to be?

Klepec hill

Jmeno tohoto vrchu vysokeho 358 metru od hladiny more je odvozeno z nemeckeho klëp a znamenalo "svisle skaly" nebo "utesy".

Pokud jste na vychozich souradnicich, nachazite se na nejvetsimu ze zdejsich zulovych kamenu, tak opatrne slezte at nespadnete. Zulovy blok se nazyva Slouha. Jmeno balvan ziskal patrne podle toho, ze z jedne strany pripomina shrbenou postavu.

Ve starsi literature je nekdy oznacovan za menhir, ve skutecnosti je tento kolos zbytkem kdysi jednotneho masivu, ktery pred miliony let zpocatku narusovala cetna zemetreseni. V obdobi tretihor zatekala do svislych puklin voda, ktera zulovou skalu silne rozrusila a ve ctvrtohorach voda odplavila odlomene kusy do okoli. Na jeho stenach si muzeme vsimnout tzv. pseudoskrapu – horizontalnich ryh, tato vznikaji vodni erozi.

Prirodni pamatka Klepec vznikla z duvodu ochrany pozoruhodneho gelogiceho jevu, zokoviteho zvetravani hrubozrne zuly.

K uznani logu musite navstivit tuto lokalitu a splnit nasledujici ukoly:
