This route might be the most scenic climb on the entire island of Hvar...which is saying a lot.In addition to feeling like you're in some exotic climbing film simply due to the setting, the moves themselves are just loads of fun. Slightly overhung limestone pockmarked with massive buckets keeps you thinking, and the Mediterranean sun bakes away the sea grime that usually forms on stuff this close to the water.

Lots of undeveloped rock here, ranging from big caves the gray slabs the multi pitch and DWS. I saw alot of potential waiting the adventurous bolter, especially heading west from Sveta Nedlija on the dirt road that goes to Hvar.

The drive from the town of Hvar to the climbing at CliffBase can take an hour if you stick to paved roads, or about 45 minutes if you take the dirt road that goes from the south (Hvar town) side of the tunnel directly to Sveta Nedilja (the town next to CliffBase). The dirt road is well-traveled, well-maintained, easy to pass other cars on, and was fine for our rented passenger car.
