Croatia's Ghetto crag! Much more pleasant than it...
This could be the ugliest crag in the entire country! BUT it does have it's redeeming qualities. Set in a park on a little peninsula surrounded by water and great views, this tiny urban crag has over 80 routes. It's a perfect place for kids as most of the routes are short and easy and right by the beach. The picturesque town of Rovinj is a tourist hotspot centrally located on the western coast of Istria. There are tons of good hotels and campgrounds. Other good crags are a short drive away if you are staying here.
Some of the rock is covered in graffiti, as you can see, but the rock quality is pretty good. So good that the Venetians used to quarry it for their palaces. Luckily they left enough for climbing on.
To find the crag, first locate the Hotel Eden (this is a huge resort hotel on the SW side of town, there are lots of signs to lead you there). Then just follow Ulica L. Adamwica (the street) south until a giant parking lot. Take the trail west down to the beach and hang a left. Before long you will start to see the rocks.

It's short, but very sweet. The holds are a bit sharp, so warm up appropriately. There is a variation that heads out right (also rated at 6c) after the first bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in International
