Summary:
Sport, Unknown and other styles

Long/Lat: 15.470452, 44.303408

Description:

Depending on your inclination, you may perceive Paklenica either as a most convenient venue with rock-climbing of many tastes served on a silver platter - or as an overcommercialized outdoor gym. Paklenica's limestone offers numerous routes of all difficulty, from boulders, short sport routes to harrowing multi-pitch trad adventures. The more frequented sectors are well signposted; benchmark routes are labelled with small plaquettes. Paklenica is a national park. The climbing is restricted to the great gorge. There is an entrance fee to be paid for entering the gorge, 5-day-discounts (within 30 days) are available (check http://paklenica.hr). The narrowest (and most frequented) part of the gorge is a few steps from the parking. Here you can climb also with small children - if you ensure they don't fall down the 1-m-embankment into the creek. Further up in the sides of the canyon there are many multipitch routes in various grades, less suitable for families. The most famous rock formation is Anica Kuk with routes up to 350 m. Most of the routes in Paklenica are well bolted. Grading is in UIAA or in French scale.

Where To Stay:

The close-by town of Starigrad, as well as all villages along the coast, boast a wide selection of accomodation: camping, hotels, villas.

Summary:
All Sport

Long/Lat: 15.031374, 44.499284

Unique Features And Strengths:

Quiet beach and beautiful pinnacle Stogaj

Description:

Beautiful setting also for non-climbers. Most bolts are quite rusty while the homemade hangers are still shiny - you decide if this is a good sign. The backdrop cliff is of solid limestone, providing some shade; the pinnacle feels like some limestone breccia - interesting holds, but sometimes a bit flaky.

Approach:

Driving from Novalja to Ziglen (ferry) take turnoff right towards Metajna. Pass the village and continue till you reach the abandoned restaurant "Kanjon" close to the beach. Park and follow the faint path behind ridge for ~ 1km to the bay below the pinnacle.
