We are off to Croatia in May and are flying direct to Split. I wondered if anyone had any advice on good crags nearby for some fairly easy single pitch sport climbing? We are wanting a half climbing holiday, half relax holiday and need to book accomodation soon so any advice on good areas/ crags/ villas are much appreciated! Would probably prefer to stick close to the coast rather than heading inland so we can do some island hopping aswell. Thanks!

Paklenica is your venue to google for. About an hour by bus from Zadar. Lots of single pitch sport routes. Worth taking one set of nuts and a few extra slings so you can do the big wall adventures which tend to be sparcely bolted on the easy pitches. Mosaraski (sp) has 9 pitches, cruxing at F5 near the top of an amazing 300m cliff.

Hvar should be top of your island hopping list, and Debrovnik, if you make it that far south, is stunning.

In reply to Jenny Clarke: Try Brela or Omis, both quite local to Split, both coastal holiday resorts and both with climbing.

In reply to Jenny Clarke: In split itself is the Crag of Marjan and the DWS venue of sustipan. You could hire a car in split and take it across to Hvar, look for accomodation in Jelsa or starigrad with lots of climbing at different crags across the island. look at www.cliffbase.com.
Also Iglusport www.iglusport.hr is a good shop in split.

Enjoy :0)

accomodation in Split? Try croparadise.com.

As far as climbing goes, you may want to visit Marjan as well. You'll find some nice and easy routes there. It may be a bit warm in May, but the view is magnificent. Single pitch routes in Paklenica are nothing special, so if you decide to go there, climb some multi-pitch ones. I'd recommend Karamara sweet temptations, Danaja, Oprosti mi pape, Mosoraski, Celjski stup, Sjeverno rebro (as good as it gets)...
