/ Climbing in Croatia/Slovenia?
There is also the possibility of going a bit further north and higher to Slovenia .
We’re after experiences and suggestions re: the climbing and general climate that time of year, as well as places to stay either in Croatia or Slovenia . We also don’t mind cycling, history, photography and hanging out at the beach, it doesn’t have to be all about the climbing.
We climbed in Rovinj at the end of July last year and it was fine. You could climb happily in shorts/swimwear until lunchtime when it got too hot and we just nipped down to the beach to cool off. It's lovely as the climbs are just above the beach so you can have a leisurely lunch and swim and then back on the crags in the afternoon once the sun starts losing it's heat.
We also went to one of the inland crags but I'm afraid I can't remember which one it was now though. That one was in a wooded area so that wasn't too bad either.

Our club ChesterMC make regular trips to Paklenica, its a superb spot.
We stay in a place called Staringrad, hiring a chalet. Its about 10 mins drive into the Paklenica gorge. There are loads of superb routes as pointed out above of all grades. Staringrad is a really nice little village, lots of places to eat also.
I really enjoyed BRAHMS Route on Anika Kuk which was 18/20 pitches odd from memory, with all VD/Severe climbing and then two 5B crack pitches which you can aid. Fantastic route!
We are a small family camp, situated directly by the sea, some 6 kilometres from the town of Starigrad – Paklenica, the heart of the Paklenica Riviera. The Paklenica Riviera is a favourite destination for the hikers, climbers, bird- watchers, as well as mountain-bike fans and those in favour of a quiet, relaxing family holiday with abundance of sun, sea – exploring and great culinary offer of our local restaurants and taverns.
