/ Paklenika single pitch
Soon off to Croatia and intending to spend some time in Paklenica. Can I do most of the easy access single pitch climbing with a 60m rope?
Also any particular non climbing recommendations for the general area?
I would say yes. I quick flip through the guide shows only a few over 30 m. However I would also say it is worth taking double ropes and a small rack for some of the larger mountain routes if you can. The routes around the shop area are getting quite polished
I'd agree with that, the mountain routes in the area are great.
I hope you're not coming to soon as it's raining here in Paklenica at the moment . Well I'm actually in Zagreb awaiting a plane to Zadar but the forecast is much the same there.
My info is not up to date (I went in 2003) but we had one 50m rope and got loads of single pitch stuff done.
Should be ok for close to all single pitches. For route lengths, here is an overview: http://www.plezanje.net/climbing/db/showCrag.asp?crag=695.
