ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:

For this festival, around 20-30 new routes (next to 40 existing ones) of various difficulties, will be bolted. The length of the routes is mainly from 20-25 meters. More information (beside the online topo) will be given by the organizers on the spot. Climbing on top-rope, will be punished by whipping. Every one of the new routes will carry 1000 points, and this number of points will be divided by the number of participants, that have climbed the route. When you calculate the number of points, you can carry that number in your heart, as a sign of accomplishment, because you won't have any benefit out of it, whatsoever :D

No, seriously, the festival is really laid back, so if you want to climb and hang out in good company, feel free to join us. still, the hardest grade climbed and the largest number of climbed routes will not go by unnoticed :)

NOTE: It is recommended to all participants to wear helmets during climbing.

HOW TO GET THERE: Take a loog ath the site on GOOGLE MAPS. In village Baraći that is located on the main road take a turn to the village Pecka, and after that towards village Ubovića brdo.
