Ciovo is very close to Split area with a great DWS potential. Development of DWS started 2005. and there are just about 110 routes (5c-7c+) to climb there. Routes are usually much higher (up to 20m) than on Sustipan area and climbing is more serious and dangerous. Certain sectors are impossible to climb without chalk! Possibilities for hard routes is enormous!
There is 12 sectors so far and interesting thing about them is that every one is different from the other by the height, rock formation, holds and color, so you feel like visiting completely different area. There is a big number of projects here on Ciovo and we can’t wait for some strong climbers to come and climb some of those!
Note: Our company Avantura d.o.o. is organizing deep water solo trips. Please do contact us for details!
By car you can get to Gospa od Prizidnice, monastery which lies on the south side of the island just by the vertical cliffs of Ciovo and you can have there great day of swimming in the crystal clear sea with beautiful colors.
Al do it is very probably the best deep water solo area in the region, it is very hard to reach it without a boat and even if you get on the south side of the island, the distance between sectors is to large to swim.
