Brela

Dalmatia, HR

The crag is located above Brela, a town located on the coast of Adriatic sea, and offers lovely views over the coast and islands. Austrian climbers (Christian Hacker, Martin Simek, Joseph Reiner, Christian Miller) started bolting this area during their summer vacation in 1988. The orientation of this crag means that it is boiling hot during summer. In general, the crag dries quickly after rain. The routes demand good technique and endurance, and are mostly from 5a-7a. There are a lot of easy routes suitable for beginners and those climbers keen to climb easy multi-pitch. The crag was rebolted in 2019 with glue-in bolts, but only first pitch of the multi-pitch routes was rebolted. So bear in mind that these multi-pitch routes are less equipped after the first pitch. A 70 meter rope is best, but you can climb all routes with a 60 m rope because routes longer than 30 meters are equipped with an extra anchor in the middle that you can use for lowering. In sector 'Shark', locals usually only climb the first pitch of climbs on the left side (Yoshua tree, Mugendance...Cafe Central), and the routes from 'Silver Surfer' to 'Schwertlilie' are meant to be climbed as a single pitch (equipped with an extra anchor for lowering). In addition to climbing, there is a beautiful trekking trail called Napoleon's road that starts just by the crag and it is a must-see while you are there. You will see info table few meters before the parking.
