The european travelling climber: Spring in Kompanj, Fontainebleau and Arco – Summer in Paklenica, Zillertal and the High Mountains – Fall at the local crags & Winter in Siurana, Kalymnos and Geyikbayiri
But – Climbing in Bosnia and Herzegovina?
To all the curious climber souls, wandering minds and the “i’ve seen it alls”: Good news are, there still are a few spots on the map that are off the beaten path – Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country rich with diverse forested mountain landscapes, quiet villages, welcoming locals, great food and an enormous abundance of uncharted and unnamed limestone!
We invite you to share our rock and the privacy of our climbing areas with us. Lets get together and celebrate a european climbing culture and a region where one can still experience the ‘pioneers of the vertical’ spirit – Exploring, bolting and first ascents.
The bolting festival will be focused on the development of the (mainly virgin) Canyon, where we will set up camp for 10 days. Due to the alpine terrain, experience with multipitch – climbing, steep approaches and loose – rock is advised! For less experienced climbers who want to join us, we can point out some nearby sport climbing areas.
CALL FOR ROUTESETTERS !
- If you are a routesetter and you would like to visit, explore and help us with bolting new routes – be it hard & steep endurance hammers, slabby old-skool stuff, classic ridge line scrambling or establishing some trad lines – please contact us using the contact form. Bolts and anchors will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis, according to the registration on our website.
!!! Due to the alpine character, solid multipitch climbing experience will be an absolute requirement for all bolters. In order to ensure safety and a good atmosphere among all participants, the bolters are asked to share the rock in a cooperative fashion, engage in a small amount of coordination with the festival organizers and to respect the local bolting ethics !!!
- If you are new to bolting but would like to join us and share your love for climbing or the outdoors, your help will be more than needed. Just drop us a line.
- And for everyone else who wants to just climb or explore a new area off the beaten path, hike or hang out by the fire, we should be able to arrange something for you as well.
Everyone – Please register or drop us an email or sms so we can plan ahead for the logistics and the distribution of material
The closer you get to real matter, rock, air, fire and wood, boy, the more spiritual the world is. [..] Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.
