Description

Paklenica National Park is one of Croatia's most diverse national parks especially if you're interested in rock climbing or hiking, and is one of the top climbing areas in Europe. Located in the southeastern part of the Velebit mountain range which runs along the central Dalmatian coast, Paklenica National Park covers 40 sq. miles and includes one of the largest forests in the Mediterranean. The two outstanding canyons of Paklenica Park, Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica, show splendid karstic limestone formations.

Paklenica park offers the unique pleasure of combining rock climbing and hiking along with swimming the same day. Starigrad is the closest town and the starting point for your drive into the Canyon. All this lies right on the Adriatic Sea.

Anica kuk is the main big wall soring to 350M and has routes from 5.8 (4c+) to 5.13a (7c+). The rock is fantastic limestone, yet can be a bit rough on the finger tips.
