DescriptionIf you climb much harder, there are better routes to do. Nevertheless, this is a CLASSIC! Probably the most climbed route on the face. It is rated 6a+ which translates to 5.10c. The crux pitch is a little polished from all the traffic, but didn't seem harder than 5.9. The first 7 pitches hover between 5.3 and 5.6. Pitches 6 and 7 should be linked, since 7 is super sort. This is plenty of warm up for the crux (pitch 8) witch is a beautiful steep stemming corner. A pitch of 5.8 and one of 5.7 bring you to the top for spectacular views of the Adriatic!
LocationHike to the base of Anica Kuk, shouldn't be too hard to find, it's the biggest thing in the park. Just right of center of the wall, is a left to right slab/ramp. Look for a giant carabiner! You'll know when you see it. This is the start of the route. There is some easy 3rd class to scramble up to ledges at the start.
To walk of the top, head up the ridge-line to the true summit and follow painted bulls-eyes down and around the NE and eventually back to the base. The route faces mostly North, and is in the shade all morning, It is a good way to avoid the heat of summer. If it is really hot, get off before the afternoon sun gets on it.
