: ... : North Side of the tower
This route climbs the face (not the arete) of the shady side of the detached tower. Oddly, I found the crux to be routefinding. Miro seems to like having a small run to the anchors, and on this route it was difficult for me to tell whether to go left or right around a small bulge at the top. (beta: you go left). Scope it carefully from the ground or adjacent routes, and the flash could be easily had if you're decent at the grade. Holds are good, clean, and non-tweaky....[more] Browse More Classics in International

This is a 800meter walk from the small village of Sveta Nedilja following a trail heading east along the seashore. Ferries run from Split to Statigrad and Jelsa. From Jelsa there are small busses to Sveta Nedilja twice per day. Otherwise taxis do the trip for around $45.
This "mini Thailand" has 100 bolted routes here. Fun and steep climbing on great stone, mostly 5.9-5.12. Routes are long but many have anchors at different heights, so 80m rope is not a must. Plus there is some fun DWS. Definitely worth the trip if you are already in Croatia. Miro, the owner, rents rooms on the property with cooking facilities. Highly recommended for the quality of the climbing and quality if the atmosphere Miro has created here.
