The drive from the town of Hvar to the climbing at CliffBase can take an hour if you stick to paved roads, or about 45 minutes if you take the dirt road that goes from the south (Hvar town) side of the tunnel directly to Sveta Nedilja (the town next to CliffBase). The dirt road is well-traveled, well-maintained, easy to pass other cars on, and was fine for our rented passenger car.
