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.

Lots of undeveloped rock here, ranging from big caves the gray slabs the multi pitch and DWS. I saw alot of potential waiting the adventurous bolter, especially heading west from Sveta Nedlija on the dirt road that goes to Hvar.

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.
