Getting there

This crag is located near the village Selca. You will reach the village by driving from Starigrad town towards Hvar and taking a left turn before you reach Starigrad ferry port. Check out the interactive map.

Approach

Just as you pass Selca, you will see some parking spots on the left side of the road. Park there and go up to the crag by a narrow unmarked route through the bushes.

Characteristics

It is currently equipped with around 20 sport routes and has good potential for more bolting. It is north faced so the best season for climbing would be spring and summer, but due to the mild climate on the island, climbing is possible all through the year.

    We wanted to go climbing in July, but we’re warrned locals because of the snakes. We were with kids, so we decided no to go. What is the real snake danger. Is it OK fo the children?

    Hi Boryto. Like every other mountain in the world, you can also find snakes here. Croatia hosts Vipera snakes so please do not attack them and be careful when walking. But this applies to all climbing areas I have visited around the world so nothing different.
