Posted: 28th February 2013 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

After a snowy week, Krk island is slowly getting into the spring mode. So does Baska and crags around. This weekend can be the first warm one and also great for climbing.

Newrouters in action!

Posted: 27th March 2012 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

Dear climbers, for the next 14 days there may be some increased bolting activities at our crags, as two teams came all the way from Germany to open some new lines. Please, when you see somebody drilling holes and cleaning the rock up on the wall above you, be careful not to stay directly in a drop zone. It can be dangerous! Thanks!!

Camp Mali, good place for climbers :)

Posted: 16th May 2011 by Tomaž K in In General, In Town, On The Rocks

This weekend, Baška was full of climbers again! Also due to the group of climbers gathered by Urban Roof climbing school (Ljubljana, Slovenia). For some of them it was the first time to taste the real rock, while some were already climbing 6c on-sight . They fully explored Portafortuna climbing area and it was only rain yesterday on the afternoon, that forced them to retreat. Beside good rock and routes, they also found a restaurant Forza to be a great choice for a hungry climber, after the day at the crag … and a small but friendly camp… Climb more …

What about grades … in Baška?

Posted: 13th May 2011 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

Wherever there is climbing, grades play a big part of it. Unfortunately! We really shouldn’t pack our climbing days into just numbers and evaluate our good times by grades. Enjoy the nature, enjoy the rock and enjoy the freedom first! Climb hard or climb easy, climb everything or whatever suits you best and use grades only as a guiding information on what you should try and what not. OK, there is a sportive challenge involved, but as a must only at the top level. Grades are also good for our personal motivation, but only until we get lost among them.… Climb more …

New topo, new crag: Belove Stene

Posted: 14th April 2011 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

We are happy to announce that topo (provisional only though) for new crag Belove Stene is ready and already published. Belove stene is a beautiful crag in a true mountainous environment. couple of kilometers from Baška. We were working on it for the last year and a half, cleaning the bases of the walls, walls, access paths … and bolting. There are 32 bolted lines in a compact limestone so-far, mainly of easier grades, but there is still a lot of room for harder ones and some projects are waiting to be climbed. The only thing that is missing are… Climb more …

The new crag is almost ready!

Posted: 8th April 2011 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

We’ll work on some final touches to the access for the new crag near Baška, this weekend. We’re also planning to add 2 or 3 new routes while there, so we should have more than 30 bolted lines there by Monday . You can expect the first draft of the new topo, with provisional grades, till the end of next week, so you could already check the area out during Easter holidays. Just so you know -> Approach takes ca. 30 minutes, what is 1/3 longer than for Portafortuna. But it is worth it!!! After all, when we are to… Climb more …

Respect the nature!

Posted: 6th February 2011 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

Looks like the season of outdoor climbing will begin soon this year and facing that, we would like to remember you about the nature. It is not that we would like to save the Earth, but let us be at least a good example. Therefore, when you go climbing outdoors, please never leave any litter behind! Always carry it back and throw away where acceptable … If you see that someone left something behind, be a good example and pick it up or ask the one to do it. Smokers be very careful!!!! Your cigarette butts are a huge fire… Climb more …

Happy 2011!

Posted: 1st January 2011 by Tomaž K in In General

Dear friends, we wish you a very sunny, environmental friendly and most of all happy year 2011. Let the good rocks, big jugs, small crimps, deep pockets, compact cracks and perfect friction be with you wherever you should climb! And don’t forget to come and enjoy our crags again. We also have a gift for you, but we still need to wrap it properly. When we do so, you’ll find it on our website. Soon, we promise.

New topo for Portafortuna!

Posted: 23rd October 2010 by Tomaž K in In General, On The Rocks

We are working on a new all in one topoguide for Baška, that would also include some new rocks. This is planned to be done by the beginning of the year 2011, ready for new season. Until than, we extracted the part about Portafortuna, so you can already download and use it. Note that this is still the working version and there may be some mistakes and layout will probably change a bit, but now all new routes are included and graded. Check it out in our topo section!

Looking for a climbing partner at our crags?

Posted: 4th September 2010 by Tomaž K in In General

Take a look at our Facebook discussion board! At the moment Martin is looking for a buddy on a rope and is waiting for him/her, fully equipped with climbing gear, in Baška until September 12th.

Web cams not working :(

Posted: 20th June 2010 by Tomaž K in In General

We noticed that webcams from Baška are offline at the moment! We hope BSwireless will be able to put them up soon.

Opened project @ Portafortuna

Posted: 19th June 2010 by Tomaž K in In General

For those that did not check our latest topo update: The project #9 at Portafortuna C sector is now open project and anyone can climb it. The route is long and spans two pitches. It follows a big crack left of the yellowish wall with holes. The hardest would be the first part but it is not expected that route would be very hard. The first, intermediate belay is placed on a small resting place, so climbing the route in one go or in two pitches doesn’t really make a difference. Enjoy and please let us know the name… Climb more …

Climbers, please help Zaliya!

Posted: 2nd June 2010 by Tomaž K in In General

This has nothing to do with Baška, but if we can help we should! Zaliya (5 years old), the daughter of well known climber Salavat Rakhmetov, was deeply injured by a rockfall at the base of a climbing area in Turkey! She is still in a coma and her family have launched a call for donations to help them pay for the huge hospital costs and a transfer to Russia. Special website was launched to collect some funds and some more than 12.000 $ was collected so far. Click here to visit the website and help if you can!
