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 big overhangs! Sector D has no bolted lines yet, but some nice could be done soon. The right part of main wall, on the right of sector E, is temporarily closed for climbing, due to access and land issues. We’re working to solve this out too.

The published topo is a provisional version only.
It is still work in a progress and grades are not yet confirmed!

Many grades were given after only one climb over the route, sometimes in not ideal conditions, or after a full day of bolting. We could go very wrong, so please let us know your thoughts. When you think any of the grades could be wrong, please send us an email over the contact form. Or you can also discuss the grades on our FB page discussion board.

Please be aware, that this is a completely new area and although routes were cleaned, there are still loose stones and rocks up there! Be very careful and wear helmet all the time while under the walls or on them. All of you that wish to bolt your routes there, please read through our suggestions and expectations here: http://www.climbinbaska.com/?page_id=871.

The area is not suitable for small children! Rock is very sharp in places, so you better bring long pants for climbing :)
