Multi-pitch sport climbing in Paklenica

Multi-pitch sport climbing is where Paklenica really stands out. Over 150 bolted routes of all difficulties span vertical walls of up to 350 meters high! When we're ready for a brake from loose trad routes in Slovenian Alps, we come to Paklenica. There's simply no better place to get some serious air beneath you by simply following a bolt ladder. :) From time to time, however, we also endulge ourselves in a slice of Paklenica's trad cake.
Take a look at some pictures taken August 2010. Although we had tons of bolted routes to choose from we decided, just for fun, to take a shot at an unexplored part of the Veliki Ćuk wall. We started climbing in trad style. Chances were high that we would stumble upon some bolted route in the upper part and so it did turn out that we joined the Paparazzi route (6b in the guidebook but 6a+ is more reallistic) which we then followed to the top.
You can search for trips to "Velebit, Velika Paklenica" to get a better view of what's out there.
