Welcome to the island of Hvar
Hvar has beautiful cliffs along the beaches, with clear blue water and very good quality sea cliffs. The beauty of nature is one of the unique and unforgettable climbing holidays for every climber. We had not visited this magical island before for many years, but we were very impressed by the beauty and such nice climbing that Hvar offers. Some of the beaches have cliffs by the sea, some are in the hills and have a wonderful view of it. In summer you can enjoy adventure climbing, known as DWS. We visited Hvar in November and also for New Year and were surprised by how warm the weather can be, and very little rainfall. On our autumn visit, we added another wonderful climbing area, Lučišče (2021), with some incredibly difficult and drippy routes; you can read a post describing the routes on our blog.
Hvar is not only a bathing destination, but a wonderful climbing and a bit adventurous destination. And every year new routes are created. That's why most of the routes are still very sharp and not slick.
The climbing areas on the island are Sveta Nedelja, Vela Stiniva, Milna, Pokrivenik, Stranice, Podstine, DWS, and Lucišče. The guide can be found on 27crags or hvarclimbing.com. The hard, sharp orange and grey limestone is a typical Hvar rock with technical directions on overhangs and plateaus. There are many beginner routes in Milna, Podstine, and Sveta Nedelja and most of the walls face the sun. For the strongest climbers, we have developed a new sector, Lučišče, for 2021, so first ascents await them.

Day 2: Having an easy start with lots of easy routes for warming up the body and getting used to the rock.
Day 3: Climbing on vertical routes. Concentrating more on on-sight climbing technique and mental training – discuss how to approach on-sight, visualization, preparation, analysis, learning where to clip, resting exercise, learning commitment, and reading the route.
Day 4: Climbing hard routes. You will learn how to climb more challenging routes with the redpoint approach step by step. You will know how to do visualization for the redpoint, which is part of mental coaching. The red point is not only climbing but also falling coaching. It is part of the game and learning process for gaining better performance in the working route, even when we are pumped to get that 100% out of our bodies.
Day 5: Rest day is part of training so we might take one as well. Not necessary to have a complete rest day; we might still do some running and yoga in the morning and swimming or easy climbing in the afternoon. It also depends on the group and their needs and wishes. One of the rest day activities is climbing without hands or using fewer hands, toprope of course. These skills are excellent for learning how to be efficient, improving climbing techniques for more challenging routes, and having fun.
Day 6: Climbing days for on-sight attempt with repetition if necessary. You will try to put the mental knowledge in the climbing and try hard.
Day 7: We will return to your redpoint project to test your head and power. You are learning how to mentally prepare for sending the projects and the proper mindset for this day. And also, not only is sending a reward, but the process should be the goal that motivates us.
Day 8: The final day or more relaxed day for you will be climbing without pressure from us. You choose whatever you wish that day to climb. You must enjoy and try to climb as much as your head and muscles let you. We can repeat your projects, foot and hand technique, mental coaching, falling practice, or hang out in climbing crags and have fun with no stress.
