Buzetski Kanjon

By: Boris Čujić
Country: Croatia, Region: Istria, Town: Buzet

One of the biggest climbing areas close to the town of Buzet is Buzetski kanjon (Buzet canyon) comprised of five different sectors. Orientation varies from one sector to the next meaning that climbing is possible throughout the whole year. In winter Zimski offers 22 great climbs from 6a - 8a up slabs and overhangs. The sectors Đoser and Pengari are interesting in winter, spring and autumn Đoser receives the morning sun and offers 19 routes from 6a to 8a+, mainly up vertical slabs. Pengari receives the sun a little later on and with 18 stamina climbs from 6a to 8a+ is very popular. The Befana sector faces north and is ideal therefore in summer: 26 routes from 6b to 8b+, with most 7a or harder. A further sector, Sektor Slap, offers a selection of harder routes and is still being developed.

GETTING THERE

From Buzet follow the road to Rijeka. At the OMV petrol station turn right and follow the asphalt road to the brewery (Istarska pivovara- Favorit). Continue towards the river Mirna. Cross this and immediately after bridge turn left onto a dirt road that continues parallel to the river. Follow this for approximately 1,5 km and park on the right just before the entrance to the small canyon. Continue along the road on foot. Shortly after crossing the river you will see sektor Đoser. Follow the road and you will reach another bridge. After this bridge follow the river and after circa 100 m you reach a path that leads uphill (some fixed ropes) to the rock face. 5-10 mins from the car.
