Omiš

By: Boris Čujić
Country: Croatia, Region: Dalmatia, Town: Split / Spalato (Dalmatia)

One of the biggest and most interesting areas for sports climbing in southern Croatia is certainly Omiš. Located 20km south of Split and at the mouth of the river Cetina, this pleasant historical town is surrounded by large cliffs and wild canyons, offering circa 200 routes dotted around the 14 sectors with difficulties from 4a to 8b+. While most outings are single-pitch sport climbs, the great quality limestone walls also host some multi-pitch routes up to 300m.

As soon as you get to Omis you understand why it has been such a popular location for so long, and not only among climbers: the surroundings make it a haven for all types of outdoor activities including rafting and canyoning. One of the biggest advantages of Omiš is the fact that it is a great destination for families since most approaches are easy and there are plenty of routes ideal for beginners and recreational climbers.

After the climbing there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the town square from where to drink coffee and watch the climbers above, and of course there is also the beautiful Adriatic sea and its beaches.

With its spectacular views, amazing cliffs and potential for far more - such as the newest crag Perivoj developed in summer 2014 by Ivan Lisica - Omiš is an area which is well worth visiting.

GETTING THERE

Omiš is located 20km south of Split. It is easy acessible by car via the Adriatic road (Jadranska magistrala). Furthermore, Split is connected to many European citys with low-cost flights.

FOOD AND ACCOMODATION

Accommodation can easily be found in the numerous campsites and appartments everywhere ( http://tz-omis.hr/index.php?lang=en )

You can climb all year round, but the best time is spring and autumn. Although it is hot in summer is hot, many sectors are in the shade so you can climb part of the day. Winter is good, except when the strong northern Bora wind blows.
