ZOF SPORTS CLIMBING 23.09.2023 - 20 € Apply for this event  

Saturday 23.09. 14:00 h Željina litica - St Michael fortress, Preko, Island Ugljan

The competition in sports climbing will be held on the cliff Željina, at the foot of St. Mihovil, on the island of Ugljan. This three hundred meters wide rocky barrier, with a height of 10 to 60 meters, is characterized by gray compact plates and red and yellow "shady" overhangs.

The location currently has 30 climbing routes ranging from beginner to relatively demanding. The ambience at the foot of the cliff among holm oak forests and ancient olive trees is special, and an additional charm is given by clear views of the Zadar archipelago, primarily the islands of Iz and Dugi otok.

The sport climbing competition will take place in one climbing direction. Competitors climb secured from above (so-called top rope), and the criterion for determining the position of competitors in the overall standings represents the time needed to successfully master the direction. Sport climbing has a number of positive effects: physical development of the body and the development of motor skills (endurance, flexibility, coordination, balance); improves focus, strengthens self-confidence, favors the overcoming of fear of heights.

Regardless of whether you are an experienced climber, or just a beginner who will try this attractive outdoor discipline for the first time, you will enjoy the beautiful ambience and untouched nature of the island of Ugljan!

Just before the sports climbing competition, a free climbing workshop will be held, so you can practice a little or try this interesting sports discipline for the first time.
