Buzetski kanjon

Buzetski kanjon is a diverse crag, whose widely spread sectors have one common point: they are all great! Four are set in a scenic 7 waterfalls gorge, made by the river Pivka, while the other three stand on the right and left side of the river Mirna canyon. Most routes are new and basically flawless. If you add climbing all year round, the close vicinity to romantic Buzet and the fact that the wild nature of the canyon is one of the most popular walking paths, you should ask yourself only this: what are you still doing at home?

ACCESS
Drive through Buzet direction Rijeka/Roč. When you see the Plodine supermarket on your left, take a right turn in the next intersection. In the village of Sv. Ivan keep to the right towards the Favorit brewery. You will soon get to a bridge over the Mirna. Park here! Driving the dirt allowed is forbidden and fined by Police! For sectors Befana, Slap, LIKE and Zimski turn left before the bridge while for Pengari, Đoser and Plaža turn left after. There are clear and nice paths to all the crags (10-15 minutes), though you sometimes have to cross the river.

WEATHER
In spring and autumn you can climb everywhere. Befana is best in late spring or early autumn (when it‘s nicely dry), also Slap and Đoser have some shade during the day. The Zimski sector (Winter sector), LIKE and Pengari are turned to the south and are best for winter. You can also climb in some rain – but especially Befana tends to get wet.

QUALITY
The rock is diverse, karsty, full of tufa and overall good. Only occasionally and in easy routes it can still break. All bolts are new and great. The most comfortable are Pengari and Befana, and Slap is also nice. Don‘t drag your kids to the Zimski sector or sector LIKE.

GEAR
Routes are medium and long. For the most enjoyable ones take at least 70 m rope and enough quickdraws.

ROUTES
Climbing is mostly endurance with a power crux now and then. In the Zimski sector, Đoser and in some vertical walls the climbing is more technical. The rock is fresh and quite sharp, the grades are friendly.

NOTES
This is a precious and sensitive natural area, that requires special care, but luckily climbing is still a welcome activity. Water sources in the area are protected, so spill your old motor oil and potassium cyanide somewhere else.
