Parking, from which it takes about 20 minutes to reach the wall is located below the mountain pass TRESKAVAC, this is about ten miles away from Baška.
There is a lot of easy and medium-heavy directions, so that the climbing is ideal for beginners and less experienced. But of course there is as well a place for experts, who can find something more challenging. In sector A walls are short and intense. Otherwise, the directions are as long as thirty meters.Portafortuna has 61 directions divided into four sectors.
Belove stijene climbing area
The latest addition to Baška’s outdoor activities is the Belove stijene climbing area. It has not been entirely explored yet, and offers plenty of choice in terms of directions and day-long activities against the backdrop of an incredible scenery which is sure to make the experience truly memorable.
Climbing is possible throughout the day, even on the hottest days, thanks to differently facing walls which are cooled by the help of the afternoon breeze which likes to blow in the Baščanska valley. However, it is smart to be attentive in the hottest days and go on the trail early in the morning, in order to avoid the scorching sun, which tends to be a bit unpleasant at the half-hour walk up toward the walls.
