» Big Wall Speed Climbing – PAKLENICA 2012


The Big Wall Speed Climbing is a climbing competition that has taken place in Velika Paklenica canyon since 2000. This is combination of speed climbing and big wall climbing and the first competition of its kind in the world. It comprises a roped alpine ascent following all the normal climbing rules (clipping all the protections, not allowed to climb simultaneously, ascend with alternate leaders, etc.) but in the shortest time possible.
