Pecka Rock Climbing Festival 18 - 20 May 2018

12 April 2018

May is traditionally reserved for the oldest sports climbing festival in B&H. This year too we continue with the recipe for amazing climbing fun spiced with some of the best sports climbing routes in B&H, at a unique location.

This year, the festival will take place from 18th – 20th of May. As in the previous years, you can expect some fantastic climbing complemented by the accompanying content that makes this festival so special. All of those who have been our guests over the past years know what we are talking about, and those who will visit Pecka for the first time can experience the kingdom of the pockets on the walls, fantastic local food, highline, an unforgettable Forest party and a forest cinema. More than 120 routes, of different styles and difficulties, with lengths between 15 and 35 meters await you.

The rules are the same as in the past years: Come, climb and have fun :) Still, we have something for those with a competitive spirit. For those that climb the most routes and the most difficult route, we prepared symbolic prizes.

All visitors that pay a fee of 15 EUR will get a printed guidebook, and this year your outdoor climbing style will be completed with a Pecka Rock Climbing shirt. Trust us, they look great. :)

More information about the climbing area and the routes can be obtained from the organisers and the staff at the festival. This year too, we present the Pecka Forest Cinema, as well as Pecka Forest Party in the mystical atmosphere of Pecka's groves :)

To all those who wish to stay longer at Pecka, we recommend Visitor center Pecka, which organizes the Pecka Outdoor Festival the following weekend.

See you!

How to get to the festival?

The climbing area Pecka is located in the municipality of Mrkonjić Grad, near Baraći village, located on the road Mrkonjić Grad – Glamoč. From Baraći you only need to follow the signs to the resort Ubovića Brdo/Nikoletići and climbing Pecka (see the camp site marked on Google Maps).
 

If coming from the north/Banja Luka.

Check the route marked on Google Maps.

The easiest (and most beautiful) way is to travel directly south the M16 regional road from Banja Luka, through canyon Tijesno, towards Jajce and later turn right in the direction of Mrkonjić Grad. In Mrkonjić Grad you need to turn towards Ribnik/Ključ and when you cross the overpass (just after the crossroads) drive for about 8 km to the turnoff for Glamoč. At this juncture there is a gas station. From that turn, drive straight (pass near the resort and eco zone Zelenkovac), to the village Baraći. There you should turn right (signpost Pecka) and then follow the signs for the last 7 km to Ubovića Brdo/Nikoletići.

It is also possible to travel from Banja Luka to Baraći by bus that goes to Glamoč. From there you can go on foot or call someone from the organizers to come and get you. Another option, for those who want a little adventure, is to go to Mrkonjić Grad, with relatively frequent buses, and from there hitchhike to Baraći.
 

If coming from the south (Sarajevo, Mostar).

The easiest way is to use the regional road M16 towards Jajce. In Jajce, turn left towards Mrkonjić Grad and Jezero. Near Jezero, turn left again towards the Šipovo. You need to go through Šipovo and continue to Baraći. In Baraći turn left and after about 20 meters you will reach the turn to Pecka/Ubovića Brdo. From there follow the route as described above.
 

From abroad.

For those who live relatively close to the north of B&H, it is best to go by car via Zagreb and/or Gradiška to Banja Luka, and then follow the instructions above. Or travel by public transport to Zagreb and then by bus or train to Banja Luka. After that, follow the instructions above.

If coming from the south (Dalmatia, Montenegro, Macedonia...), look VIA MICHELIN and enter the destination Baraći.

For those who live further on - the easiest way is to fly to Zagreb, Tuzla or Belgrade (Wizzair, Germanwings, Ryanair, Easyjet, etc.). Then a bus or train to Banja Luka. From Banja Luka to use public transport as described above.

We can provide transportation from BL with prior notice of at least four days before the beginning of the festival. It is possible that fuel costs will be charged, so contact us beforehand in order to make arrangements.
 

Note:

- Bring your own quickdraws, they will not be clipped in routes. 

- All competitors are encouraged to use helmets while climbing and belaying.

- Climbing with top rope, shall be punished by whipping :)

- If you want to order something from the local food (kajmak!!!, milk, bread, pies, rakija...) it is recommended to contact us in advance to leave our hosts enough time to prepare, and to avoid a long wait.

"Hello neighbour" project got started

19 August 2016

Penjački klub Extreme, uz velikodušnu podršku Američke ambasade u Sarajevu, je počeo sa realizacijom projekta pod nazivom "Hello neighbour". Projekat ima za cilj da kroz penjanje poveže mlade geografski bliskih zajednice koji do sada nisu imali priliku da međusobno sarađuju. Banja Luka kao razvijeni penjački centar će sarađivati sa Bihaćem i Ključem, dok će Sarajevo raditi sa Goraždem i Fočom

Prva aktivnost će se održati za vikend 20-21.08.2016. godine u Sarajevu gdje će mladi iz Goražde i Foča učestvovati na radionici o penjanju i toleranciji, te će prvi dan imati priliku da penju na vještačkoj stijeni. Drugi dan je rezervisan za posjetu i penjanje na penjalištu Dariva.

Treba napomenuti i to da će se tokom prvog dana (20.08.2016.) u 19h u Međunarodnom centru za djecu i omladinu održati premijera Drill and Chill Festival 2015 filma, pozivamo sve zainteresovane da nam se pridruže. Evo i najave za pomenuti film:

Daljnje aktivnosti obuhvataju sličnu radionicu u Banjoj Luci, te zajedničko uređenje dva penjališta, jedno u Ključu i drugo u Foči. Planirana je i posjeta učesnika Drill and Chill Festivalu koji se ove godine održava od 08.-18.09.2016. godine u kanjonu Tijesno.

Pratite nas i dalje i budite u toku!
