Kamena vrata

Kamena vrata

 /  / Kamena vrata

At the initiative of the Buzet tourist association Kamena vrata, a nice crag was equipped for belay slaves, beginners and climbers seeking easy going routes. Then Klemen Bečan dropped by and the area quickly got some harder routes. But of course, you should come here mainly with a desire to enjoy yourself or to make your first steps in the vertical world.


Drive out of Buzet in the direction of Istarske toplice (Motovun) and after a few kilometers you will enter a canyon, which is “hugged” by rocky gates, well known in these parts as Kamena vrata – the crag is on your right. Park on the left side on the banks of the Mirna river, carefully cross the road and you will be at the crag. The access is at times steep and sandy, so take it slow as to avoid a bruising or two.


The crag is on a sunny place, which rules out the summer, when you will be drenched in sweat, but since it has many corners and it lies in a canyon, you can find some shade in the transitional period or in the afternoon. Rain will chase you away.


No doubt about it – the rock is great. The routes are new, the bolts are flawless and perfectly bolted. Take care of the children, as the road below can be very busy!

Most people will come here for easy, vertical or slabby routes with nice holds, where even the basic knowledge of foot technique is adequate. Other harder routes have usually tough cruxes, so don‘t underestimate them – but better climbers can show the beginners how to milk a tufa or two. Most routes are short, apart from the ones on the right. They are decently bolted, so bring 10-12 quickdraws. For harder and longer routes on the right side bring at least 70 meters long rope and around 16 quickdraws.
