🚵‍♀️ Nova staza za bicikle u Livno pokraj rijeke Sturbe
📈 COVID19 je u 2020. godini potakao eksploziju biciklizma. U sklopu projekta Nasljeđe planinskog krajolika a kroz lokalnu inicijativu, naši vodiči iz Livna su produžili biciklističku stazu u blizini rijeke Sturbe.
Veliko hvala Marinu Mamuzi i Continental Adventure.

News from Romanija!
Congratulations to Igor Milošev and Damir Lukšić who designed and realized the ferrata on Crvene Stijene in one of Bosnia and Herzegovinas oldest (trad) climbing area Romanija, behind Sarajevo/Pale.
The ferata is rated B/C and 350 m long with a vertical difference of 160 m. It contains 4 vertical sections of up to 30m and the highlight – a cable bridge suspending between 2 walls. The distances between the steps are not too long, so it’s equally suitable for beginners as well as more experienced hikers and mountaineers.
It is truly a best practice example – A great diverse line, it is well marked, with an info table and gold-standard materials. The elements are made up of 12mm cables which is DIN standard for Via ferratas. All steps and handrails are made of 16 mm galvanized steel.
If you are in the area, enjoy this safe and exciting new addition to BiH mountaineering

Vijesti sa Romanije!
Čestitamo @Igor Milošev i Damir Lukšić koji su osmislili i realizirali feratu na Crvenim stijenama.
Ferata je ocijenjena B / C i dugačka je 350 m s vertikalnom razlikom od 160 m. Sadrži 4 vertikalna presjeka do 30 metara i vrhunac – kablovski most ovješen između 2 zida. Udaljenost između stepenica nije predugačka, pa je podjednako pogodna za početnike, Kao i iskusnije planinare.
To je zaista primjer najbolje prakse – sjajna raznolika linija, dobro je označena, sa info tablicom i zlatnim standardnim materijalima. Elementi su sastavljeni od 12 mm kablova što je DIN standard za Via ferrata. Sve stepenice i rukohvati izrađeni su od pocinčanog čelika 16 mm.
Ako ste u tom području, uživajte u ovom sigurnom i uzbudljivom novom dodatku bh. Planinarstvu

We’ll restore the ecosystem of climbing areas & minimize climbers ecological impact:
🌲Planting 1000 trees
🦅 Bird protection system
♻️ Garbage collection action
🚏 Building & marking trails to combat erosion

Project description:

The project is about restoring Climbing areas in Bosnia & Herzegovina and minimizing the ecological impact of climbing

Project description:

Krajina area is home to a rich collection of different ecosystems such as canyons, valleys, hills, mountains, meadows, rocky cliffs etc.

The main focus of the project is the climbing sites which are threatened by increasing number of visits by climbers following the publishing of a local climbing guidebook. Lack of paths and access to crags has led to destruction of habitat, including the removal of trees, moving of boulders, damage to the fragile vegetation and nesting birds on the rock faces, lack of designated BBQ and open fire areas which has led to uncontrolled wildfire and the leaving of litter, much of it plastic.

Working with local climbing groups and other visitors, this project aims to educate visitors and locals about their behaviour in the wild, and to protect wildlife through the installation of signs to inform climbers to avoid nesting birds, planting 1000 trees, collecting the trash along 15km of approach path, and developing more obvious, fixed trails.

Sad news from the Bosnia and Herzegovinian climbing community / Tužne vijesti za BiH penjanje

We still can’t believe Armin Gazić aka Mućak, one of the best alpinists & climbers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, a good friend and more importantly a great person left us yesterday. How weird to write about him in the past tense?

He will be remembered as one of those who was always looking for adventures and who pushed the boundaries through these adventures.

He did it all with a smile and great pleasure. He motivated us all to climb higher and harder, to hike longer and more passionately, to dream and to live life fully. His many ascents will be remembered, and he will always be there with us.

Mućak, may you rest in peace and see you in the mountains of the afterlife!

Još uvijek ne možemo da vjerujemo da nas je juče napustio Armin Gazić zvani Mućak , jedan od najboljih BiH alpinista i penjača, dobar prijatelj i čovjek.

Kako o njemu pisati u prošlom vremenu? Bio je jedan od onih koji su uvijek išli u susret avanturi i koji su kroz tu avanturu pomjerali granice. Radio je sve to sa osmjehom i velikim zadovoljstvom. Sve nas je motivisao da penjemo više i teže, da planinarimo duže i strastvenije, da sanjamo snove i da živimo život.

Njegovi brojni usponi ostaće zapamćeni, a on će uvijek biti tu sa nama. Mućak, neka ti je laka zemlja i vidimo se na planinama nebeskim!
