Out of all extreme sports, rafting (unfortunately only during the summer) and recreational climbing have grown the most in the Omis area. Whether you’re an experienced climber or a beginner, you can find your place here, from the easiest slopes to previously unclimbed ridges. Rock-climbing is actually the recreational activity with the greatest potential in the Omis area. All sectors are nearby and easily accessible. You can chose to climb in the shade or on sunny cliff-sides. Omis residents often catch their breath as they observe bold young men and women scaling the high vertical cliffs which embrace this town at the mouth of the Cetina with only the strength of their hands and feet.
Thanks to the diverse positions of the cliffs, which were cut by the powerful river on its course to the sea, climbing is a year-round activity here. This is why, in addition to the twenty or so active members of the local Malduk Climbing Club, these cliffs are more frequently being visited by the best Croatian and European climbers. Recently members of the Zagreb-based club Svarog, as well as Slovenes, Italians and, of course, Split natives were all in Omis for a two-week training session. They didn’t restrict themselves to the existing courses, as they made about ten new ones, so that Omis now has a total of 46 equipped recreational courses, placing it among the top Croatian climbing sites. But this is only a scratch on the surface of the town’s cliffs, whose potential is about a hundred times greater. Both seasoned European rock-climbers and members of the Malduk Club say Omis will soon become not only a Croatian, but a general European climbing center: “the Croatian Chamoneux.”
