Croatian Mountaineering Society Snijeznica organizes traditional climb on Snijeznica, mountain in Konavle which has several peaks above 1000 metres in height. The highest is Ilija's peak at 1234 metres above sea level. The event will be held two days after the International Women's Day, on Saturday, March 10th and it's called ''100 women at Snijeznica''.
Climbing Snijeznica for the International Women's Day proved to be really popular in the last couple of years. The gathering of participants is at 8:40 am in the center of Kuna Konavoska (near the info table about Snijeznica). At 9 am, after getting acquainted with the guides, the crowd will go uphill. There is about two hours walk on the mountaineering macadam path up to the top. During the climbing, two shorter breaks of 10 minutes will be made. At the top there will be a longer pause (depending on the weather conditions).
When it comes to returning, it’s good to know that you will not take the same path like uphill. It’s planned to go on the eastern side, to the meadows where you can mingle with other participants. Climbing, going down and socializing will end until 4 pm, before sunset.
When it comes to climbing, there are some rules. Solid shoes are a must, you should wear layered clothing, sun / wind / rain protection and take a backpack with chocolate, something to eat and 1.5 liter of water.
In case of unusual weather conditions, the organizer also reserves the right to cancel the climb for safety reasons.
