Drill & Chill Climbing And Highlining Festival 2019
We welcome you all to ten days of bolting, climbing, highlining, nature and nights around the fire - A celebration of an international climbing and highlining culture and the spirit of vertical pioneering.
In 2015 we created the Drill & Chill Climbing and Highlining Festival to playfully combat the status quo. The festival is organized by Climbing club Extreme Banja Luka and is conceived around the idea of connecting climbers, highliners and outdoor enthusiasts from Western Europe, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region through the transfer of knowledge and experiences.
We invite you to be guests in our backyard and play with us. Here, we will set up camp for 10 days, work, climb, slackline, hang out, participate in various workshops, watch movies, party, enjoy traditional food and drinks or just chill in hammocks.
If you like to travel and climb off the beaten paths, Bosnia and Herzegovina offers a diverse landscape of forested mountains and an abundance of untamed limestone.
