The code of conduct in and around rocks and climbing ethics is based on a sound, reasonable approach by everyone of the individual both towards climbing and towards the environment. The code is present everywhere in the world, so it is necessary in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in order to prevent the emergence of certain problems and consequences that they arise as a product of an increasing number of people in nature, under rocks.

In particular, problems with private property under or when accessing rocks, pollution access to the space under the rock, the attitude towards animals (birds) and plants rare species) etc.

We hope that this code of conduct and ethics of climbing will contribute to the development of healthy awareness and climbing culture, and that it will help make our rocks and the environment as beautiful and preserved as they are in the future today.
