thats a very impressive wall...

How tall is it, and is it possible to get to the base from dry land?

Re: thats a very impressive wall...

About 200m. From there easier slopes lead to the peak (see this photo too). There's a road ending just under the wall. This side (east) of Varássova is not so popular as the west, it only has 5-6 routes compared to 100+

Re: East face:

Better season for Varassova is spring and autumn. That being said, you can climb in the summer, thought it can get really hot some days. I was there in June, we climbed all day on the west side and got a bit sunburnt, but due to the cool sea breeze I didn’t notice it till too late… Plus you can always dip into the sea...
