Mostly Sport

Long/Lat: 13.861056, 45.571892

Description:

A part of Karst edge, this solid limestone wall is one of the most popular climbing spots in Slovenia for a serious sport climber. A great variety of routes opens up above 6b level, many of them offering extensions to 35-40m of strenuous climbing. Easier routes will have to be scouted out, but they are there. There is also a good selection of 90-150m sport multipitches.

Access Issues:

Do not park your car in the village or camp under the wall, locals will not appreciate it. There's a camp in the village and parking place for climbers near it. There's a small fee for parking.

If you want to climb in the right sector of the big wall (Velika stena - desno), check in the camp Vovk or with local climbers if the area is open for climbing.

Where To Stay:

There's a camp Vovk in the SW part of the village, open throughout the year.

History:

This area was developing simultaneously with sport climbing itself. First ascents were aided in '70s, but it wasn't until mid '80s that free climbing got it's validation as a serious activity in Osp. In 1988, Yugoslav sport climbing championship was held here, and some of the (chipped) routes are still here for you to try. In '90s, climbers bolted last gaps in Osp and the spotlight turned to Mišja peč. It's not until recent years that top climbers started considering the roof under the Big wall as climbable. Today there are quite a few 9a-9b (open if there's no red strip in the first bolt) projects waiting to be climbed.

Long/Lat: 13.882550, 45.550757

Unique Features And Strengths:

The whole climbing area faces towards south-west., lots of easier/beginner lines.

Description:

Slovenia’s second largest climbing area is situated just a few kilometers from the coast and very near to two other superb climbing areas: Osp and Mišja peč. It has 275 modernly equipped routes that are stretched along a wide crag (500 meters). The routes will be fun both for beginners and experienced climbers and the difficulty range is very diverse, which makes the crag very popular. The place is sunny, family-friendly, has a Mediterranean 'smell' and gorgeous views on the Trieste Gulf and Koper outskirts. Due to the sunny position near the coast it is possible to climb in all seasons.

Approach:

You can get to the climbing area in two ways:

  1. Leave the motorway 'Ljubljana - Koper' on exit Kastelec and follow the signposts towards Podgorje. At the first crossroad go straight, at the second one go left and then after about 1.5 km turn right towards Črnotiče. Turn right after 700 meters (at a small electric power transformer) and continue on a dirt road for about 1 km (parking lot A).

  2. Leave the motorway 'Ljubljana - Koper' on exit Črni Kal. At the second (bigger) crossroad turn left uphill towards Kozina and Črni Kal. After the second sharp curve (before a bus stop) turn sharply to the right into the village of Črni Kal. Go around a church tower on a narrow road, then keep right (a wooden signpost) and an asphalt road will take you to the parking lot B shortly.

Access: From the parking lot A follow the descending dirt road for about 200 meters; at a large rock turn left on a well traced path that brings you to the sector 'Turški stolp'. Access from parking lot B is more convenient for sectors G and H (Sidarta, Peskovnik, Viagra). Follow a dirt road from the parking lot for around 100 meters and you will notice a well traced path on the left. There are 5 more minutes to the crag.

Where To Stay:

Camping at Osp village.

Ethic:

No chipping, park your cars so that you do not hinder local traffic!

Long/Lat: 13.881422, 45.551618

Description:

Always cool Soča river and short, soft sheep-mown grass at the feet of boulders that rolled down the slopes of picturesque valley sometime in the past make for one of the most relaxing, cozy and beautiful climbing spots in Slovenia. Thesport routes are short and on the easier side, however if you really want to strain yourself, there are plenty of boulder problems available. After you nail a hard one, pet the donkey to relax your forearms!

Access Issues:

This is private land. Absolutely no littering and try to keep the noise down, too. After crossing the bridge you'll pass by neighbour's house and through a gate - do not forget to close it.

Approach:

Park just after the tunnel on the right side of the road (going from Vršič pass towards Bovec). Cross the road and then the bridge, go left through the gate and find your way uphill.

Where To Stay:

Camping and other lodging options are available 10 minute drive north towards Vršič pass.
