Osp is one of the major climbing spots of Slovenia. Just a stone throw away from Italy this small village is as laid back as it can get and a perfect climbing destination.


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.


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.


Osp is conviniently located just a few kilometers from Trieste in Italy and can easily be reached by car from there. Alternatively use highway A1 from Ljubljana in direction SW to reach it.

For a detailed description on how to reach Osp by fair means visit the Ecopoint Web-Site.


Stay at Hostel Ociski raj (local sponsor of theCrag) for €12 per person per night.

Also there's a camp Vovk in the SW part of the village, open throughout the year for camping.


Grafik zur historischen Entwicklung

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.
