Mt Subra is the most imposing crag of the Mt Orjen massif, and it can be said, of the whole massif of the Dinarides along the Adriatic coast. It rises in the shape of a giant amphitheatre in which the layers of limestone are stacked one atop another. Along the vertical the layers are intersected with a series of gullies and chimneys. The crag is up to 300m high. The lines in Mt Subra were climbed only as late as in 2005 by the Slovenian alpinists headed by Mr Stanko Mihev, and this way we want to thank him very much for providing us with the information on routes.
How to Get There:
Subra Amphitheatre can be reached most easily along the marked mountain trail from Vrbanj, which can be approached along the travel route from Herceg Novi(Meljine ) through Kruševice - about 15 kms. From Vrbanj the trail follows the macadam road (suitable for terrain vehicles) over Rujište and Meki do to Žukovica. From Žukovica to the base of the rock - about 40-minute hike .
Where to Sleep:
The best place for making camp is in Žukovica, both because of the water found nearby and the terrain configuration. Due to a stony terrain there are no conditions for pitching the tents at the base of the rock.
Unlike the rocks of Reovačka Greda the largest crags in the Subra Amphitheatre have a north-western orientation which enables climbing during the summer months, too.©
