Description:

This is one of the few bolted alpine routes in Slovenia. Long run outs between protection points means the leader is always in a no fall situation. The rock is solid and the climbing easy. It is a good introduction to long alpine climbing. There is not much danger from rock fall.

Descent Options:

3 hour hike down to the car. First hour consists of hiking down a very difficult marked trail along the ridge. After leaving the ridge the hiking trail enters a forest and it is easy the rest of the way down.

4 out of 5 stars long alpine climb in Slovenia

took 6 hours to do 18 pitches, route-finding was okay, there were not always anchors, but you could belay from a bolt backed up with trad gear. beautiful climb in best weather.

4 out of 5 stars Nice easy alpine route

Only needed 5 alpine quick draws and .3-1 sized cams. No need to take nuts or hexes.
