About Kotečnik:

The crag is one of the best (and most visited) in Slovenia, second MAYBE only to Osp/Misja pec. At the last count the total number of established routes was 269 and the area is still developing.

It can be climbed in all seasons, though can be really cold and hard to reach in winter. Forest offers shade and because of altitude its not too hot in the summer. During the winter when trees loose their leaves sun shines on the rock and its quite berable, especially in the section of "trapez" wich is also usually too hot to climb in summer because of its orientation (south facing). You need at least a 60m rope for some routes (especially in section Pisani svet), 70m is better).

Nearest town or city: Celje

Leave Celje in the direction for Ljubljana, then turn left after Levec at the second traffic lights, drive straight through Petrovce and Liboje past a quarry and keep on the main (not too wide by this point, so dont be frightened, but still tarmac) road untill you see a large sign by the road (the sigh has a roof) for kotečnik. You park there and continue up the hill on a sand paved road for about 15min. Be polite to the Farmer AND PARK AT SIGN; NOT SOMEWHERE UP THE HILL!!! youll just have to walk those 15 minutes. its worth it. you can easily camp in the section "oboki" and dont even need a tent.

the coordinates of the crag are the coordinates of the main parking lot i have kindof got from google earth and are probably not really accurate.


Kotečnik has a new access trail. Head up the gravel road from the parking lot as usual and then at the last turn of the road head straight up on the new path. Dont worry, its marked. Access to sector Trapez is form anothe parking a bit more up the asphalt road.
