This excellent crag is a great introduction to climbing in Slovenia and should not be missed out on. The single pitches are slabby or vertical on compact grey limestone, while the multi-pitches take steep lines through the massive overhang on the right.
From the Italian border Paese located to the NE of Trieste drive to Cosina and turn off south along the N10 towards Koper. After the long downhill straight and two hairpin bends turn off right to Osp. Park in the village. The obvious crag above the church is reached by following the path upwards (10 minutes). The steep Paretone is reached by walking to the bridge and taking the small path up to beneath the routes (12 minutes).
Sustained technical climbing up small edges and tufas.
FOOD AND ACCOMODATION
The camping ground in the village is open all year round.
Ospo is extremely popular with climbers from Slovenia and its neighbouring countries. If at all possible avoid Easter and All Saints.
