Rock climbing

Pod Sušo

If you happen to pass Železniki and you need some 'vertical excercise', you can stop in the local climbing area Pod Sušo. In a narrow little valley, that was carved by the Selška Sora river, surprisingly many routes are drilled into a quite small crag. No wonder, because the wall offers the only proper chance for climbing in the valley. Many routes of lower difficulties were added to the initial ones in 2010.

Basic information
LocationŽelezniki, Gorenjska
Nr. of routes: 21
Difficulty: 4c / 8a+
Route height: 7 - 17 m

How to get there:
From Železniki we drive for about 5 km towards Podbrdo, where we spot a rock by the road (on the right). We turn left onto a spacious dirt parking lot.

Access:
We come by car into the direct vicinity of the wall, there is no access.

Best time for climbing:
From the second half of the spring until early autumn. During summer it is almost too hot in the middle of the day, therefore it is better to wait for shade (after 4 p.m.). You can cool off in the nearby Sora river. It is off-season during winter.

Orientation of the wall:
The wall is oriented towards S, SE.

In the left part of the wall, which was drilled first, we climb on demanding vertical plates with small handholds. In the right part the rock is more 'broken' and it offers easier climbs. The rock in the right part is cracked and crumbly in some parts, so a little caution is not redundant. As an interesting detail we can find a route with artificial handholds, which was used for warm-up before taking on more difficult routes.
