Mišja peč

In Mišja peč or "little mouse", as it is affectionately known among climbers, the toughest routes in Slovenia are concentrated. The first Slovene route with a grade 9a ("Martin Krpan"), which Jure Golob climbed in 2001, was 'born' here. Tadej Slabe and Srečo Rehberger, who raised the difficulty of climbing to unimaginable heights, interchanged the winning podium in their time. Alongside them Silvo Karo, Erik Švab, Luka Zazvonil and Mitja Peternelj were equipping the routes. Over all, we can say that Mišja peč is one of Slovenia’s most visited climbing areas (even on a European scale) and days with empty parking lot below the "little mouse" are very hard to find.

Route height: 7 - 42 m

How to get there:
We leave the motorway 'Ljubljana– Koper' at exit Črni Kal, then turn left towards Gabrovica at the first crossroad. After two kilometers, at the sign board for village Osp, we turn right onto a dirt road, which leads us to a parking lot shortly.

Access:
From the parking lot we follow a well traced path that takes us to the wall in 5 minutes.

Best time for climbing:
It is most pleasant during the early spring, late autumn or on sunny winter days without wind. Although it is hellishly hot during summer in the central part, it is possible to climb in the right part in the morning until the sun shines onto the wall, and in the left part in the afternoon.

The central part is oriented towards SW, the left part of the wall faces SE and the right one towards NW.

Overhanging rock formations of all possible shapes and sizes are a trademark of this climbing area. Overcoming the vertical on the striking overhangs demands extremely flexible climbing moves. The routes are constantly difficult, up to 40 meters long in the central part (80 m rope!), and hence they require a lot of strength and stamina. In the left and right part of the crag it is also possible to find some easier routes, which will be enjoyable for the less skilled climbers.
