Rock climbing

Pri Čiginju

This highly recommended climbing destination is located in a peaceful environment in the shade of a forest. It is difficult to spot it from the road, but once you lay your eyes on the wall, you will be pleasantly surprised. The climbing area offers first-class white limestone, which resembles the walls in Paklenica or Vipava.

How to get there:
If you come from Kobarid, turn towards Nova Gorica at a large roundabout before Tolmin. Carry on past Volče hamlet and after that pay attention to a left branch towards Kozarišče (after a hairpin turn outside the village). Then follow a narrow asphalt road past a smaller crossroad (a road to Terra d.o.o. company goes to the left). About 200 meters away from there, you will spot a small tree on your right. Park by the side of the road.

Access:
From the parking lot head towards the forest edge across a field and you will come to the foot of the wall in about 5 minutes.

Best time for climbing:
Due to the low altitude, it is possible to climb throughout the year. It is best to go in spring or autumn, but forest slovenia sport climbing guideprovides nice shade also on hot summer days.

Orientation of the wall:
The climbing area faces south-west.

Warning: Parking in front of the Terra d.o.o. company building is forbidden!

This wonderfully equipped climbing area will give most pleasure to those who favor plates. More 'technical' routes with minimal handholds prevail. The rock is excellent and offers really good climbing. Sector A is partly abandoned and less popular compared to sector B. After heavy rain and in early spring some routes can be a bit wet.
