Photo Gallery: Slovenia—Climbing in Europe's Limestone Capital


In November 2017, the Climbing Magazine staff travelled to Slovenia in Europe to sample the country's climbing. While the country is small—it takes just two and half hours to drive across it—the cliffs seem infinite, like the entire country is made of limestone. In fact, the geological term "Karst" is named for the Karst Plateau in southwest Slovenia, an area that includes the world class climbing areas of Misja Pec and Osp. We clipped bolts and explored boulders up and down the country's western half and barely touched the potential. Check out the photo gallery above and then see our upcoming November issue for a full report from the trip.
