Description 

Near the Italian border you will find the picturesque Mediterranean village of Osp. Just above the village you will find the first rock climbing crag, suited almost over the roofs of some of the houses in Osp.
After a short walk you reach the rest of the Osp area. About 500 metres from the village you will find Misja Pec, well established as one of the best crags for rock climbers that are looking for steep quality Limestone routes. Misja Pec offers about 60 routes above 8a, and among the 175 routes only a handfull is easy.
In the village you will find a nice camping ground and if you fly to Trieste you will reach Osp in an hour.
About 5 kilometres from Osp another crag, Crni Kal, offers nice rock climbing on good rock. It has a pleasant sheltered position, flat ground at the foot and a wide view of the hillside of the Istria and of the Gulf of Trieste. This crag is a nice place for families with children.
All together these three areas offers 600 routes. Suited near the beach, with several towns in half an hours distance and with a lot of things to see as caves, castle's and nature, you will not
get bored.
It is possible to climb during the whole year though November to February could be cold and wet.

Featured Route For Osp
The route goes up the right angling feature straight above the farthest right chimney on the house.  Up that ramp then straight up in between two trees above it...

This is the easiest way to the top of this wall, so it was the obvious choice for us. The guide book shows the route starting on a ledge 100 feet up. Well it's only about 5.4, but there are no bolts. Everything is bolted in Europe right? We won't need any gear. Anyway, you might want a little for this section... Pitch 2) heads up a right angling ramp above that ledge. 5.7ish belay after 100 feet.

For those coming without car, there is a small bus (Mon-Fri) from Koper to Osp. Osp has camping, one restaurant that also rents rooms.
Great climbing even for those who aren't leading 5.13. Enough good 5.10-11 to keep you happy for a few days. Plus Črni Kal is 3 miles away, with lots of moderates.
