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.

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

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.
