Description

There are likely much better multi-pitch routes to do at Vipava, but this is what we did and it was an adventure! Note that the route plaque at the base of this line and the 2018 guidebook have different route names. In the 2018 guidebook, this line is "Raz Stebra," the route plaque, "Steber."

P1: Climb up the somewhat vegetated and loose rib/ridge past six or more bolts to an anchor by a dead tree (appx 45 meters; 4c/5.5 quite exciting). This pitch is old school limestone climbing and will make you appreciate modern sport climbing!

P2: Continue up the corner above the anchor to a ledge with a tree. Climb the steeper, left-facing corner above past roughly six bolts. To keep the grade reasonable, you'll need to do some tricky face climbing on the left. Belay above at an anchor (appx 30 meters; 5b/5.8 spooky).

P3: Go up and right along a ridge to the top and large, red rappel anchors (appx 15 meters; 5.4).

Descent: Rappel 30m down from the red rappel anchors to a platform built on the face. From the far side of the platform, follow the via feratta down to the base of the cliff (good fun).

Location

Drive from downtown Vipava up to Kamp Tura and park just outside the campground. Follow sign posts up to the Steber sector and once there, find the start of the route at the base of a vegetated rib. There is a small, triangular route name plaque at the start of the route.

Protection

Bring eight or so QDs and some shoulder length slings. You'll use the longer slings as you downclimb the via feratta (obviously lanyards made for via feratta travel are the best - bring them if you have them).
