Imposing crag directly above picturesque village with quality routes of all grades good for a couple of years of climbing - what more could you ask for? Maybe a few more 8‘s and a bit smaller crowd - but that‘s nitpicking. Banje (also called Behind the village) is a playground for technical climbers with vertical routes, which are surrounded on both sides by overhangs. Babna is considered the most popular crag in the area, being just a bit harder than Črni Kal and easier than Mišja peč, with looong routes on vertical and slightly overhanging walls.
Carefully read the climbers‘ code of etiquette, and follow it everywhere! Apart from that the Osp area is especially sensitive. Do not provoke locals with unsuitable parking or behaviour, stealing fruit, leaving trash and doing anything that you wouldn‘t tolerate from others on your own garden.
In the last few years a suitable parking is always a pressing issue for climbing community who can‘t find a common ground with the villagers. The situation changes all the time, but it is always forbidden to park in the village or on side driveways. Park in the Mišja peč parking or ask in camp Vovk for alternatives.
Otherwise the approach is simple: use one of two paths uphill through the village and you will soon reach the first crag (turn right and up upon reaching the church). For Babna the path extends onwards and uphill. Use only clear, official paths.
Coming from the north, take the highway A1 to Koper (from south, take the highway A1 to Ljubliana) until the exit „Kastelec“ or the next „Crni Kal“. Then follow directions to Crni Kal, after that to Osp.
