Misja Pec

Misja Pec lies 500m up the road from Osp, and like its big brother, was also formed by the collapse of an underground cave system in the Karst escarpment, many millennia ago. What it lacks in scale it makes up for in severity, and is reckoned to be one of the top 5 hard crags in Europe (along with Ceuse, Siurana, Margalef and Rodellar).

Certainly in terms of people actually doing hard routes (rather than just dangling from them) I reckon that is a fair reflection. One of the shots below shows half a dozen climbers all about half way up 8-somethings. To make matters worse, quite a few of them are tiny!

With popularity comes inevitable polish, and most of the routes are showing wear and tear. The grading of the easier routes is a complete joke!
