Kompanj is in a way a senior crag of climbing around Buzet. It was first discovered by Austrians, followed by Croatians, Slovenians, Italians, and filled with routes of all grades. This is one of the nicest crags, as the sectors are connected, and most routes are excellent – even in the newest sectors to the left. The idyllic village of Klobasi just adds to the scenery and it is no surprise that on a nice day it can be quite crowded here (but it spreads out evenly).
Drive from Buzet towards Rijeka and turn left into Roč. Soon you will turn right for Kompanj and Krkuž. The road splits again at the cemetary. Go right and drive through the woods until you reach the village Klobasi. Park at the specially designated parking before the village. After parking take the long walk through the village and up the hill or just go straight from the parking and to the right part of the crag.
Even though that sometimes some sectors can be in shade, it is too hot in the summer, while you will also just sit under the wall if it rains. It is perfect on winter sunny days.
The rock can be loose at times – only the older routes are cleaned nicely. Crag is good for the whole family and the routes are nicely bolted. The base is not too big, but it‘s comfortable. Some upper parts to the top are not too great.
If you use the access through the village, behave yourself kindly and unobtrusive. The locals are welcoming to climbers so let‘s keep it that way.

ROUTES (from left to right)
You will need a bit of everything. Most routes are not too overhanging, so technique and endurance are mostly required. But in the harder routes your strength comes into play – especially around Rocket Max and in Olymp sector. Apart from that, Kompanj has everything – from sharp edges to tufas, from vertical to overhanging wall. Like Babna in Osp, only it‘s not as polished.
Although you can climb a lot with minimal gear, you will need at least 14 quickdraws and longer rope for some routes.
