The imposing Risnik sinkhole, which was created through the collapse of the ceiling over a former subterranean cavern has unique local climbing character. The crag lies in beautiful Karst surroundings and offers a good alternative to the populated crags of Črni kal and Osp. You will most definitely be alone at the crag. All the routes have been reequipped lately and also a new sector was born.


On the highway from Koper to Ljubljana take the exit Divača, then on the turnaround turn left and on the next crossing left again direction Lipica and park on the left side just after about 500 meters before the wooden sign for Risnik. From parking take the dirtpath going left until in 5 minutes you reach the wall down low.


The perfect period is from late autumn till early spring. The crag is totally sheltered from strong northern winds and is exposed directly to the sun. Better to avoid it in hot days. Also snakes can come out.


The rock in some routes can still be a bit loose, so it’s always better to wear a helmet, at least as a belayer.
