2. About 10 minutes’ drive from Bled in the direction towards Vintgar Gorge there is a village Gorje with a small but very nice climbing area appropriate for beginner and intermediate levels. The crags have an explicitly local character with the majority of the routes being in the easier grades. You can park by the road, just next to the climbing spot. There is a nice shadow on the wall in the afternoon which is very enjoyable especially in the summer time.

3. The crag below the village Bodešče is situated in a quiet and easily accessible place along the Sava River. However it is necessary to get used to the vertical slabs of good rock and the usual upside down handholds. It requires more than just strength to climb high. Great for training technical skills and footwork. Not recommended for total beginners but rather for the intermediate-advanced level climbers. After the rain, the wall dries quickly.
