The Široka peč Ridge is one of the greatest faces in the Julian Alps. This magnificent fortress features an exposed ridge shaped as a true saw consisting of seven rock towers. When we traverse the Široka peč Ridge we climb all of these towers. The traverse is a demanding tour, because the approach to the Amphitheater and the ascent of the easternmost rock tower poses a climbing challenge of its own. The finishing traverse across the ridge to the Dovški križ Mountain is like a cherry on top of an inspiring climbing experience.
