The face of Sphinx hosts the major rock climbing challenge you can possibly find at Mount Triglav (2864 m), the top of Slovenia.

The Sphinx is an overhanging pillar on the mythical North Face of Mount Triglav. Only reserved for advanced and courageous climbers, this extremely demanding route has a IX+/X  grade (in the UIAA grading system) and it’s 140 m high.   

You can climb it using technical equipment or you can also do free climbing. Either way, you should expect between 8 to 12 hours of climbing.

Besides, this programme includes a pre-tour that works as a training and physical preparation for this trip.
