Looking for new challenges in the mountains? Devil’s Pillar is a classic rock climbing route in the Julian Alps that you should definitely add to your bucket list!

It is a rock tower on the huge north wall of Prisojnik (2547 m), which is a very popular peak inside Triglav National Park.

Devil’s Pillar is an interesting and demanding grade V route (in the UIAA grading system). In fact, it’s 500 m high. However, all the effort has a reward: at the top, you will enjoy some stunning views of the surrounding peaks.

The starting point for this trip will be Koča na Gozdu mountain hut (1226 m). From there, we’ll take the Hanza route (one of the climbing routes to Prisank mountain). Finally, after almost 2 hours of hiking, we’ll reach a large snow field at the foot of the pillar.

Once on the rock tower, the total climbing time will be between 5 to 7 hours.

Please contact me if you want to climb the Devil’s Pillar. I can assure you it will be an enjoyable experience!
