Part of the Eastern Alps, these imposing limestone peaks are located in a wild and scenic region on the borders where Italy, Austria, and western Slovenia meet. What these mountains lack in height they make up for in character: Their sheer cliffs and razor-sharp ridges rise to steep, crumbling pinnacles. Excellent and long rock-climbs abound here, the highest and most popular of which is Triglav (9,396 ft./ 2,864 m), whose steep north wall is one of the most daunting sights in the Alps.
