Sljeme (Šljeme)

Šljeme (2455 m) is a mountain in the massif of Durmitor, with a summit plateau that extends for more than a kilometer in the east-west direction. From the north it is an almost vertical rock, of about 200-300 meters in height. South side is much less steep and raises from the road that goes towards Sedlo (Saddle) pass. From this south side the mountain can be climbed practically from any point. From the north-east, Šljeme can be climbed from Savin kuk peak (2313 m) (chair-lift to Savin kuk available) through a narrow couloir. This same connection between Savin kuk and Šljeme can be reached from the north side (fixed, hanging cable in a very bad state), from Velika Kalica valley.
