Extreme heat and high temperatures are strenuous this summer in Ljubljana and might make your days here dreary. You might wish to stay inside in the safe proximity of air conditioning and a refreshing smoothie with ice, if you are not adventurous enough to cool yourself down in many of the fountains across the centre (this is not forbidden by law).
However, if you are up for some moving on not so hot afternoons and evenings, and you prefer climbing holds from those in the wall built by the Romans, renovated by Joze Plecnik and used by climbers in the very proximity (see article The Roman Pyramid) you might want to try out an outdoor climbing.boulder wall located away from the city centre in the Sport Park Svoboda on Vic.
It consists of two five meter high boulder towers connected with a boulder wall roof with many routes marked, but it’s possible to make your own depending on your skills. High trees around the wall protect the climbers from annoying sunbeams and the drink tap might save you from dehydration.
I suggest bringing your own climbing shoes or renting them by request on the Slovenian climbing portal Friko. Borrowing a crash pad from co-climbers is also a good idea, as falling from boulders is common and getting injured would not be a pleasant experience. After climbing you can chill in the neighbouring bar with a glass of ice cold beer or other refreshments.
