Vihren Climbing Notes
Pavel Todorov from BULGARIA writes:
Тhe highest peak of the mountain, which has the highest northern wall in Bulgaria. Known for the Edelweiss, Vihren attracts many people from around the world.
It also offers close views of Kutelo and the entire marble ridge (Banski Suhodol, Bayuvi dupki, etc.)
The shortest and easiest route is from the Vihren hut through the Kabata area and the most difficult through the Djamdzhiev ridge - alpine ridge.
In winter it is obligatory to be with an Alpine guide.
