The sphynx of Triglav
The most vertical part of Triglav north wall is made of a different, harder rock. The tower is called Sfinga - Sphynx, and hosts a few very hard climbing routes. September 2007.

From classical climbs degree VI/A2 (Kunaver-Drasler) up, towards free climbs IX/IX+ (The Face of Sfinga). Routes just in Sfinga are up to 350m high. So, even if the north wall of Triglav is more than 1000 meters high, just the Sfinga part is only 1/3. Climbers usually dopn't come from below the wall, but enter the Amfiteater (below Sfinga) from the side - by ledges, from the protected route over the western ridge.
