“A steep trail to the three highest peak in the Balkans.”— Jonathan Salibra
From here, you traverse to the south to attain the ridge and then swing to the north where the marble pyramid of Vihren rises above you. A short, flat section allows you a brief rest before the final push towards the summit where you scramble over some very rocky terrain.
