Climbing the long German route on Triglav north face

Climbing the long German route on Triglav north face | undefined

A 1-day climbing trip on the impressive north face of Mt Triglav following the German route, together with Nejc, IFMGA mountain guide.

Julian Alps

1 Day



Mount Triglav (2864 m) is the highest mountain in Slovenia and boasts a gorgeous north wall. This wall has more than 120 climbing routes. Would you like to join me for a 1-day adventure there?

This time we'll take the German route, one of the classic 'iron routes' in the Julian Alps. It's a solid 1000 m rock route with stretches of Grade IV difficulty in the UIAA Grading System.

However, the difficult spots are spread along the route on a balanced proportion. There's also a quite exposed climb on the upper part of the route, with a very scenic landscape.

Our starting point will be Aljažev dom in Vrata Valley. From there, we'll take the Prag Route and hike for almost 2 hours to the foot of Triglav's north face.

The German climbing route offers a few alternatives. We will take the "the long German Route", which consists in taking the North Ridge of Triglav. Following this way extends the route in 300 m and leads you directly to the summit of this symbol of Slovenia.

Would you like to join me on a climbing trip through the German route in Triglav? Contact me so we can start planning your adventure!

If you don't have much climbing experience or you prefer to pick an easier route, you can also climb the Slovenian route on the north face of Triglav with me.

Mountain Guide

Mountains have been a part of my life since childhood. I started doing more serious mountaineering expeditions at the end of high school after successfully completing all levels of mountain climbing courses. In the last 10 years, I have been at least on one expedition every year. I climbed in Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, the USA, Scotland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, France, Swiss, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Tibet and Nepal.

I completed my training as a mountaineering guide and became a full member of the IFMGA family.

I enjoy climbing both Slovenian and foreign mountains.

Some of my most unforgettable and also the most successful routes:

Tsoboje - Slovenian direct (2021)
Kang Ri - East pillar (2013)
Janak - Blue racer (2012)
K7 West - The dreamers of the golden caves (2011)

The route I climbed on K7 West was rewarded with Piolet d’or recognition for mountaineering achievements in the world.

If you want to climb the north face of Triglav (Slovenia’s highest mountain) or any other walls in Slovenia, please contact me. I also enjoy guiding ski trails in winter in the Julian Alps.

What people are saying about Nejc



What a great day with Nejc! It may have been white out conditions with clouds but the climb and summit was amazing! Nejc was a joy to climb with and an incredible guide! Picked me up and we headed out to the park. He has so much experience as an elite alpinist and a great personality. Would love to climb again with him! Highly recommend Nejc and this trip.



I'm very happy and privileged to get to climb Matterhorn together with Marija. As a guide myself, I very much appreciate the chance to meet someone as experienced and knowledgeable as her, and to be able to gather knowledge. She's positive, humble and trustworthy, and I hope to do many more advanced climbs with her. Great guide, great trip. Thank you!



Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.



Marija is a very good and experienced guide. I will definately choose to go with Marija again.



Marija was professional and showed great patience and fitness. This all culminated in a successful ascent of the Matterhorn. I would recommend her.
