The Cop Pillar is the most demanding and impressive climbing route in Mount Triglav’s north face. I invite you to join me on this challenging ascent, climbing an impressive wall in the highest peak in Slovenia in just one day.

Located in the Slovenian Julian Alps, Mount Triglav is the most popular climb in the country, with many ascent routes to the summit, but the Cop Pillar route is definitely the ultimate test to your alpine climbing skills.

Bear in mind this 1-day challenging ascent is only suitable for highly skilled climbers with an excellent fitness level. The climb usually demands a really long day. It takes about 12 hours long roundtrip, with 1500m of ascent and 1500m of descent. Starting and finishing the tour with headlamps is not unusual, but if you’re fit enough you will get an experience to be remembered.

The hardest pitches are at the very end of this famous route. The ascent involves 1000m climbing up to VI+ (6a) with traditional protection. It is recommended a sport climbing level experience of about 6b/6c.

So, if you are up for this amazing climb, just send me a request. Book your trip and come join me for an unforgettable 1-day climbing experience on Triglav’s North Face.
