Challenge yourself in one of the hardest climbing routes in Triglav north face: the Cop Pillar. 

This is one of the more than 120 climbing routes on the impressive north wall of the highest peak in Slovenia.

In fact, it’s one of the most famous: it was climbed for the first time in 1945, by Pavla Jesih and Joža Čop.

The Cop Pillar is a 1000 m high route, with a grade VI+ in the UIAA grading system.

The only way to access this route is by taking another recognizable route first, like Skalaška.

Please, contact me if you want to come for an exciting rock climbing journey! I’ll be glad to be your guide in this classic and challenging route. 

I can also take you to other climbing routes in Triglav north face, like the Slovenian route (III-III) or the Bavarian route (IV+).

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an aspirant iFMGA mountain guide born in 1980 in Mojstrana, a Slovenian village close to Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in the country at 2864 m.

From an early age, my parents took me to the mountains during summer and winter. At that time, my father was part of a mountain rescue team in my hometown and was also going on expeditions to the Himalaya and the Andes, so he became a big inspiration for me. We went climbing, hiking, sport climbing and ski touring together. His enthusiasm truly influenced me.

I went to Alpine school, then Mountain rescue team, I did the Alpinist exam and I became an Alpinist instructor. After that, I also studied to be a professor of Sport. Several years later, I decided to begin my mountain guide education and to become an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide.
