The glory of ice climbing goes beyond the actual climbing. Instead, it is the feeling you experience when dangling from the gorgeous, glacial sheets of frozen water that create an ice fall, like the one found in the Mlacca gorge. Despite being at most 40 metres high, you somehow feel as if you are at least 4,000 metres up.

There is a sense of adventure, risk and danger in ice climbing that few, if any, other winter activities can truly capture. That risk is not solely a feeling however. It is a reality because ice climbing can be dangerous. You are climbing a frozen waterfall with crampons and an ice axe after all. That is why I believe it is essential that anybody who wishes to enjoy this activity learns the basics on how to enjoy it properly and safely. And that is exactly what I will teach you during this 1 day ice climbing course that is designed for beginners.

The Mlacca gorge features a gorgeous ice fall that is 200 metres long and 45 metres high. Beyond the gorge itself, you can also take some time to appreciate the beauty of the Triglav national park, where the gorge is located.

The trip will begin in Mojstrana, and from there we will make our way to the Mlacca Gorge. The course will last the day. But I can add on an additional day for those looking to take what they have learned and apply it to more challenging ice climbs in the area.

If you have always wanted to learn how to ice climb, this beginners course is for you. Also, the beauty of the Mlacca gorge will stay with you long after you leave. So send me a request, and let me guide you. I know you will have a great time.

I can also take you on another Slovenian ice climbing adventure at Kranjska Gora.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Ljubljana in 1988 and began climbing during high school. In 2010, I became a climbing instructor, after years of spending my free time on the walls of the Alps, both in Slovenia and abroad. I studied Geography at university, but mountaineering, climbing and now mountain guiding have always been my main occupation. I've received multiple awards, including the Piolet D'Or. I'm a fully certified IFMGA guide.
