Multi-pitch climbing in Slovenia: Bavarian route

Multi-pitch climbing in Slovenia: Bavarian route | undefined

A challenging IV+ climbing route on the north face of Mount Triglav, in Slovenia. Join this 1-day trip on the Bavarian route with Matevz, an IFMGA certified mountain guide.

Julian Alps

1 Day

Jun - Sep




At the heart of the Julian Alps, Mount Triglav (2864 m) rises as the highest and most emblematic peak in Slovenia. Its 1000 m high north wall is a jewel for climbers all over the world. 

In fact, you can find more than 100 routes for all levels there. This time, I propose you to climb a challenging multi-pitch route called Bavarian route.

The firsts to climb this route were two German climbers. At the time, the route was considered as the hardest in Triglav north face.

This is an 800 m route, IV+ grade in the UIAA grading system. The climb is constant and demanding. At the end of this route, you can either take Zimmer-Jahn exit (at 2200 m) or continue towards the Long German route (Kugy's shelfs) at 2500 m.

Are you ready for a multi-pitch climbing adventure in the impressive north face of Mt Triglav? Send me a request and let's go there together!

I offer many mountain programmes in this area, like a 1-day hike in Seven Triglav Lakes. Please note that you can combine this trip with any other you wish and receive a discount. Besides, you can ask about other non-mountain activities including horseback riding, mountain biking, skydiving, paragliding, kayaking, hot air ballooning and more!

Mountain Guide

I’m a certified IFMGA mountain guide and canyoning guide living in the small and famous town of Bled, in Slovenia.

I started rock climbing at the age of 5. From that time on, the mountains became my playground. During my childhood, I took part in many rock climbing competitions. When I was 12, my twin brother and I did our first multi-pitch climb on a 350 m wall.

By the age of 16, I started competing in ice climbing world cups and later on skydiving junior world cups. In fact, in 2008 I became the world champion at the UIAA Ice Climbing Overall Ranking in speed ice climbing.

I climbed in many different countries like Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, France and Italy. However, Slovenia is the place I like the most.

Among other significant achievements, I did the first winter ascent (from the bottom of the wall) in Sphinx, the most difficult route in the mythical North Face of Mt Triglav. Besides, I got the first place for males at the IFMGA International mountain guide climbing championship in 2017.

I like sharing moments with people, especially in mountains. Feel free to join me in the highest mountains, steepest walls and many other Alpine wonders. I’m flexible, so we can also research places in other countries worldwide. Deep canyons, emerald rivers, beautiful mountains, great people, a good laugh, you name it.

I look forward to meeting you!

What people are saying about Matevz



We had an amazing time climbing with Matevz near Bled! He took us to his hometown crag and found us several routes that suited our skill level. Strongly recommended.



Stunning hike up Debela Pec with our guide Timotei from Altitude Activities. Everything was exactly as we hoped - super kind and friendly guide, beautiful scenery, fun hiking in the snow and a great traditional Slovenian lunch at the hut on the way down. Great experience!



Very nice team and trip! Maybe the group was a bit too large...



Amazing hike!! Enjoyed it a lot:D



We only had a small time in Bled and wanted a half day snow shoe tour. The company were very accommodating and were able to offer a shorter tour for us based around our needs. Very easy to book and communicate about where to meet etc. Our tour guide was great, very friendly and welcoming. He took the tour at our pace and we enjoyed the hike. Would highly recommend 👍🏽
