Description

This is one of the longest, most beautiful and enjoyable Slovenian ridge traverse. I guide it every year. Would you like to join me this time?

For 3 days, we’ll be traversing some of the most beautiful and remote ridges in the Julian Alps. I like to call this trip Slovenian ‘Peuterey’ ridge traverse, like the famous (and longest) ridge climb in the Alps.

First, following the hunters trail, we’ll climb Mt Goličica (2108 m), which is a feat in its own. Once at the top, we’ll take the exposed and steep ridge line over the slopes and walk up and down. On the way, we’ll be exploring the changing paths of wild animals and admiring the beautiful sights.

Mostly, we’ll be facing technical difficulties up to UIAA grade V. However, we can also make it even harder by taking the direct route (UIAA VI+).

We’ll continue traversing the ridge to Mt Planja, enjoying breathtaking views. Then, we can descend either towards Kriški podi Hut, the Zadnjica Valley and Trenta through a nice and easy scenic route, or towards Mlinarica Valley, where we’ll climb an interesting via ferrata in descent.

If you wish, we can extend this traverse to the top of Mount Triglav. For that, we’ll climb Mt Bovski Gamsovec and descend towards Luknja pass. This is one of the most fascinating ridge ascents to the top of the highest peak in the Julian Alps, rising at 2864 m.

Do you want to be part of a great adventure in the Julian Alps? Then join me for this Slovenian ridge traverse, exploring some lesser-known parts of these peaks.

In case you are looking for a less demanding or shorter activity in Slovenia, climbing via ferrata Silva-Korena is an interesting option.

About the guide

guide profile img

I’m an IFMGA Mountain Guide and an Alpine Instructor from Slovenia.

At the back of the house where I grew up, past a slope, a higher hill and some rocks, you could see Mount Triglav rising towards the blue sky.

Mountains were a part of my backyard and I started practicing alpinism when I was a schoolboy. At that time, I enrolled for a sport climbing school and I became an alpine instructor in 1995.

Between 1995 and 1997, I’ve been a member of the Sub-commission on Extreme Alpinism for the Slovene Alpine Society. Some years later, I was Chief of the Commission for Alpinism.

As a member of the alpine team, I went on several expeditions in North and South America, the Himalaya, the Tian Shan and the Kookshall-Too mountain range.

I climbed more than 700 routes in Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and France. Long winter climbs and ridges are always among my favorites.

I made some first winter ascents: on two routes on the north wall of Ribezni, Možnica (700m, V+, 5, UIAA VI/A1) and in Jof di Montasio / Poliški Špik, Grapa (700m, UIAA 4, ascent and complete ridge traverse). Other memorable climbs were a winter traverse of 4000 m peaks in Mont Blanc (4807 m) and the Slovenian Peuterey ridge traverse, among many others.

After 6 years of training, I obtained my IFMGA certification in 2010.

I organize many guided ski touring, rock climbing and ice climbing trips in Slovenia, especially in the surroundings of Mt. Triglav and the whole Soča valley.
