Traversing the Siroka Pec Ridge to the Dovski Kriz Mountain

Traversing the Siroka Pec Ridge to the Dovski Kriz Mountain | Slovenia

Join Martin, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, on this inspiring mountaineering experience traversing the Siroka Pec Ridge to the Dovski Kriz Mountain, in the Julian Alps.

Julian Alps

1 Day

Jun, Jul



This 1-day Siroka Pec Ridge traverse is one of the greatest adventures you can embark on the Julian Alps!

The Siroka Pec Ridge looks like an impenetrable fortress from above. It’s an exposed ridge that consists of seven rock towers that make it the most powerful mountain of the Martuljek group in the Julian Alps.

My plan is to climb all the rock towers while we aim to the Dovski Kriz Mountain (2542 m). And this Grade III expedition will start from the Gozd Martuljek Village at 700 m and will last around 7 hours.

We’ll approach the mountain from the northeast, so we’ll first go to the AK Cirque and then carry on to the Amphitheater, which is a bit of a climbing challenge. From there on we’ll traverse the ridge going through the towers and enjoying the magnificent scenery al the way to the Dovski Kriz peak. 

The descent is also a bit demanding. We’ll slowly climb down the east face to the Bivouac II and continue down through the Vrata Valley.

Sounds like an amazing adventure? It is! Send me a request now and we’ll start planning your mountaineering adventure to this impressive Siroka Pec Ridge. You’ll spend an unforgettable experience!

Mountain Guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.

What people are saying about Martin



Brilliant trip we didn't do what we planned the eiger Because of the weather but he made every effort to make sure we did something else. We did the matterhorn and it was a brilliant trip guided really well, loads of knowledge. Thank you very much



Martin is a complete professional on and off the mountain. Always willing to share insights and knowledge about alpinism and climbing and made me feel comfortable and safe at all times. Whenever I had questions before the climb he would always be quick to answer with all the relevant information. The summit attempt of the Matterhorn was a success and Martin brought joy, knowledge and energy throughout the entire process.



Martin Zumer is an incredibly skilled climber who successfully guided me to the top of the Matterhorn. I felt safe with him for the entire trip, and I developed confidence in my own personal climbing abilities with his guidance. It was a lot of fun to climb with him and learn from him, and I would highly recommend him as a guide any day.
