Description

Via ferrata routes are quite popular in Slovenia. On this trip, I propose to take you to via ferrata Silva-Korena in Mt Krn.

Mount Krn (2244 m) is a peak of the Julian Alps, in the northwest of the country.

The starting point of this trip will be the little and scenic town of Kobarid. Here, we can visit the First World War museum and learn about the historic heritage of this region.

From there, we'll continue towards Drežnica village, that lies on a small plateau at the foot of Mt Krn. At this point, we'll start scrambling. We'll climb on a route with very nice views and continue over protected sections towards the top. This is a hard via ferrata route, that goes over many vertical sections of the ridge.

At the end of the route, there's a mountain hut, only 10 minutes away from the summit of Mt Krn.

After this, we can continue our descent over the little valley of Luznica, visit the lake of Lovers, and descent back to Drežnica. Besides, we can also visit other smaller peaks in the region or visit the Pyramid monument at one of the remote white gravel saddles to the memory of the WWI soldiers of Austrian monarchy.

You'll enjoy some stunning views towards Kobarid and Soča valley during the ascent. From the summit you'll see the large Krn lake, Lepena Valley, Trenta and Mt Triglav.

We'll take between 8-12 hours to complete this climbing trip.

About the guide

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.

We did the Mangart, Slovenian route up and Italian route down. Blaz was an excellent guide, paying utmost attention to our safety. That's also why we started at 5 am, to avoid danger of potential thunderstorms in the afternoon. Blaz was very knowledgeable about the region and its turbulent history. We enjoyed our day with Blaz very much! Felt very very safe, learned a lot and would very happily recommend Blaz to anyone!
