Mount Triglav winter ascent

Description

Conquering the summit of Mount Triglav (2864 m) —the highest peak in Slovenia— is a great mountain adventure, also available on the winter season. Would you like to join me?

Located inside Triglav National Park, in the mountains of the Julian Alps, the impressive Mt Triglav attracts climbers all year round.

However, the winter season (from November to the end of April) is much less crowded and offers some more interesting technical challenges. Due to its higher difficulty, winter ascents are only intended for climbers with some previous experience.

For this climb, we’ll use crampons and an ice axe. We’ll take the common route from Krma Valley to Kredarica Hut. After spending the night at the hut, we’ll continue towards the summit the following day.

About the 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!

Nice guy. We were unable to complete the hike due to personal reasons. But Matevz was understanding and did not tell us what to do. Instead he offered the facts and gave us options, which was the right way to do so. We ended up doing alternative activities on second day, which was a nice way to replace the 2 day itinerary.
