Description

Ready to pursue the highest mountain in Slovenia? Come along as we go on the mightiest, highest and broadest wall of this 2,864 m mountain in the Julian Alps. The wall is 1,000 m tall and almost 4,000 m wide. It is so powerful that we simply call it the Wall – with a capital W. So, grab your mountain shoes and helmet, and let’s go!

Triglav’s north wall offers over 120 routes. On this program, I will reveal the kingdom of the Wall and the puzzles of its classic climbing routes to you. A classic Slovenian tour!

First of all, I will pick you up at your accommodation (Kranjska Gora, Bled). Then, we will transfer to the Vrata valley. Ideally, this point is where our hike will both begin and conclude. But if the road to Vrata valley is not clear of snow to make reach this starting point – which takes between 1.5 and 2 hours -, we will start walking from the middle of the valley (around 5 km in from the parking place in Vrata).

Next, we will follow the path below the Wall, and ascend around 500 m. If the winter conditions are ideal, you will get a full 900 m of best winter climbing! Once at the top of the wall, we will follow Prag via ferrata for our descent.

This program is available from the end of February, until the end of April. If the conditions of the Wall permit it, we could also go on this tour before this initial date.

OPTIONAL: If you would like to pursue the Triglav summit (2,864 m) as well, we can add this to the program. This would require spending the night at a hut, to reach the summit on the second day. See additional fees and expenses for this option below.

The basic equipment you will need for this program is: appropriate mountain clothes and shoes, helmet, climbing harness, backpack, 2x locking carabiner, sling 120 cm. Before departure, I will send you a more complete list. Also, I will provide the technical equipment.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an aspirant iFMGA mountain guide born in 1980 in Mojstrana, a Slovenian village close to Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in the country at 2864 m.

From an early age, my parents took me to the mountains during summer and winter. At that time, my father was part of a mountain rescue team in my hometown and was also going on expeditions to the Himalaya and the Andes, so he became a big inspiration for me. We went climbing, hiking, sport climbing and ski touring together. His enthusiasm truly influenced me.

I went to Alpine school, then Mountain rescue team, I did the Alpinist exam and I became an Alpinist instructor. After that, I also studied to be a professor of Sport. Several years later, I decided to begin my mountain guide education and to become an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide.
