Climbing in Slovenia » Climbing in Slovenia
Climbing in Slovenia is a year-long activity. There are over 120 sports climbing crags, some of them warm enough for winter climbing, tons of trad- and bolted multi-pitch climbs, icefalls…
If you’d like to do a bit more than just hiking in the mountains, or if you’d like to try out rock climbing, you might like some of the ideas I put together based on my personal experience. Also, assuming you’re a climbing beginner, you might want to play it safe and hire a mountain guide; I included some recommendations in individual climb descriptions.
If you’re a seasoned climber, you’re probably looking for more information.
A Few Ideas
Multipitch Climbing in Gradiška Tura (500 m, Δ=250 m, 3 hours)
Triglav North Face (2500 m, Δ=1500 m, 10 hours)
Climbing the central part of the enormous Triglav North Face was considered one of the big problems of the Eastern Alps in the late 1800s until three Austrian climbers managed to climb the German Route (Nemška Smer) in 1907.
Today, the Triglav North Face is much more accessible. Every summer, hundreds of mountaineers climb Slovenian Route (Slovenska Smer), including foreign Prime Ministers during state visits, and dozens of roped teams climb other more accessible routes, including German and Bavarian routes.
