Mt. Triglav Expedition

After a week in Croatia we drove up to Kranjska Gora, Slovenia to see some real mountains as the weather had turned better there. At least for most of the time.

Unfortunately, the only patch of bad weather hit us exactly when it shouldn’t have, at the summit of the highest peak in Julian Alps, Triglav (2864m). The descent from the summit in hail and rain storm to Alja??ev dom (1015m) via Prague route took us more than five hours instead of the expected three or so, making the total time climbing 11+ hours with a 30 minute lunch break at Triglavski dom na Kredarici hut. Never been so sore in my life and never have I climbed in a waterfall before. Unfortunately it wasn’t a place to stop for pictures.

But nevertheless the views and the experience were extraordinary especially on the Tominšek route on the way up the Triglav North Face.
