I recommend the ascent along the Tominšek trail from the Vrata Valley for those who wish to experience the most beautiful views of the north wall of Triglav.
We’d been waiting for good conditions on Triglav ever since the start of September. Weekly weather outlooks usually promised sunny conditions, but as the planned climb came closer, the weather deteriorated.
I decided to visit Caucasus even though one of my clients decided not to join us. “Never stop exploring" was the overriding thought running through my head.
This season I’m going to be skiing on the carbon Mythic 97 and the wider and heavier Cham 107 2.0.
Peter Jeromel and the Slovenian guides association organized a glacier travel and crevasse rescue seminar, which was supposed to be carried out beneath Grossglockner, but the location was changed to Dachstein due to bad weather.
Allalinhorn (4,027 m) is one of the easier 4,000-metre peaks in the Alps, as a system of cable cars and a funicular bring you to an altitude of 3,456 m. Still, the normal route is threatened by big seracs looming overhead during part of the climb and the descent.
