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.
Since the Tete Rose and Gouter huts on the normal Mont Blanc route had been fully booked in July, I followed the advice of Boris Lorenčič - Lori and did some climbs on the Italian side of Monte Rosa.
North Tyrol’s highest mountain is only 28 m lower than Grossglockner. I remember seeing the mountain as the fog lifted and knowing immediately that I wanted to climb it.
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.
Spring season around Oberstdorf started in the beginning of May. We were greeted by cold weather and snowfall at higher altitudes.
Last year some of my friends had an unpleasant experience at Boč, our local crag.
While we’re waiting for the first proper dump of snow, the weather at the coast is perfect for rock climbing.
This year's autumn keeps on surprising us. While winter already seemed to be in full swing with snow on the ridges of Triglav in September.
Hvar is a Dalmatian island with plenty of opportunities for all sorts of activities, be it sport climbing, deep water soloing, hiking, biking, slacklining over the sea, or kayaking.
We had picked the location for the annual spring climbing even before I went to Chamonix in winter – it was Malta, a small Mediterranean island.
The most important business event hosted by the Slovenian tourism industry every year is the SLOVENIAN INCOMING WORKSHOP.
If you want to climb Mont Blanc this summer, now is the time to begin preparing and training.
Is your goal to climb Triglav in one and a half day?
Look at the heavenly scenery studded with countless stars I could not sleep. I waited on the comet , which every now and then crossed the sky and my mind with ever new desires. So I bivaque on the Sahara dunes . Stars and glimpses are filled my soul . In my mind I was getting in step with himself.
As a mountain guide , I again found himself in Morocco on my journey through time . Good company I shared with mountain guides Aco , Spela , Mojca , Thomas, Irene , Darja , Vida , Milena , Hussein , Mohamed .... Although the trekking routine planned , but we experienced some unexpected adventures. Three days prior to departure fell 15 cm of snow on Toubkal and the temperature during the day did not fall under - 10 degrees C. Nevertheless, we had slightly warmer conditions and we quickly climbed the highest peak in North Africa and enjoy the breathtaking views of the desert and lush East green meadows in the west.
Todra canyon was the complete opposite of cooler 4167 m high Toubkal area. We got the blood in the veins on excellent rocks , in addition, we were warmed on hot sun . After climbing it was a pleasant soak your feet in colder stream .
Every participant of this avature experienced its own story. Some of them were and will remain in the mind. Some of them were recorded by cameras . My photos you can see on the Flickr!
