The route belongs to the iron classic selection of our mountains. It takes place mostly on a good scale and has individual places of true fourth grade. It is characterized by well-arranged problems along the entire route and picturesque and exposed climbing in the upper part. Following the German turn, the route continues along the Zlatorog trails to the German pillar, which winds to the Kugy ledge, which delimits the Triglav glacier and the Western Triglav plateau. In the last part we will climb the famous 60 m scale, which offers enchanting views of the valley. From Kugy's ledge we will climb over the western Triglav wall to the northern ridge and to the top of Triglav, but the ascent can end on the ledge and descend to Krma via Kredarica.

We will start the tour in the parking lot in front of Aljaž's hut (1015 m)and walk over the path across Prag to the foot of the Wall, where the entrance is in both Slovenian and German route.

We will climb a characteristic ridge and climb all the way along or a little to the left and right of the central pillar. In between we will step on the characteristic piers. Opposite the German castle, a characteristic yellow wall with a large crack awaits us, which leads us to the place where we have the castle in the palm of our hand. The last steeper part then leads us to the registration book, which lies on the German turn. Next we will follow the German couloir. After part of the Zlatorog trails, we will rejoin the central pillar and follow it all the way to the exit part, where the famous 60 m shell and a magnificent exit from it awaits us. The difficulty of the upper exit part will be in the upper fourth level of difficulty at all times.

According to the first variant, we will exit directly to Kugy’s ledge (approx. 2550 m), from there we will cross the Triglav glacier, reach the Triglav lodge at Kredarica (2515 m) and descend to Krma valley.

Another option is to extend the route to the top of Triglav. Continue to the right in the direction of Plemenice and reach the Western Triglav plateau. From there we will climb the western wall to the northern ridge and then on to the top of Triglav (2864 m). So we will do with 1300 altitude meters of climbing.

The guide is intended for adults and children over the age of 15. The guided tour starts by appointment, and with our transport we pick you up in front of your room, apartment or hotel. We take care of all the necessary technical equipment.

Two clients are guided only if they have previously climbed an alpine wall higher than 500 m, in the fourth level of difficulty, or have climbing experience from climbing crags where they climb routes with a score of at least 5c.
