Great classic of the S face (signposted route). Up to the summit, all the exposed sections are secured either with iron bars or with a handrail along which it is possible to use the via ferrata gear. The only danger may therefore eventually come from the behavior of the many people that you come across in the cruxes on sunny days.

This route, approximately that of the First ascent of Triglav in 1778, is a little easier than the route from the Triglavski dom Mountain Hut.

Ascent # approx. 1h45 (and more, if crowded)

From the Dom Planika] mountain hut, follow the signs northwards (signposted Triglav), first slightly downhill. Ascend along the scree, and then step into a gully (metal pegs, cables). After the gully/chimney, and after a notch, continue among rocks, the exposed sections always secured. Upon reaching the ridge, the route from the Triglavski dom Hut comes in from the right. Mali Triglav (mali = small) is just a few steps away. Between Mali Triglav and Triglav, the ridge is exposed and cables are again welcome. Then, until the summit, the ridge widens.


By the same route, or by one of the other possibilities (loop or traverse).
