Stenar

By: Claudio Fava
Area: Julian Alps, Group: Triglav, Height: 2501m, Country: Slovenia, Region: Slovenian Alps

This panoramic mountain situated directly infront of Triglav's imposing north face can be reached without ever having to take your skis off. The descent through the Sovatna gully is long and sustained - rendering the Stenar and interesting descent when the snow pack is stable in spring.

ACCESS

Kranjska Gora is the base for this section of the Slovenian Alps. From Kranjska Gora drive to Mojstrana, then turnright for Val Vrata. Continue for 1.5 km to Aljazev Dom (altitude 950m)

ROUTE

From the refuge follow the narrow path up towards the vally head. Turn off right when you reach the path the leads to Stenar. Follow this for about 30 minutes through the woods to reach the start of the Sovatna valley. Continue up through the middle of this valley to climb through a steep narrow gully. From here traverse left to reach another small gully that, in turn, leads to a wide basin. Continue up south to just beneath Stenarska vratca 2295m and then proceed diagonally right to beneath the rocky walls to reh an obvious shoulder. Folow this steeply to the summit.

DESCENT

Descend along the line of ascent to the end of the Sovatna valley and then, to avoid the long walk back through the woods, traverse high right to pass the Pod Luknjo bivouac and reach the wide open valley that leads down to Luknja (if you're feeling fit continue on up to the col for the view). A great final flurry past the Tricorno north face brings you back to the Val Vrata and Aljaev Dom.

GEAR

Normal ski mountaineering equipment.
