Velika Baba, Central Route

1-Day Tour, Jezersko to Jezersko

Distinguished by excellent firm rock, just the right level of difficulty and spectacular views of the neighboring peaks, this Alpine route above the beautiful valley of Jezersko is perfect for anyone desiring to tackle a great Alpine wall for the first time. It’s a true Alpine beauty! An added safety bonus? The whole route is equipped with bolts and fixed anchors.

Itinerary

We park in Jezersko, a mesmerizing place hidden at the foothills of high mountains, and head towards a steep thousand-meter high face of Velika Baba, a prominent mountain in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. At the start of the 700-meter climbing wall, we put on our climbing harness and a helmet, attach ourselves to a rope, and enter the route. The New Central Route in Velika Baba offers four hours of a pleasurable climb on a smooth face, throughout equipped with safety bolts, and ends with views of green Jezersko and a grey world above it. We return on the via ferrata towards the Ledine Hut and from there back to the valley of Jezersko.
