Slovenia has a strong place in the history of alpinism, the achievements of its climbers stretching from Patagonia to the Himalayas, with many first ascents, new routes, and novel approaches written into the history of the sport, and the years since the mid-1970s being especially productive. In English the story can be explored in Bernadette McDonald’s excellent Alpine Warriors, which takes a broad look at the last few decades in terms of Slovene climbers, as well as the same author’s Tomaž Humar, narrowing the focus to one of the sport’s better known figures.

It’s a history that deserves more attention, and one we aim to return to over the winter, but for now take the following video as a 12-minute visual history of alpinism in Slovenia, and get a feel for why it’s a sport worth following if you intend on making a life here.
