A rare chance taken. 

September 14, 2018

For over a century the Aljaž Tower has provided shelter and a photo opportunity for climbers at the top of Mount Triglav, but after 123 years it’s has been taken down for a few weeks to get some much needed repairs. While for some this means a climb is now out of the question – for what is the summit without it’s tower? – for others this represents a once in a lifetime chance to stand on the bare peak and gain a picture to show off for decades to come.

One team that took the latter attitude was led by Mitja Šorn of Triglav Guides, a man and company dedicated to taking people safely up and down the mountain (details here), and who kindly shared these pictures from the top of Slovenia.
