[Including routes on other faces presently] Triglav, the mighty triglav. One of the true classic mountains of the old Eastern Bloc. As the national high point of Slovenia and the Julien Alps, the soaring three headed beast also finds fame as being on the Slovenian flag. Its north face offers ludicrous epic multi-pitch routes. However, three 'steadier' ascents of the mountain also negotiate the north face on its left and right flanks with a spot of fairly challenging via ferrata. The large North Face has lots of immense and impressive routes, but information in English is hard to come by. The rock quality is better on the harder routes. Lots of in-situ pegs, but take your own as well. By July and August the north face should be snow-field free. However, snowstorms and blizzards can and often do swathe the mountain in blankets of white even in the height of summer, so speed of ascent and careful weather-checking is a must. For technical trad ascents treat Triglav as you would any alpine peak.
Campsites are plentiful, maps are easy to come by and Triglav even has its own museum. The mountain has a ton of refuges on it and extendded tours in and around the mountain are easy to plan.
