OverviewBavh (2188 m) is part of Loška Stena, an array/group of mountains introduced on the Loška Stena page.
As usual for the Loška Stena peaks, there is a Bala valley side (South) and a Koritnica valley side (North). Without entering the upper part of the Koritnica valley, upstream from the village of Log pod Mangartom along a macadamized road, one does not get to see Bavh. It appears just before the road ends.
Getting ThereBala Valley : Bavšica Trailhead (alt. 710 m)
Koritnica Valley : Log pod Mangartom (alt. 650 m)
RidgesNo easy or marked route.
The E ridge starts in the notch between Bavh and Plešivec. I don't recommend the crossing of both summits without a mountain guide.
The W ridge is easier, from the col between Bavh and Bedinji Vrh, but no path leads to the col.
North FaceThe north face of Bavh is in the Koritnica valley. First climbed in the 1980s, the uneasily approachable north face now features six routes, 620 to 800 m tall, all very difficult, extremely difficult and maybe more. Half the routes are winter ascents. Check the external links below for beta. Note that some of the most interesting and difficult ice lines of the Koritnica valley form below Bavh, on the pedestal.
