Overview

Most photos in the Images section of this page come from the Bavški Grintavec page - views of the famous ridge line starting with Bavški Grintavec and running Northeast: Bavški Grintavec (2347 m), Srebrnjak (2100 m), Trentski Pelc (2109 m) and Plešivec (2008 m, not to mix up with the Plešivec of the Loška Stena group).

Srebrnjak (2100 m) is a typically "Trenta" peak, which is usually enough said: scarce paths if at all, pine bush, steep and often exposed, long. Trenta is the name of the upper Soča valley, as well upstream of the Soča source (Zadnja Trenta) as downstream and almost to the city of Bovec (Spodnja Trenta). If we follow the Trenta valley upstream along the road, we meet Srebrnjak, its SE face, left-hand ca. 2 km before reaching the village of Trenta (620 m).

Upstream of the village of Trenta, we reach the Soča source and after walking-in the Zadnja Trenta valley above the source (marked and secured), we may reach Srebrnjak again, this time its NW face, again on the right bank. The Zapotok meadow below the Srebrnjak NW face often hosted climbers and the NW wall hosts many Trad climbs, ca 450 m tall, in the UIAA IV and V range (check the external links below).

Getting There

See the Julian Alps overview page and the Mangart and Jalovec Group page for info on the Vršič Pass road, the road between Bovec and Kranjska Gora! The village of Trenta is the main settlement along the southern part of the Vrsic Pass road, between Bovec and the Vršič Pass. The village of Trenta would be the logistical center/trailhead for a SE ascent. For the NW face routes, the Zapotok meadow and the upper Trenta valley (Zadnja Trenta), the trailhead is the mountain hut at the Soča source (Koča pri Izviru Soče, bus stop).
