OverviewSrebrnjak (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).
By following the Trenta valley upstream (along the road), we meet the SE face of Srebrnjak, to the left, cca 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 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 beta in the external links chapter).
Most photos in the Images section come from the Bavski Grintavec page : views of the famous ridge line starting with Bavški Grintovec and running Northeast, as seen in the image below - right to left - : Bavški Grintovec, Srebrnjak, Trentski Pelc, and Plešivec (not to be confused with the Plešivec of the Loška Stena group).
Bavški Grintovec to the right. Next, right to left: Srebrnjak (with the long summit ridge), Trentski Pelc (pointed), and Plešivec.
Kranjska Gora to Bovec via Vršič pass = 45 km.
> To approach the NW face routes above the Zapotok meadow (uppermost Trenta valley/Zadnja Trenta), the trailhead is the mountain hut at the Soča source (Koča pri Izviru Soče, upstream of the village of Trenta along the Vršič Pass road (bus stop).
> The trailhead for a SE ascent is the village of Trenta.
