Borut Naglič

I was born on 13th of June 1964. I have been practicing alpine climbing and guiding since 1988. I'm professional mountain guide since 2003 and I'm also professional ski instructor. I was a member of a Mountain Rescue Association of Slovenia. Through all these years mountains have become my second home and alpine climbing, with all its varieties, my way of life.

My alpine climbing started in the local mountains, Kamnik-Savinja Alps and Julian Alps, which are still my dearest. It continued in the steep walls of Dolomites then in the Western Alps and in the Andes of South America (two expeditions in Peru and Patagonia). I have climbed several first ascents at home and in the foreign mountains and made over 700 alpine ascents – in rock and ice, done many ski touring and reached the tops of several fourthousanders in the Western Alps. However I still found some time in between to wander around Argentina, Chile, West African coast,...

Let me list some of my outstanding ascents: climbing to Poincenot (3036 m) in Patagonia, solo first ascent to Artesonraju (6025 m)) in Cordillera Blanca, Cerro Plata (6315 m) in Argentina, several routes in Dolomites' walls (Tofana, Tre Cime, Brenta,...). I have climbed almost all of the great classic routes in the local mountains (The Čop Pillar and Skalaška, Aschenbrener route in Travnik,...) and made some winter and summer first ascents. I sport climb up to IX grade.

All these experiances together with my international mountain guide licence obtained through completing a mountain guide training garantee that I will safely guide you through local and foreign mountains.
