The first recorded climb to the summit took place in August 26th. 1778. It is now said that you are not a complete Slovenian until you have climbed Triglav. It is not easy but can be done by most persons who are reasonably fit and have a good head for heights and are properly equipped.
The best season to climb it is from beginning of July (or when the snow melts) till the middle of October (or before the snow comes) but the best months are August and September. Most people allow two days for the trip, one day up and one down.
The mountain has walk up (Category 1) (Yosemite Decimal System 5.2) and technical rock climb routes. The technical rock climb routes are on the North side.
The Lonely Planet details 4 routes to the top. The National Park office in Bled can provide maps, mountain conditions and help you book the mountain huts.
