UIAA Global Youth Summit: Slovenia 2012

The 2012 UIAA Global Youth Summit was based in the Mountaineering Training Centre Bavšica in the Bavšica Valley which is near Bovec, you can click here for more information; 

This was my first trip to Slovenia and I had no idea what to expect.

This was our accomodation for the 5 days we were staying, the Mountaineering Training Centre Bavšica

 There were a number of sessions looking at different skills and ways they were used, this was a communication based session which required no talking! hard for some of the team members!

A very good presentation from Luka Stražar, who recived the Piolet d’or award for new route on K7 west in Charakusa, Pakistan this year.

Some of the Team members going for a wee Via Ferrata

This was the team of Delegates/Hosts/Speakers.

Below is a very quick short video of the trip... 

I wanted to get something online quickly and will update this with a proper report in due course... enjoy!
