Mount Jalovec (pronounced [ˈjaːlɔvəts]) is a mountain in the Julian Alps. With an elevation of 2,645 m, it is the sixth-highest peak in Slovenia. It stands between the Tamar, Koritnica, and Trenta Alpine valleys. Nearby peaks include Mangart to the west, Travnik and Mojstrovka to the east, and Ponce to the north. The Log Cliff (Slovene: Loška stena, Italian: Parete di Bretto) stands immediately southwest of Mount Jalovec.
Mount Jalovec was attested in written sources as early as 1763–87 as Jellauz and Jelauz. The name is derived from the Slovene adjective jalov, meaning 'infertile', referring to the bare slopes of the mountain.
