It is exciting when you head to higher peaks and not know what to expect. We experienced two seasons – spring on the south side and winter on the north side. The south side required only normal mountaineering equipment, but the north side included snow and ice. The ascent to Prisojnik (2547 m) is demanding more…

Before bad weather period we headed to Mangart (2697m). The weather was almost kitschy (it is hard to believe we are in the middle of November). Pleasant temperatures and access clear of snow. The access from Italian side is covered with snow (use of axe and crampons is necessary). However, it has been a pleasure more…

A great company with an atmosphere convenient for mountain climbing and changeable weather conditions (rain, sun, wind) provided a great climb to Velika Baba (2127m). The climb proceeded on path Slovenska pot to cabin Ledinska koča (kind landlord – who cooked only for us) and continued along ferrata until the top. The descent, due to more…

Vipava again showed its charms in Podraška tura, Southwest wall – Direction over the plate (V/IV,145m), where I and Alenka drove to climb this long – tempting direction. The direction is at its beginnings quite grassy and hidden, but offers a beautiful climb afterwards. The descent was again great…everything proceeded as planned.

In early morning hours we drove over Predel, via Rabeljsko Lake to our starting place. Via cabin Corsi we climbed to peak Viš/Jof Fuart (2666m). The climb proceeded in foggy weather with winds. The view on the top was pleasant. The peak showed in all his greatness when we arrived back to the valley. Cold more…

There was not appropriate weather forecast to visit mountains, just Vipavska valley was sunny – as it has been predicted. I and Alenka took advantage of this good weather and headed to Podraška tura – South west wall to climb direction Južni raz (-IV/II, 350m). The direction offered us an enjoyable climb.
