Ascent Trip Report

Upwards on the Slovenian ferrata. Some sections of the ferrata route were covered by steep and hard icy snow, and these sections could be overpassed only by exposed climbs on rock walls. The loose dolomit rock made it even more dangerous. An Austrian climber helped me by securing my way with his rope.

Down on the normal Italian route. Much easier, but attention was needed here, too, becaues long sections of the slope were covered by snow.
