Ascent Trip Report

2h50 up, 2h15 down, via Polinikhutte from roadhead parking above Obervellach, good trail, cabling near top gets in the way a little but generally welcome, especially in slippery conditions doubtless.

The day after Triglav, on tired legs, early start to beat forecast rain. Initial forest busy with crossbill calls, above hut crested tits common. Ibex in upper corrie, ptarmigan calling near summit, decent range of plants. Cross marks the highpoint, small upright trig block adjacent. Summit itself in cloud, but clear a little further down, dramatic views down to Obervellach and across valley but nothing distant. On to Ellmauer/ Wilder Kaiser for tomorrow
