Bad weather - dry conditions a must Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2012
Set out for a solo climb of Stenar thinking I'd pick up BG on the way. Started from Vrata... from the beech forests to Luknja was all morning fog. Once at Luknja was above fog and had a nice view of the Triglav wall rising above the fog. Headed off for Bovski Gamsovec and the rocks were getting wet and slippery. Made it thru a couple ferretas to the marked trail to Vrh. Fog (slippery) and visibility really bad here so didn't summit. Went a bit further to some tricky areas and turned back because of weather. On way back got up close with two bull ibex in the fog and saw a chamois zoom by thru the clouds. A little secondary summit overlooking Vrata (with a white rock on it) caught my eye between low clouds blowing thru... so I went off trail and summited it. No Bovski Gamsovec but fun to see the ibex and chamois.
Iclimbed Bovski Gamsovec from Luknja with my cousin Irena.It is the land of ibex, i find it uncanny how they seem to know they are protected species.Chamois is afraid by definition, and ibex just does not like you, so I think.
Next time I climbed it coming from Pogacnik Hut, some nice views and wonderfull flowers.Coming down to Luknja, you can really study the North Triglav Wall.
