I tried to add Kocna as an extra to my route when climbing Grintovec. I couldn't pass the tricky shallow ledge with my relativel big backpack on the northeast route. I am sure that it is not impossible, but by that time when I arrived there after Grintvec, I felt too tired to do this performance. Still I reached point 2320 m. 220 m below the summit.
I had new winter shoes, i wanted to break them in - not a very wise choice for my first ascent ,from Suhadolnik.There was no snow yet. Next time, in august 2002, we climbed it from Jezersko, Kremžar way,and on our way back passed a part of Dolška škrbina, returned very quickly, the storm was approaching, and that is not the place to be in bad weather.
Next time, in 2007,I was alone, and climbed it from Cojzova Hut, going down to Ceška hut.This time stable weather, finally.
