My daughter Hanna had picked this trail - while studying the map - as one of the most promising in this area, and it turned out she was right. We set off from Pribylina, onto the ridge of Otrhance and returned via the Rackova valley.
I made my career high single day altitude gain at that day - 2200 altitude metres. Our route: Ziarska valley - Smutne sedlo - Placlivy Rohac - Ostry Rohac - Volovec - Derava - Hruby vrch - Jakubina (highest point of the trip) - Otrhance - Rackova valley. It was warm summer day.
