Route Description

 
Raduha N Face Ferrata
In the ravine

The joint ascent from the north goes for both routes some 20 minutes together. After you leave Koca na Grohatu, you soon pass the hut of mountain rescue organisation, start ascending more steeply towards the walls of Mala Raduha, and then reach the well marked crossroads.

Our direct route turns right, still by a good, marked path. A few inscriptions are saying that you are on a very nemanding path ('zelo zahtevno', which is quite exaggerated. The path ascends comfortably. Around a corner and over a side ridge we cross the steep slopes, covered with a nice larch forrest. A few minutes later we go even more horizontally, till on a nice place below a rocky barrier our path turns sharp left and up. (The other path continues crossing the slopes.) Now the real ascent begins. The path is more or less lost, but marks are good and as the route is very frequented, there are clear trails, indicating where to go. Soon also steel cables and pegs help us, so that we are good protected. All the time we are ascending through a ravine between the walls of Mala Raduha (on the left) and Velika Raduha (on the right). On the upper part of the ravine the route exits towards the right, over a few more steep sections we climb on a grassy side ridge, where all the troubles are over. Now we just walk up to the main ridge, turn right and soon we are on the highest point.
