Maja Lagojvet

The peak on the right is Maja Lagojvet. One map gives the height of 2466m but a GPS measurement at the base of the wall in 2008 plus a watch altimeter measurement at the summit gave the altitude of about 2540m. We made the first ascent of it on 31 August 2009 via the right-hand side of the visible (north) face. The route tops just below the true summit, the apparently higher left-hand summit is in fact lower.

Re: Maja Shkurts

Hvala Rade! Mislim da si u pravu, sjecam se vrh koji ima 2499 u kartu al' do sada nisam znao njegova imena :)
Sada se osjecam da hteli smo prvo da silazimo kroz ovo V-sedlo medju njima do Ropojanu al' izgledalo je tesko i smo silazili desno od njega.
Jeli ovaj drugi vrh Maja Ladojvet?

I'll take your word for it!

Not surprisingly, the colours remind me of
a scene from Yosemite National Park,
even though this is probably "karst" and not
related to igneous intrusions, extrusions or
spherical erosion.

The lighting is not unlike that seen in the
'High Sierra' of California.

Thanks for dropping by, Larry! Yes that's karst limestone. The lightning in those mountains is indeed like at some of your pics, I just can't catch it with a camera properly :)
cheers

I can reveal (to you) two of my secrets:

Cloudy days and a good zoom lens.

Beautiful!

That's a very beautiful capture of this mountain! Was it sunset or sunrise?

Re: Beautiful!

Thanks Eric! This was sunset, a sunrise view (from a longer distance) you can see here.
