From TR at Vrsic pass with Alexei O. No views - rain/snow all day.
Climbed the ferrata route to the top. Didn't find it too hard. Continued to Velika and Zadnja Mojstrovka before returning to Vrsic. Excellent weather and superb views. I could see Grossglockner, Ankogel and Hochalmspitze!
This day in the morning I already had an unsuccessful attempt to ascend Krn. There I returned after 930 m useless elevation gain, due to bad weather conditions.
I felt the day incomplete without reaching any summit, so in the afternoon I decided to drive to Vrsic pass to find something there. I aimed to climb Mala Mojstrovka. Started the ascent from 1550 m altitude - and decided to stop and return in 1885 altitude. The conditions were far from perfect: first of all here there was a too long scree slope covered by icy snow, and I didn't have crampons and poles with me. And it was in clouds/fog. And I was alone and didn't see anybody on my route. And it was already 6 p.m.
Finally I visited the uninteresting peak of Slemenova Spica in the evening.
We climbed this fun ferrata towards the end of our week of ascents in the Julian Alps - our sixth climb in seven days! We also made the trip over to Velika Mojstrovka, which we had all to ourselves. Lots of fun exposure on the way up, unpleasant scree back down to the pass on the other side.
this is one of my first secured paths, I was very nervous because we had my boyfriends son /then aged 14/ with us, two cousins and him, and I was afraid something would happen to him.He was then already a member of alpine school, but still...When we reached the summit, we walked along the ridge towards velika Mojstrovka.And downhill, that long scree, my first; what an enjoyment!Lovely day
Very nice day, some snow already in the ferrata, but nothing too hard. It was quite cold in shade during the day, but very pleasant.
Recommend it! :)
Very nice ferrata...weather was perfect and the view was just spectacular...all major peaks of Julian Apls were visible (Škrlatica, Triglav, Razor, Kanjavec, Prisojnik, Jalovec, Mangart...). We descended via normal route.
Ascent and descent normal route. Whole northwall ferrata was in ice:-(
Quite easy ferrata.
Climbed on Sunday, so there were many people on Hanzova pot. Otherwise nice ferrata. We decided to don't go to summit of Velika Mojstrovka because of cloudy weather. Descent to Vrsic pass was a little boring.
Ascent from Vrsic saddle via Hanzova pot, descent via Normal route to Vrsic saddle.
I was some 13 times on Mojstrovka, mostly on Mala, but did also crossing and skiing from Velika and Zadnja. The last time I was with my friends from Croatia - with my SP friend Sasa Gospic (Velebit) and his team. Nice day and only a moderately good skiing (crust).
Up to now I was four times on the summit of Mala Mojstrovka with my girlfriend Irene:
14. Oct. 2007: Nice day during indian summer, some snow already in the ferrata, but nothing tricky compared to 2004
26. Oct. 2005: Perfect weather, perfect conditions, our fastest ascent
24. Oct. 2004: Beautiful weather, but lots of snow in the ferrata, which we haven't expected (therefore quite difficult ascent without ice-axe and crampons... ;))
09. Oct. 2004: Nice ferrata, very foggy during descent -> difficult navigation, because there is no real "track" on the upper part of the normal route
Ascent: from Vrsic pass to Vratica then nice ferrata Hanzova Pot .
Descent: Southern route which was very annoying and therefore is not recommended.
Not exellent weather but nice view, nice snow.
This is always a nice tour for the beginning. Which means that there are sometimes impolite beginners there.
This was my first test summit after a herniated vertebral disc the year before. Everything went fine, wonderful weather, beautiful views.
From the Vrsis pass in the east face and over the fine ravine to the top of MalaMojstrovka. Fresh snow and beautiful but cold weather! Nice for skiing!
Vrsic pass - Pripravniska couloir and then skiing back on Vrsic pass.
Beautiful weather, first snow in this Winter season...just nice!
I do not remember the route name. It has been around UIAA grade IV. It starts a bit right of the ferrata and halfway crosses it. Part of us decided to stop there and use the ferrata for descent. Quite good a decision, because the rest of us got wet in a thunderstorm.
