Bravo kamil!

It's a great peak you climbed. Wish you it proves that you were the first one!

Re: Bravo kamil!

Hvala Vid, good to see you here :) The full story will follow, but shortly - while I was climbing, Gordan found an old piece of steel cable (via ferrata-like) in another part of this mountain face, not too high above the ground, so maybe the Albanians climbed there in the past. Heh, just another mystery of Prokletije :)
