Started early in the morning from Vrsic pass. Climbed Prisojnik via the normal route (south route) and took the "Jubilejna pot" (Jubilee route) for the 2nd "okno", the Skrbina pass and Mt. Razor. Beautiful day and great views from a quite crowded summit. Lovely!
Started from the Erjavcova Koca hut, climbed the ferrata route through the window and scrambled to the peak. Cold Wind on the top but hardly any clouds. Views were amazing - we could see to the Adriatic See! Second time I climbed this superb mountain.
Through the West amazing Prisojnik window and by the W ridge. Cloudy, mild rain shower, strong wind on top an din the window. Very nice climb, ferrata parts are not that difficult.
Climbed from Vrshich Pass. Round trip in 6.5 hrs. Some significant exposure to rockfall high on the route.
On the same day as I arrived from Hungary, I aimed to visit Prisojnik. Started from Vrsic pass, ascended on the west ridge and returned on the south slope. I was alone, didn't meet a single person. The mountain was in clouds, and at the end of the tour it was raining. The route on the south slope - despite it is described as a very easy route - was not so easy due to some culoars filled with icy snow of June.
Climbed with two friends through prednje okno. Continued through zadnje okno and then returned to Vrsic. Awesome day!
From Vrsic pass by Kopiscar route to the summit. Magnificent ferrata and even more magnificent views... We were so grateful for this October "Indian summer".
I climbed Prisojnik 3 times: first time in august 2002, with my cousin and another Irena, we climbed through The Front Window.I had no idea it is so big.On the top our ways parted :for me, as a person who owns no car,any direction is good, so I decided to go by the Back Window /lovely ferrata,almost oversecured/ to Kriski Podi and down Sovatna to Vrata.I was really tired in the end.Second time, I went by Hanzova path.I have not met a soul the whole time.It was september, the weather was superb.I had the winter equipment, and I was really grateful to my boyfriend, who almost forced me to take everything.I was alone, and last hundred metres, just below the top /northern side/ the rock was coated in ice.I was out of options, so i took the icepick, and slowly and patiently cleaned my way to the top.!0 metres took me an hour, but I was safe. I descended on the south side.
In september 2009, I went again, also alone, from Vršic, through both windows, and descended to Kriski Podi once again.I hurt my knee,escaping some falling rock / the wall was full of hikers, whole Czech republic was there/ and they were very helpfull at the hut, thanks.
I tried to climb the Hanzova Pot in mid summer, but still there was a large snowfield to be crossed. I was lucky to find a group of climbers who where willing to help me cross. Unluckily though, just beneath the main summit the weather suddenly turned sour and I had to turn back. When I was almost halfway down the damned sky cleared, but I didn't had the time left to give it another shot. I suppose I have to come back then..
We started from Erjavčeva koča hut just below Vršič pass and ascended via Kopiščarjeva pot route. The route is very nice with few difficult details and beautiful passing through the Prednje okno window. Weather was nice but there was no broad view from the summit because of clouds and fog. We descended via southern route.
It was hard but really nice experience!
I started alone from Vrsic pass, but higher on the wall I met some Slovene guys, and a girl, so we continued together, and had a great time talking. There were clouds high up, as on the surrounding peaks, so there were no distant views, but finally I could take a shot of my Brocken Spectre. There was also some 40-50 km/h wind on the ridge.
The ferrata leading up is very nice, not continuously assured, but of moderate difficulty. Very enjoyable.
I had a great time on this mountain.
Vrsic - Kopiscarjeva pot - Prisojnik - Zadnje okno - Mlinarica - Vrsic...Superb mountain and climb. I was really exhausted after the climb, because of running some parts, especially in the Mlinarica valley.
It's great and long trip.
Normal south approach from Vrsic. That was my first visit to this area, and it was interesting how new horizons appear every minute when you're climbing from west to south and then up to summit.
From Vrsic, 1.611m, normal way
I was two times on the summit of Prisojnik.All two feratta`s was unforgetable experience for me.Hanza route is very hard ferrata.Most longer feratta in Slovenia ( 1100m - from start to summit ).
In the valleys this day was one of the clearest and hottest days in 2004 - on the western ridge before the summit we had lots of clouds, very strong and cold winds... ;) Anyway, a very interesting and diversified route. Don't underestimate the length of the route from "Okno" (Window) to the summit. Next time I will try the Hanza route.
Addition: On the 30th of October 2005 I did the Hanza route - and the weather & conditions were perfect! Great and diversified route, I can highly recommend it.
an interesting climb, hardly any view due to clouds but lots of beautiful flowers
A very nice ferratta. Just below the window we had some troubles with an icy snowfield which covered the secured ropes and pegs on the route. We had not the right equipment to cross it properly but after minutes of digging a safe path we succeeded. The summit views were disappointing due to sudden hazy conditions.
I was five times on the summit of Prisojnik, between 1973 and 1994. Ascended all usual routes from Vrsic side: Kopiscar, Hanza, by the Front window, Normal south ascent. In three cases we continued towards the E to the Rear window and Mlinarica saddle.
Ascent : From Koèa na Gozdu, hanza route - very beautiful route, breath taking view to the top (3 hours).
Descent : By the west window -Prednje okno - Vršiè (Erjavèeva koèa) - Koèa na gozdu.
