From Vellacher Kotschna to Jezersko sedlo, Kriz/Koroska Rinka 2.433m, Kranjska Rinka and back.
in 2001 I summited Rinke /Kriz and Kranjska / from Okreselj, going through Turski Zleb, then Rinke and descent to Jezersko and Savinjsko Sedlo.We missed a shortcut, a ferrata leading directly to Okreselj.
Next time , in july 2007, I climbed all Rinke on my own, from Okreselj and then to Kriz and Kranjska Rinka, followed by Stajerska.Mala Rinka is a small detour from marked path, we climbed it once again in october 2008, there was snow, so we did not proceed.
In 2009 we climbed Kriz once again.We almost missed the turn, the winter destroyed the path and the blazes, the gulley looked dangerous.It was the next gulley.It is my favourite ferrata in Kamniske, steep and dramatic.We descended to Kamniska Bistrica down Zmavcarji.
It took us 3 hours to climb Turski zleb. Over 2 meters of snow in Zleb.
Nobody was going before us that day, so we needed to make a new path in snow. Luckily two Slovenian skiers catch with us after 2 hours and continued infront of us. That was helpfull.
Beautifull sunny day, with a moderate south wind on the top. Evertything below 1200 meters was in the sea of clouds.
Climbed just first two Rinka peaks, because of lack of time.
It was easy and fast way down through the snow.
4 1/2 hours up, and 2h down.
Summitted all four peaks of Rinke (Mala Rinka, Stajerska Rinka, Koroska Rinka, Kranjska Rinka). We had nice weather, just the wind blew quite hard, chilling strongly. It even blew my sunglasses off (because they were above my balaclava :)), but fortunately I could run after them...
Good snow conditions, no avalanche danger.
We met with only 2 people from Turski Zleb to Rinke, and back.
