Perfect weather conditions.
Started from Vrata late afternoon. Slept over in Bivouac 4, then to to top, and back to Vrata valley. Strong north wind at the ridge.
Took almost 6 hours to get there from Pogacnikov Dom, and just over three to get back. On the way up I chose the western route, on the way down the eastern one, past the Bivak.
To date this was the best day I had in the national park.
Oh, and I love the food in Pogacnikov Dom!
Vrata - Bivak IV - Skrlatica - Pogacnikov Dom - Luknja - Dolicu Koca - Dom Planika - Triglav via Mali Triglav, descent via southwest part of Triglav back to Planika Dom - Final day to Triglavski Dom and descent by Prag to Aljazev Dom (Then some rest and relaxation at Bled, Ljubljana, and Terme Ptuj!) = a wonderful seven days in beautiful Slovenia!
Magnificent morning and sunrise as we started from bivouac IV all the way to the summit of Skrlatica. We returned back to bivouac around noon and continued toward Pogacnik hut. The weather completely changed and we had even some snow next morning... Beautiful end of autumn in Alps for this season!
I climbed Skrlatica in summer 2001, we slept at Aljaz hut, had some pancakes for breakfast, and summited Skrlatica at 11 o"clock.It took a small eternity to descend, it is a long way and I never really liked going down, knees start to hurt.
In august 2009, I did it again, this time alone.I slept at Pogacnik hut, and climbed Skrlatica by western route, a lonely trip, wonderful view on Dovski Gamsovec.The pass behind Dolkova Spica was really washed out, looked dangerous, and probably was.The last part, the only way up was full of people, and the top was crowded.I descended over Kriska stena to Krnica.That is the place where I really missed some pegs and similar.I kept looking up, it is hard not to throw rocks, and there were some inexperienced people behind, that freaks me out .A long and beautiful trip.
Climbed Skrlatica incl. Dolcova.
Marjan and I made good use of Indian summer in Julian Alps. We climbed Skrlatica from Vrata valley. When we returned we climbed Dolkova Spica and then decided to bivouac Bivak 4. Down in valley Vrata were almost whole day shade.
It was a sunnyweather, and I started ascent in 4.30h form Vrata valley alone.
It was still morning mood when I came to the biuvac IV. Very nice climbing to the summit and of to a drink in Pogaènikov dom.
Started at the road near Koca v Krnici hut, climbed the Kriska Stena face, then Dolkova Spica, descended into the basin and finally climbed Skrlatica. Only met a few people in the basin. Descended into Vrata Valley. For me this is the most beautiful day hike I did up till now.
I climbed it together with Anja Cerpnjak. It was was a long day. We climbed Skrlatica. Then we climbed Dolkova Spica and Kriz. We decided to skip Stenar (just a stone's throw away from the summit) cause it was getting too late. Very nice day!
It was a cloudy weather, and we were start ascent in 6:30h.
I was at the walley of vrata with my 2 friends, Vedrana and Ivana. They came to the biuvac at 1980m, and then I just carry on the summit. The ascent is not tehcically hard, but physically does. I made the summit in 3 and half hours.
