Skuta, its surroundings and...

The central position, the pyramidal SW aspect, the elegant ridges, the severe N wall with still a bit of a glacier - all this contributes to the fame and magic of Skuta (2532m), one of the three 2500ers in the range.

Skuta has two sides, the N side above the Ledine glacial terrace, and the S side above the Kamniška Bistrica valley.

The N and NE faces reach the Ledine plateau with a 500m drop above a disappearing glacier.

The south side of Skuta is divided in two parts: to the east, the karstic grounds Mali Podi below the Skuta SE wall, and to the west the karstic grounds Veliki Podi below the Skuta S wall. What separates these grounds is a prominent ridge leaving the summit southeastwards, elegantly twisting until it finally drops to Konec (Kamniška Bistrica).

The ridge which leaves the summit westwards becomes Štruca (the loaf) and further Dolgi hrbet (the long back).

The E ridge (the famous Rinka-Skuta Ridge) very slenderly reaches Kranjska Rinka.
