Thanks very much Myzantrope!
Is it true that Trzaska koca na Dolicu was destroyed by an avalanche last Spring?
Thanks Simpson. That's very unfortunate. It was a nicely located (but obviously dangerously located) hut.
Can you perhaps tell me the difficulty of the route onto the Triglav, starting from dom planika hut. I see there are two routes, one via Mali triglav and one via skribrina. Does anyone know the french quotation for these routes?
Hoping to hear from you!
If going on Triglav from Planika hut, choose the variant via Mali Triglav. The other one (via Skrbina=notch) is exposed to more objective danger - rock fall. It is harder to be maintained and so more difficult than the route via Mali Triglav.
The route Planika - Mali Triglav - Triglav is an easy, well secured ferrata. Many places are exposed, but the real danger comes from crowds on that route (also polished rocks).
Regarding french quotation, can you please help me with a reference - a link or similar, so that I know what you mean.
Thanks for your reaction. Concerning the quotation I am familiar with 4 systems, the austrian, german, dutch and french. Austrian starts with A for the easiest and Goes on to E+ for the most difficult ones, Germans uses carabiners starting with 1 and going up to 6. The Dutch system starts with very easy and goes on to very difficult, the french system starts with F-PD and goes on to ED
I found this on a german site
Does it seem correct to you?
yes, it seems correct. But that's the rating of the route from Kredarica hut, not from Planika hut. Still, their difficulty is very comparable, so also from Planika (via Mali Triglav) it would be B/C.
By the way, I never went up from Planika via Skrbina. Only read that it's more difficult.
...is to summit this most impressive and bountiful peak. My grandparents were both born in beautiful Slovenia and I by exploring its high country I too will feel like I am sharing the same headstrong heritage. Thank you for this extremely detailed introduction to the mountain and the Julian Alps.
