Alone on the peak  Sucess!

On route #2 as indicated in the description of Kanin on SP, so from above Bovec, from the parking place 1075 m, near B station of cable car, approaching the peak from south-east direction. It was a very hot day, 28 Celsius degree in average on the whole route, despite the high elevation. I met a few people en-route. I think that all them were part of an international team doing some work at the entrance of a cave that can be found on the high plateau of Kanin. One of them climbed the peak. I met another guy on the peak, but he approached it from the cable car. He left quickly, and so I was left alone on the peak. I enjoyed the loneliness on the peak for 10 minutes, and then I started descending. For me it was a big surprise to be alone here: I expected to meet a smaller crowd here like it is usual on the major peaks of the Julian Alps.

Rosojanska, the high path

few years ago me and my cousin did a part of The high Rosojanska tour.We went up from Bovec with cable car, passing to P.Skalar hut / it was early in july, the caretaker arrived with us, there was still snow/.We started with Vrh Laske Planje, and Kanin is the next on the way.From there real difficulties start, very athletic ferratas.We finished at Zrd and slept at Marusic bivouac.We had a plan, climbing Kanin from the north once more, but my cousin did not have the winter eqiupment, and it was really necessary.I had, but we went instead to Bela pec and Prestreljenik.Kanin is really marvellous, dramatic from north, a huge fortress. A trip to remember

Route Climbed: Normal route  Sucess!

We climbed Visoki Kanin via normal route (eastern approach) from cable car. The day before there was a heavy storm in the region with lots of rain, snow and wind, so the next day everything was clear and we had a fantastic view from the summit! We descended same way back.

Alta Via Resiana - Northwest ridge - Ferrata Grasselli  Sucess!

Starting from Biv. Marussich, we climbed the northwestern ridge of Canin (part of the route Alta Via Resiana). We had nice sunny weather, just a little cooling breeze, and met no one except the goats... and while on Canin's summit ridge, we spotted some people on Picco di Carnizza / Vrh Krnice, but they returned back down on Ferrata Grasselli (the steepest part of Carnizza's ridge).
This route is the most beautiful, but the most difficult, and the most exposed of all Canin routes. Cable assurance is almost complete on the first part (Ferrata Grasselli), but after there are only few places assured, and there are plenty of very airy and unstable parts, so some experience and sure feet are a must, and taking a 30 m rope for belaying is advisable.

Alta Via Resiana / Visoka Rosojanska Pot

We made a two day trip to the South Ridge of Kanin, but due to an exposed and unstable part of the ridge, we had to turn around just before the final ridge section of the summit.

Via Ferrata "Via Julia"  Sucess!

Solo climb, cloudy weather. I missed Via Julia, and climbed nearly to the beginning of an other ferrata, and it took me 1 hour to get back to Via Julia... Clouds descended on the north face by the time I started on the ferrata. It was already late, around 15:30. Reached the summit in about 1 hour. Gray fog, visibility was only 50 m. Took the normal route back down to Gilberti hut, it was a very long and tiring descent, darkness fell on me somewhere near the cable car below Prestreljenik. Altogether the tour took 13 hrs from Sella Nevea - Via Julia - Canin summit - normal route - Prestreljenik saddle - Sella Prevala - Gilberti hut.
