… 2011, mit ein paar Fotos vom Gipfel:

Gleich vorneweg: nach dem Start bei Trenta(webCam) — im Soca-Tal, und nach 6 Stunden komfortabler Wege, sind die letzten 300m zum Gipfel (Weg ueber die Tržaška koča na Doliču Huette) mit Eisengriffen, Drahtseilen und einigen Trittstufen ausgestattet. Sie sind 2011 sehr gut instand und machen einen normalen Fernweg daraus, man ist auch kaum ausgesetzt. Ohne diese Hilfen waeren die letzten Meter z.T. Grad 3 zu klettern, mit einer schwierigen 2m Querung (4-5), wo man sich aber nur am Seil anhalten muss. (starting near Trenta(webCam) — in Soca-Valley, and after 6 hours of comfortable trail, the last 300m to the summit on the way over the Tržaška koča na Doliču hut are equipped with iron grips, cables and some ladder elements. They are well maintained 2011 and make a normal trail of it, and you are hardly exposed to look down deep. Without these helpers, the last meters would need to be climbed degree 3, with a difficult traversing (4-5) where only holding the cable is necessary to make it an easy way) (après le start auprès de Trenta(webCam) — dans la vallée-Soca, — et 6 heures de chemins comfortables — les derniers 300m jusqu’au sommet (au chemin passant la Tržaška koča na Doliču cabane) sont équipés avec des poignes de fer, des câbles et même des pièces d’échelles qui en font un chemin normal. On n’est guère exposé à regarder en bas. Sans ces aides, ces derniers mètres seraient degré 3, avec un traversant difficile (4-5) mais où il suffit se tenir au câble.

Viele gehen (auf diesem Weg) den “grossen” Triglav hinauf — Start bei Trenta(webCam) — nahe Kranjska Gora — und den “kleinen” Triglav  (ins Vrata Tal) hinunter: beim Hinuntergehen ist jeder Weg 1 Grad schwieriger; der kleine Triglav ist etwas leichter. (Many people go up the “great” Triglav — starting in Trenta near Kranjska Gora — and down the “small” Triglav to the Vrata Valley: when going down, every trail is 1 degree more difficult; the small Triglav is easier) (beaucoup de gens montent par le “grand” Triglav — démarrant à Trenta près de Kranjska Gora — et descendent par le “petit” Triglav: pour descendre, chaque chemin est plus difficile 1 degré; le petit Triglav est un peu plus facile)

Der umgekehrte Weg, zuerst zum “kleinen” Triglav, beginnt im Vrata (Tal nahe Kranjska Gora), verlangt weniger Hoehenunterschied aber eine laengere Strecke mit Eisengriffen, Drahtseilen und Leitern. (the other way around, first to the “small” Triglav, starts in the Vrata (valley near Kranjska Gora) and needs less height difference but a longer portion with iron grips, cables and ladders) (l’autre chemin démarrant au Vrata (vallée près de Kranjska Gora) vaut moins de différence d’hauteur mais une portion plus longue de poignées de fer, des câbles et d’échelles)

Man muss entweder sehr frueh starten oder in einer Huette uebernachten. (you need to start early or stay overnight in one of the huts) (il faut démarrer tôt ou rester la nuit dans une des cabanes)

     
  

Die Huetten rundherum sind freundlich und sauber und z.T. mit Kamin durch das Matratzenlager warm gehalten; Wasser ist Mangelware: ca. 5,- eur pro 1,5 Liter Flasche rechnen! Das Wasser fuer Kueche und Crew muss mit dem Heli (!) um 1200,-/m3 geliefert werden, und die Waschgelegenheiten sind deshalb spartanisch (the mountain huts around the Triglav are friendly and clean, some of them kept warm by the chimney going through the mattress dormitory; water is rare and precious: calculate approx. eur 5,- for the 1,5 Liter bottle! Water for kitchen and crew must be flown up with Helicopters (!) for 1200,-/300gal, and washplaces are spartanic therefore) (les cabanes sont invitantes, conviviales, amicales et bien nettoyees, quelquefois gardées au chaud par la cheminee qui passe le dortoir; l’eau est chère et précieuse, il faut calculer ca. 5,- eur pour la bouteille de 1,5 Liter! Mais l’eau pour cuisine et pour la crew est livrée par hélicopter (!) à 1200,-/m3, et c’est pourquoi les lavatoires sont spartiates)

Hier ein paar Fotos von unterwegs und vom Gipfel: (some underways and summit pics, q.photos du chemin et du sommet)

  
Sometimes the way looks more dangerous (left) than it is (right). The Trenta trail has 1m to 1,5m width all the way up, and its inclination is constantly approx. 15-20 degrees.
7 hours for 2244m is a realistic time even for medium/low fitness.


These excrements seem not to be from cows nor mules nor horses but could stem from a brown bear having had a vegetables meal; they were not dry (on a humid but not rainy day) and with approx. 2 kgs too much for smaller animals;
They were found on the cart trail shortly after the start towards Triglav, in the forest where cows or mules or horses could be expected of course; mule/horse excrements indeed look quite similar but when they fall apart, they are usually dry:

Excrements of  Cows (left=dry, right=wet)  look entirely different; 

.

 

These excrements of Mules/Horses  usually are quite dry (left picture) when they look similar to the above picture; 

.

Brown Bears eat plants and animals, as Human Beings do; their excrements can have various shapes, too;
these brown bear excrements look like from a meat meal;
.

.


Black Bears are smaller; here an example of black bear feces;  

.

.

The feces we found (above) could stem from a brown bear having had a vegetables meal.
People say there are bears; it might be adviseable not to go alone during evening/night;
it is said that bears fear men but dont be the first exception to that 🙂


In every case, it is worth the way. (click the pictures to zoom them)

  
But real dangers do exist in the mountains: every year after the snowmelt, millions of tons of rocks roll down the slopes. (click the pictures to zoom them)

.

And They have a somewhat destructive energy.

.

After the “normal” trail, at the last 350m near the summit, there are (right pic) fair warnings that the trail is dangerous; if you are not sure of your step or hold 
(or in case of thunderstorm and flashes) you should certainly not go there.

(most of the alpine tours and trails have passages with iron grips, clamps, cables and ladders; these passages correspond to a climbing degree 1: you should always maintain 3 secure points — 1 hand & both feet, or both hands & 1 foot — and search for the next grip/hold/stand only with the 4th hand/foot; additional securing equipment for trails is sold in intersport and other sport shops;
apart the trails, climb only with experienced groups)


Bergfinken (bramblings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brambling, Pinsons du Nord) occur in swarms of 10 and more birds accompanied us near the summit


Getting up too late in the morning meant having clouds from 10 am.
We should have started from a hut at 6 am to be at the summit at 9 am:
a full 360 degree panorama would have been the reward.
(the alternative would have been to start at 2 am in Trenta or Vrata)

Some were quicker but the summit was still free of clouds.

* * * * *

The panorama around the summit was only cloudfree from West …  

… over Northwest …

… to North …

… and NorthEast.

It was beautiful

but 50% behind the clouds 🙂

Bergdohle http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpendohle (chough, crave a bec rouge; le bec est jaune, en effet) wondered who would walk up there …

… and some of the rocks look like Marmor (marble, marbre) in the midst of an almost white & sometime rusty limestone desert up there …

.

.

.

… while, on our way down, we found this spot (of several meters) of almost shining blue rockstone, colored by Feldspat (EN: Feldspar; FR: Feldspath; ES: Feldespato) as it seems

.

.
 

A really recommendable tour, but 2200 m (!) above the valley (630m – 2864m), so it is better to make only the 1500m to one of the huts …

… at the first day & start early (!) in the morning the next day to go the summit.

And: it is never a mistake to be too cautious and to take the turn back, if you are in doubt. (it is just a pity not to start)

Und: es ist nie ein Fehler, zu vorsichtig zu sein und im Zweifel umzukehren. (es ist nur schade, nicht loszugehen)

Et: c’est jamais une faute de faire trop d’attention et de retourner en cas de doute. (c’est justement dommage de ne pas démarrer)
