Here, some photos I took on Saturday when I climbed V.Draški vrh (2243m) First some pics from the valley. I drove car up to parkings at Uskovnica (na Lomu, 1061m) where I started at about 8:30. At Uskovnica it was opening party for the new alpine club hut (the old one was demolished to be completely renovated) From there I took the path on the left, across Čiprje (a steep slope that's constantly sliding down, the old path was destroyed ~2018, the new path apparently wasn't completely open yet – but I managed to get across the short part that wasn't ready yet) V.Draški Vrh is the pyramid shaped peak in the middle on 1st pic, on the right in 4th pic. The wide one next to it is Tosc, the smaller pyramid is Ablanca.

When you cross Čiprje, you have to climb the slope of Tosc to the main path leading to Triglav. There were some marmot holes at the side of the path, haven't seen any marmots though. Also flowers. I believe those are [i]Trollius europaeus[/i] and some kind of forget-me-nots

>>177928 The pass in 2nd pic is between V.Draški and Ablanca, the path leading to Triglav from Pokljuka goes over there. I had to get to the pass, and then go straight up along the ridge to the summit. Unmarked, but can't miss it, since it's the ridge. There's no real climbing sections but there's a bit of exposed rock before you get there. From the top of V.Draški and Tosc it's great views towards Triglav, the highest mountain in Slovenia, and down the Krma valley. Usually V.Draški doesn't have many people climbing it, but this time there were already 2 girls there, so I spilled my spaghetti.

I took the other way of descent, to the east, down into the valley of Konjščica pasture (named after horses, but today they have cows there – not yet up there this year though – and local cowherd will sell milk products for hikers all summer. But since no cows yet I just had some homemade pear brandy.) Then back to Uskovnica, check out the cows, see how the party is proceeding, eat some stew, check out the new club hut (it's still nice but maybe a bit too touristy for my taste – but hey it's practically down in the valley, so it's k), and drive back down to the valley.
