Ascent Trip Report

During a week of vacation in the small village of Pisak on the Dalmatian coast together with Karin's parents and brother with family, the two of us left our quite nice rented house early one morning and drove for two hours to the hamlets of Glavas, close to the Bosnian border. From the old bus shelter with the faded route map we started to climb Dinara. Accompanied by two tame and - actually - nice dogs (which we, by the way, named Zadar and Pisak) we rather quickly ascented to approximately 1,700 meters where we were met by heavy showers and thunderstorms. The bad weather continued why the descent became really scary as we hurried down the mountain. The thunder echoed around us and the lightnings struck far closer than we would have preferred...
