Ascent Trip Report

I started out in the morning from the camp site at lake Bled. I wanted to go via the Baji zobom cave to the Babji Zob peak. I walked to the highway and wanted to take a short-cut but someone stopped me and said I was about to pass military grounds! (Although there was no fence or much that made it look like a military installation, and the map showed roads and trails and didn't say anything about this...

Anyhow I found another route and walked on past Bohinjska Bela, over Kupljenik and as I recall it I tried to ascend the ridge from the west. However when I made it up to about 1000m altitude there had been a rock-slide, I tried to pass it but had never tried anything like this up until that point, and it was getting late in the afternoon so I turned around either on the stony part or just after I don't recall for certain.

So I made my way back down to the highway where I was picked up just around dinner time! ;)
