Weather forecast was great and the result was another hiking trip with Nada, again with events of climbing. Our chosen mountain was Brana and our climbing part was "Zgornji steber s šijo Brane", (IV-/II-III, 160m + 200m), an upper pillar on the eastern side of mountain Brana with the Šija ridge.
The access was quite long, since we had to ascend 1200 meters, but it was worth it. We had a nice and easy climb in the end, with a finish beer at the "Kamniška koča na Kamniškem sedlu mountain hut" and a night descent back to the valley.
