Slovenia: From Zajmenove peči (Kramarica) over "Zob" to Veliki vrh
For some time I had a wish to hike / climb the ridge, that leads from my home over Zajmenove peči, also called Kramarica, to Veliki vrh. A week ago (15865) Badžo ane me gave up, because of the bad weather, but today the forecast was great and we had a company, Ana and Marko. We started hiking from our home to Zajmenove peči and that was easy, although we climbed almost 1000 meters. The next section was to follow the ridge, on one side vertical on the other grown with dwarf mountain pine. Finally we arrived to the climbing section. First we abseiled from the "tooth" to the small saddle and then we climbed some loose rocks. Being on the ridge with a few hundred meters of vertical drop on each side didn't help much. In the end we all made it and finally we reached the solid ground and also the summit of Veliki vrh. Our final step was to follow the marked trail back to the valley and big tired smiles were on our faces, when Nada picked us up in the valley.

Time to follow the ridge, cut on one side and filled with dense dwarf mountain pine on the other with no path.
|Life on the loose ridge.|
|After an hour, we still weren't through.|
|Lost in green space.|
|Find the intruder.|
Same answer, still not there.
|Finally, after almost 2 hour we are done with first part and now the climbing can begin.|
|Our belay station.|
|Badžo was the first one to go down.|
|After the pee in the wall, everything seems easier.|
My turn. Triple checked everything, since I didn't abseil for a while.
