Almost five years since last time I climbed Vrtača by the Southeast ridge route. The route was barely in conditions so it was more difficult this time but still very nice by any standards. Raging wind was blowing new snow all over some pretty dangerous ground so a safe winter route was tough to find in the whole of Slovenia. But this one was a jackpot. Just below the top of Vrtača we met some ten Slovenian mountain rescuers on a training tour. They had just climbed up the Y gully – our plan A for a descent route. Good conditions confirmed, there was nothing more than to head down. Yet another wonderful winter day in the mountains!
