Photographer's Note

under Lastovec (1841 m) near Ojstrica.
Branko posing here.

OJSTRICA (2,350 m) is the highest mountain in the eastern part of the central ridge of Kamniške and Savinjske Alps. Its narrow, pyramid-shaped rocky summit can be seen from the Savinjska Valley and the Ljubljana basin, as well as from the nearby and faraway peaks as a pointed spire, to which it owes its name. However, it is from Logarska Valley and Robanov kot, the two most beautiful Alpine valleys in Slovenia and in Europe in general, that its rock walls appear in all their beauty.
Ojstrica's ridges stretch towards east, west and north. The eastern, Kocbek's ridge links Ojstrica with Mala Ojstrica (2,017 m) and extends farther on to Veliki vrh (2,110 m), which rises above Robanov kot. Kocbek's ridge is named after Fran Kocbek, who climbed Ojstrica over this very ridge in 1894 together with Jurij Planinšek from Luče. Ojstrica's western ridge descends to the jag of Škarje (2,141 m), which separates it from Lučka Baba (2,244 m). Its northern ridge descends from the top toward Škrbina (1,800 m), an indentation between Ojstrica and its neighbour to the north, Krofička (2,083 m). Ojstrica's gullied southern slope descends to the vast green hollow of Korošica (http://www.posta.si).
