Climbing Wall at the Vranja jama Cave


42029. Uroš, principal of today's DZRJL climbing practice



42030. Klemen, guided by Matija (above), started to install the anchors for the practice - top down approach is the most convenient here.



42037. Practice of rescuing an incapacitated caver getting to him on the same rope, seen from afar ...



42031. ... and from close distance - here Garmin is about to save Klemen.



42035. Andrej helped the climbing practice with friendly advice and encouraging word.



42032. Beki, preparing a pumpkin brought by Andrej for barbecue, and Jure



42036. Pumpkin slices, ready to be baked



42033. Matija opted for a ...



42034. ... non-vegan snack of čevapčiči.



42039. Matija came by bicycle, from Škofja Loka, 61 km away.



Članska vas Village


42038. Matija arrived yesterday and so Članska vas stove was nicely warm when Klok called to make this snack of cooked red lentils, bread, black cumin oil, garlic, aronia juice with hot water and red currant jam. After the snack the warmth from the stove combined with wide bench by Žan, now furnished with soft thick woolen cover by Modrc, was a temptation impossible to resist. Half an hour went by in a flash.



Skednena jama Cave


42041. Klok visited the cave for the second time in the afternoon, to find an interesting, fossil resembling feature, about 3 m above ground, on the wall depicted here. The headlight was poor on the first occasion so no success, the second time the batteries were changed, illumination was OK, but still no tangible result. Next time a print of Žan's old photo, with all the surrounding details, will increase the chances ...



Članska vas Village


42042. Rain drops on low hanging tree branch, on the trail back from the cave to Članska vas



42043. Days are getting shorter so the supper took place in tea candle light: cooked potato and carrot, cooked quail eggs, compote of apples and plums, bread, half a khaki, ajvar (not shown). Ajvar, by Andrej, was excellent, and the compote, later tasted by Matija, also obtained a positive score. It was after he and two members of the morning climbing practice (including Klemen) returned, at dusk, from an additional trip to Najdena jama cave. They went all the way to Slap (The Waterfall) in the Borisov rov tunnel and the cave was still quite dry.
