At the end of September the weather is usually still good and you should not have any snow though it can be cool and windy on the summit ridge. The route up the south ridge is straight foward and well marked with piles of stones. From the parking at Hoya del Portillo it is a long day, but if you are fit and used to the mountains you should not have any problems. Take food, lots of water and wind/waterproof clothes.

Latest submitted climbing notes
We climbed Razor on 7/07/2018 from Zadnijca in Trenta. The trail from Trenta is great for ascent as well as descent. Although it is fairly steep, it goes through the forest and it is fairly smooth underfoot, with occasional rocks scattered here and there. Only the final section, 20 minutes before Pogačnikov Dom, is a bit tedious as it is covered with the mixture of big and small rocks. There is only one way leading to Razor from the hut and it goes via scree slope (hiking poles useful, especially on the way down). Some parts of the route are protected by cables but these are not difficult hence ferrata kit is not required (helmet is a must due to falling stones). Before approaching Razor one can take a detour to a neighbouring Planja (waymarks on the rocks point in direction of Planja on the left and Razor on the right). Upon reaching Sedlo Planja, it is about 45 minutes to the top of Razor. There are metal rungs for the last few meters of the route and this is the only moment where ferrata kit comes in handy (climb can be done without it yet this section calls for a good head for heights. Descent can be done via the same route or from Sedlo Planja towards Vršič (it takes 6 hrs).
There are a few basic hiking tracks around Cradle Mountain but you have to pay to get further up the track to the Lake Sinclair area.
Hiking around cradle mountain can get very cold and rainy in winter. During summer is a nicer time for hiking if you are not too interested in snow.
The hiking tracks are well maintained and have decent signs with track lengths and times.
Live weather observations from meteo stations
For each mountain we keep a list of nearby meteo stations reporting current weather observations many times per day. Gather all available weather information before heading out to the mountains for climbing, walking, mountaineering or any other outdoor pursuit.
