The descent from the summit returns to the top of Turski žleb (1h) and down the Via Ferrata (B,C) back to Okrešelj and the Logar Valley (2–3h).


Is it really necessary to put all the ascent and descent points here, the others don't include this much info they just have a description. This part is covered below in the tour itinerary so this is just unnecessary repetition.
These are presumably climbing gradings but since they are used fir the first time here it would make sense to explain them, and also to make it clear why there is both B and C here.

 

Also, below its written (B,C) but here it is written differently so its inconsistent.
