Zagradac (2217m) - gateway to the Moraca Mountains

After climbing Stozac for the first time, a whole vista opened up before us of mountains I had never seen before and which immediately drew me towards them. The whole area is frustratingly far away from roads that I would dare take my own battered Golf II, so the first foray involved parking the car near Lake Kapetanovo and walking along the trail at the opposite end of the lake from where the road approaches the lake. The area is full of valleys which involved a lot of climbing up steep banks, and then finding that one had to then climb down in order to climb up further. One interestingly shaped peak caught our attention, Zagradac, whose top looked like a UFO had crashed into it, but which presented a problem in finding a way right to the top. However, trusting that all would become clear once we reached there, we persisted until we got to a seemingly impenetrable cliff girding the peak. However, we found a path under a rock overhang where we were able to find a very steep, but accessible grassy area which led to the very top. The view was spectacular and joined up the area we had come from with the Savnik–Boan–Crkvina road. From the top of this peak there is a wonderful view along a ridge which stretches right from Vojinovac to the jagged peaks of Tali.
