Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Ljubelj (Tržič), and then we continue driving in the direction of Celovec / Klagenfurt. After Ljubelj tunnel the road starts descending, and on the Austrian side we follow it to the first left turn, where old Ljubelj road branches off to the right. We park on an appropriate place by the crossroad, or we can also park higher on the Austrian side of the former border crossing Ljubelj.
Path description:
From the starting point, we go on the old Ljubelj road which is with a traffic sign closed for public traffic. The road at first moderately ascends over two zig-zags, and then continues along the stream to the ruins of former church of St. Lenart, by which stands a little bigger religious symbol. Here the road turns to the left and gradually goes away from the valley. From the road then nice views start opening on Palec and other surrounding peaks. The road ahead leads past a smaller crossroad, where we continue sharply right on "main" road, and then in a moderate ascent we cross steep slopes (danger of falling stones, or in the winter time avalanche and slipping). Higher, the road makes few more zig-zags, and then it brings us to a marked crossing, where we continue to the left where a marked footpath branches off towards Košutica / Loibler Baba. And further on the road is 10 more minutes of walking to the mountain hut Koča na Ljubelju.
From the crossing, we continue on a footpath through the forest, which is mostly ascending and after approximately 30 minutes of walking from the end of the road brings us on the border ridge. The path on the ridge isn't too steep but the slopes on which we walk are steep, therefore especially in wet a great caution is needed. In some parts we also get help from fixed safety gear and a ladder. Forest then becomes thinner and the path brings us on pastures of Grunt. Grunt is an indistinct peak on the path on which we walk.
Here from the right joins the path from concentration camp, and we continue straight on the ridge and by the border fence. The path then brings us to a crossing, where the path on a saddle Dovjakovo sedlo branches off to the left. And from the right joins the path from the mountain pasture Korošica. We continue straight on a more and more panoramic ridge. After that, the path becomes steep, and the forest is becoming thinner and gradually entirely vanishes. Further, we are ascending on a panoramic ridge, which is quite wide so that there is no significant danger. The path is then ascending through dwarf pines and it brings us on the Austrian side. Here we ascend through a short, but quite steep gully back on the ridge. Here we step on a steep with grass vegetated slopes on the Slovenian side (in wet dangerous for slipping). After this ascent over grass we come on an upper little exposed ridge which we then follow to the peak.
On the way: Koča na Ljubelju mountain hut (1370m)
