Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice, at the junction Podtabor we continue in the direction of Ljubelj and Tržič. We continue driving on a regional road in the direction of Ljubelj. At the last left turn on the Slovenian side, which is located approximately 500 meters after concentration camp, we turn right on a macadam road which we follow a little less than 100 meters to a little larger macadam parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on a cart track, until our path turns sharply right in the forest. Next follows a steeper ascent in numerous zig-zags. We soon get to panoramic bench, from where a view is opening up on peaks above Zelenica. From here for a short time through a dense plantation of young spruces to the mountain pasture, which is closed by a wooden fence. Now the ascent ends, we walk almost horizontal below the ridge of Grunt (1627 meters). In front of us is rising western side of Košutica. After few turns and light ascents follows a shorter descent. When we come to a crossing, we turn left (signpost Koča na Ljubelju; on the right path we soon reach the mountain pasture Korošica). From there steeper on a cart track to the border broad ridge, where from the left joins the footpath from old Ljubelj border crossing. We turn right and we continue steeper on dwarf pined broad ridge. We soon reach the next crossing, where a signpost points us left towards the saddle Dovjakovo sedlo. When we cross the border (grazing) fence, we continue almost horizontal below the northern walls of Ljubeljska Baba. When we bypass a bigger boulder, we have to overcome also a shorter steeper section and we are already standing on a saddle Dovjakovo sedlo. There we turn right and we continue in the direction towards northeastern slope of Ljubeljska Baba. Faded signs point us towards dwarf pined rib. On the left side, we ascend to its edge, where we turn left and we continue to a steep gully. There we ascend past a smaller tower (II. grade of climbing) to the next gully, through which we ascend below the upper part, where the steepness decreases. To the top separates us a shorter ascent over quite crumbly flanks, which are overgrown by grass and rare dwarf pines. At orientation we all the time get help from faded red dots. To the summit we step right below the new cross.
On the way: Dovjakovo sedlo (1728m)
