Access to starting point:
From Razdrto we drive on highway towards Nova Gorica or vice versa and we go on exit Vipava. We follow the road ahead, towards Vipava and Gradišče. In the village Gradišče we notice first mountain signposts, which we follow to a larger parking lot by camp Kamp Tura above the village Gradišče.
Path description:
From the parking lot we go past information boards in direction of Gradiška Tura and Abram. At first relatively wide path leads through the forest and it soon brings us to a crossing on a smaller clearing. Here the path branches off to the right towards St. Nikolaj, and we continue left towards Gradiška Tura.
From the crossing path quickly brings us to a scree and then it turns to the right. Further we walk on a marked path and we still follow the signs for Gradiška Tura. And by the path we will also notice signs, which mark climbing routes. The path then starts ascending a little steeper and occasionally beautiful views start to open up on Vipava valley. Path, which here runs by bushes and through low forest brings us to the next marked crossing where Furlan route on Gradiška Tura branches off to the left.
We continue right where signposts for Gradiška Tura on Otmar route point us to. After that path runs on a little steeper slope where we also get help from some safety catches. On such path we then reach panoramic Oltar.
From Oltar we still continue on the steep path, which is in parts secured with a steel cable or iron spikes and we are soon again at a crossing. This time normal easier path on Gradiška Tura branches off to the left, and we go right towards Otmar route. After a shorter crossing then path brings us below the wall where there is the beginning of secured climbing path.
In front of the entry into a climbing part of the path we equip ourselves with a helmet and self belay set. It is also recommended to use climbing gloves. At initial part, which is the hardest part of the path we at first steeply ascend on numerous stemples steeply upwards. Path then turns to the left and then follows a very exposed crossing of a wall where we still get help from numerous stemples. After the crossing path turns right upwards and ascends also over a shorter overhang (difficulty to C).
Above the overhang there follows a slightly less demanding ascent on stemples, which brings us on a ledge by the tree. Above the tree we are then ascending on still relatively steep slope with enough steps and holds where besides steel cables we occasionally also get help from few stemples or into a rock carved footholds. Path here runs a little to the right and later turns left upwards and it brings us on a less steep terrain where secured path for a short time ends. Here from the left joins also a diagonal footpath from the top of Furlan route.
We continue on panoramic footpath, which quickly again brings us to the steel cables. At first we ascend by the steel cable on rugged rocks and after that there again follows an ascent on stemples with a help of which we ascend also over a very short overhang. Path then turns to the right and then follows a little exposed crossing, which brings us to the next stemples. With a help of numerous stemples we ascend on a wall upwards. We continue again a little to the right and path brings us on a little less steep and more vegetated terrain. Here we are then for quite some time ascending by the steel cable on a slightly less demanding slope and a little higher the secured path for a short time again ends.
We continue right on a footpath, which past memorial plates brings us to the last part of the secured path.
Here we again steeply ascend with a help of stemples and then we are for some time quite steeply ascending on a wide outside corner. In the last part follows an ascent on a short chimney and after that secured path ends.
At the end of the secured path where from the left joins also an easier path we continue straight and after approximately 10 minutes of ascent we reach panoramic peak.
Described path is categorized as very demanding mountain path, and for ascent there it is mandatory to use self belay set and a helmet. In the initial part, which reaches difficulty level C in the overhang also some strength in arms is needed. Secured path is otherwise long 450 meters and has 240 meters of altitude difference.
