Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Kočevje, and then we look for street Podgorska ulica (which from the main road branches off to the right - direction of driving towards Delnice). At the end of the mentioned street we will notice signposts and by them a nicely settled parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we walk to a well-marked crossing, and then we continue left in the direction of the path Grajska pot (right path Kalanova pot). At first, we bypass a house, and then the path turns to the left and it ascends diagonally through a grassy slope. The path then goes into the forest, where in a moderate ascent continues on a relatively wide cart track. Higher, the cart track crosses a forest road and gradually changes into a little steeper footpath. A well-marked path higher few more times crosses the road and then it brings us to a crossing, where we continue slightly left in the direction towards Livoldski vrh and castle Fridrihštajn (right Mestni vrh and mountain hut Koča pri Jelenovem studencu). Still well-marked path higher crosses a road (left Livoldski vrh) and only a little further splits into two parts. We continue right in the direction of the wall Fridrihštajnska stena (left normal path) on the path which soon brings us to the entry of a climbing part of the path (here marked path towards Požgani hrib branches off to the right).
A well-secured path at first crosses exposed ledge, and then turns left and it ascends vertically upwards. With the help of numerous stemples and steel cables, we ascend a level higher, and then the path turns to the right, where it crosses otherwise secured, but very exposed ledge. After that, the path once again turns to the left and in a moderate ascent after few additional strides, it brings us to the summit.
