Access to starting point:
We leave Gorenjska highway at exit Hrušica and follow the road ahead in the direction of Kranjska Gora. Just a little before the village Dovje the road which goes to Mojstrana (Vrata, Kot and Krma) branches off to the left. We follow the road ahead in the direction of valley Vrata and we drive on that road to the large parking lot near Aljažev dom.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on a macadam road which after 3 minutes of walking brings us to a crossing at Aljažev dom. We continue straight in the direction of Triglav, Luknja and Pogačnikov dom (right Škrlatica) on a wide path, which goes behind the chapel (on the right side) and Aljažev dom (on the left side) into a lane of a forest. A wide tourist - walking path past the winter bivouac brings us out of the forest, where in front of us we notice the famous wedge (monument dedicated to fallen partisans mountaineers). We continue straight (left Tominšek route) on the path which returns into the forest and it brings us to the next crossing, where we continue straight (right Stenar, Pogačnikov dom). The path ahead is ascending by the torrent to the crossing, where we go left on Čez Prag route (straight Luknja and Plemenice) and after few steps of descent we cross a torrent. On the other side path quickly brings us to steep part of the path, where iron spikes help us. With the help of safety catches path quickly brings us level higher to less demanding part of the path. Next we are ascending with increasingly beautiful views on the path which is occasionally surrounded by dwarf pines. Easy part of the path soon becomes more demanding again and there are steel cables for help, for safer walking. Next follows the hardest part of the path Čez Prag. With the help of stemples and a steel cable we ascend on 15 meters high almost vertical chimney. Difficulties then slowly vanish and from the left Tominšek route joins. Only few steps ahead by the path, we notice a pleasant well where we can take a rest. The path ahead soon brings us to the next crossing, where we continue left in the direction of Staničev dom (right Kredarica). The path ahead leads on karst terrain, full of cracks and abysses (carefully). Higher, the path crosses shorter scree and then it ascends on a plateau terrain, where in front of us we already notice a mountain hut Dom Valentina Staniča, to which we only have some 10 steps of easy walking.
Further, we continue in the direction of Kredarica on the path which gently ascends below the scree of Rž, and then it ascends diagonally over a mentioned scree. In the upper part part of the scree we will notice a poorly beaten footpath (because of avalanches often barely noticeable), which leaves marked path towards Kredarica. The footpath which from the marked path branches off to the left, after a shorter steep ascent over the scree and higher a smaller gully brings us on the ridge of Rž. Here we continue left and we follow "path" on and in parts by the ridge to the top.
In the upper part at looking for passages we get help from cairns, and in the lower part are because of avalanches often ruined.
