Access to starting point:
We drive into the center of Bovec, where from a crossroad at the main square we continue on an ascending road which past the post office starts ascending towards the nearby church. We bypass the mentioned church on the left side, and then we get to Kaninska vas. Bovec then ends and the road for some time leads towards the west. At a smaller crossing we leave the main asphalt road which leads towards the village Plužna and we continue driving on a slightly right road (behind the crossroad there are signs for road Gozdec). Behind the nearby homestead, the road once again splits, this time we choose a slightly left road (slightly right Zavrzelno and the starting point of the path on Rombon). Further, we are ascending on a macadam road which higher brings us to B cableway station on Kanin. At B station, the road turns sharply left and then in a diagonal ascent after approximately 1 km of additional driving brings us to the next crossroad. At the mentioned crossroad, we continue sharply right towards the mountain pasture Krnica (left Gozdec). The road then brings us to a crossroad where left upwards a road branches off towards C and D station. We park near the mentioned crossroad.
Path description:
We go on the road which leads towards C and D stations of the cable car. The road in the initial part leads through the forest and is then for quite some time ascending in long zig-zags. Further, we are all the time ascending on a relatively wide road, that runs a little left (western) from the cableway. At the ascent in zig-zags we occasionally cross also old much narrower and steeper road, and higher also nice views start opening up towards the valley of river Soča. When we come out of the forest, the path is becoming more panoramic and we soon get to a bench, which is situated by the road. Further, the road gets a little closer to the cableway and soon brings us to C station.
From C station we still continue on the road which is from here on also part of ski track named Skripi. Further, the road is ascending on the right (eastern) side of the cableway. When we get to chairlift Skripi road becomes a little worse and starts ascending even a little steeper. On increasingly steep road further there is also quite a lot of gravel. Such a path then brings us to D station of the cable car.
At D station we continue slightly left towards the northwest. We at first walk on a relatively gentle terrain, which is also part of the ski slope. The path here leads past some information boards and then blazes point us to footpath towards Visoki Kanin and window Okno v Prestreljeniku. The path for a short time runs on rocky terrain and then in a gentle ascent crosses scree and it brings us to a crossing.
Straight leads the path towards Visoki Kanin, and we go right upwards towards the window Okno v Prestreljeniku. From the crossing, the path starts ascending steeper on the scree and in the last part becomes also a little more demanding. The slope becomes steeper and then follows a short steep ascent with the help of steel cables. Here from the right also joins demanding path (ferrata), and to the window then follows only few steps of walking.
We descend on the ascent route or on ferrata, which joins few meters before the window. In case if we descend on ferrata we will need also a self-belay set.
