Access to starting point:
From Kranjska Gora over mountain pass Vršič or past Rateče in Italy and through mountain pass Predel we drive in Bovec, or a little further on the main road to the bottom station of the cable car on Kanin. From Primorska side at first we drive into a valley of river Soča and then through Tolmin and Kobarid we drive in Bovec. The price of return ticket for cable car is 13 € (July 2009). In the summer season (July, August) runs every full hour, with beginning at 7:00 in the morning. Last run from D station into a valley is at 17:00.
Path description:
Already few steps right upwards from D station is on rock on ground signpost »Rombon«. We go in this direction to the bottom station of four-seater chairlift Prevala, by which we then walk few minutes to its midway station, where at the crossing right before it we turn left (straight downwards Rombon and Prevala). The footpath all the time runs on a steep slope and is in parts slightly exposed. Quite some caution is needed because of the gravel on the path, because of which is on steep parts danger of slipping. The path ahead slowly passes on the eastern side of the mountain, ascends steeper and in parts becomes a little more demanding. On some spots, we have to help ourselves a little with hands, there aren't any fixed safety gear. Only right below the summit we run into the first, short steel cable, which is currently (July 2009) in the lower part broken, and immediately after it to the next, which would probably also needed some repairment. In this area is on one spot also visible iron spike, which supposed to be for help at the ascent, but caution – it isn't attached, but only put between the rocks! We are ascending on the more and more panoramic slope and after a little less than an hour of walking, we reach the peak.
There is a miniature replica of Aljaž turret, which was set by Slovenian mountaineering club Skala. In tower is an inscription book. The peak is quite spacious, views from there are very nice, because we see all from Julian Alps to Dolomites, High Tauern and Adriatic sea.
