Access to starting point:
From Kranjska Gora over mountain pass Vršič we drive towards Bovec or vice versa, but only to 49th hairpin turn of Vršič road (near the village Trenta). Here we go on a side road in the direction of source of river Soča. The road after a shorter ascent quickly brings us to the parking lot before the mountain hut Koča pri izviru Soče, but we continue left over a bridge and follow the road ahead to the parking lot at the end of the road (by parking lot we notice signposts for Bavški Grintavec, waterfalls of Suhi potok and Jalovec).
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on the bottom road in the direction of Bavški Grintavec. The road at first runs through the valley on the right side of the stream Suhi potok, and soon we cross a riverbed of the stream and the road passes into a footpath. After that, the path runs mostly through the forest and it brings us to a crossroad, where we go right following the signs Bavški Grintavec. Left runs the path towards waterfalls Zapotoški slapovi. Again we cross the stream and we start ascending on steep slopes above the valley Zadnja Trenta. After that, the path several times crosses a steep torrents and there are also some safety catches for help. The path soon avoids steep slopes above the valley and through the forest brings us to the mountain pasture Planina Zapotok. On the mountain pasture path turns a little to the left and starts ascending through a thin forest. Soon also last larches vanish and wonderful views open up on Jalovec, Bavški Grintavec and peaks above the valley Zadnja Trenta. The path is then ascending on grassy slopes and it brings us to the scree below Bavški Grintavec. Here we come to a crossing, where we go right towards the saddle Kanja. The path over saddle Kanja on Bavški Grintavec is one of the most difficult paths in Slovenia, therefore it is very recommended to descend on left a little easier path. We continue over the scree below the walls of Bavški Grintavec, and then the path turns slightly to the right and starts ascending towards the saddle Kanja on which we come again to a crossing. We go left, and the right path runs towards Bavšica. We soon come to the entry of a climbing part of the path. First path by steel cables brings us to vertical wall on which we climb with the help of stemples. When climb to rocky overhang path turns to the left and through slightly overhang traverses brings us to the ridge. The path on the ridge is still very exposed and soon brings us to a crossroad, where from the left joins mentioned easier path. The path again steeply ascends and is becoming more and more crumbly. The path then leads us over a narrow passages and soon turns right steeply upwards, where we are ascending with the help of few stemples and iron spikes. To here the path is also well-secured with a steel cable, which is intended mainly for protection and will be in case if you don't use a self-belay set in many places more in the way than help. From here follows some easy climbing without safety catches on very crumbly slope towards the summit, which rewards us with wonderful views on all sides.
On the way: Planina Zapotok (1385m), Kanski preval (2030m)
