Access to starting point:
Beacause of the rockfall access to described starting point currently isn't possible (May 2018).
We leave Gorenjska highway at exit Hrušica and follow the road ahead in the direction of Kranjska Gora. Only a little after the village Belca forest road on Kepa branches off to the right. We go on this road which through the tunnel and above precipices brings us to a parking lot in front of the gate, where we park (further driving is forbidden).
Path description:
The path on Kepa at first leads by the stream (beginning of the path is marked), and after few minutes turns left and starts ascending steeper. Ahead we are ascending through the forest, which is occasionally interrupted by some shorter with bushes covered clearing. Marked mountain path then twice crosses a forest road, when we step there the third time we follow it to the right to a little larger parking lot by the border ridge (to here possible also on the road).
From the parking lot, we in few steps ascend on the border ridge and we follow the path ahead towards the east. A relatively gently sloping path which runs on the border ridge quickly brings us to a smaller bivouac (2 mattresses), which is situated on the Slovenian side of the ridge.
From the bivouac, we still continue on a marked footpath which soon joins the path from Austria. The path then ascends a little steeper and further leads on a narrower ridge. The increasingly panoramic path then crosses some slightly exposed gullies and then turns right (entirely on the Slovenian side). The path ahead ascends diagonally over steep and well-secured slope, which is very exposed to falling stones. Higher, the path turns left and is then ascending on a steep upper slope of Kepa. Steep and full of gravel path higher again brings us on the border ridge, where there is the next crossing.
We continue right (left Kepa 2 minutes) on the path, that is gently descending on panoramic grassy slopes. The path which runs by the edge of the ridge then starts descending steeper and soon brings us on a smaller saddle, where joins the path from Austria. We continue straight on the path which still runs on the Austrian side of the ridge. The path which then crosses very steep slopes soon brings us on the saddle between Kepa and Dovška Mala Kepa.
Here the path returns on the Slovenian side and further crosses very steep and crumbly slopes. The path then starts ascending and with the help of fixed safety gear brings us on the eastern side of Dovška Mala Kepa. The marked path then again brings us on the main ridge and continues towards the east (left on an unmarked path Dovška Mala Kepa 10 minutes).
Considerably panoramic path then brings us to exposed gully which with the help of fixed safety gear we walk through. The path is then turning a little more to the right and eventually brings us on an indistinct and wide grassy south ridge of Gubno. Here we leave the marked path and on a poorly beaten footpath in few minutes we ascend to the summit.
The starting point - bivouac 1:45, bivouac - Kepa 2:00, Kepa - Dovška Mala Kepa 45 minutes, Dovška Mala Kepa - Gubno 30 minutes.
