Access to starting point:
Because of the rockfall access to described starting point currently isn't possible (May 2018).
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Jesenice - west, and then we continue driving on a regional road towards Kranjska Gora. The mentioned road, we follow to the settlement Belca and for few 100 meters ahead, and then we will notice on the right side beginning of the forest road which runs into a valley of Belca. Ahead we drive on at first still wide, after that narrower and occasionally quite precipitous forest road. Scenic road which leads us through the tunnel we follow to a marked parking lot by smaller bridge by the confluence of Suhi graben and stream Beli potok.
If we continue driving over a bridge after which is green gate, it can happen, that it will be locked on the way back.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the road, and it immediately crosses a bridge, behind which is situated green gate. The road soon starts ascending steeper by scenic stream Suhi graben. Higher, we ascend above nice waterfall, and the road a little further brings us to a crossroad, where we continue on the left road (right Kepa).
The road continues moderately ascending, and at all crossroads we follow the "main" road. A little higher road leads past the forestry cottage and a little higher past a trough with water. The road which has some smaller crossroads we still follow on "main" road, and after the last sharp right turn it brings us to a smaller crossing by which there is usually situated a smaller cairn. Here the path on Mojstrovica over Bašinov breg branches off to the left, and we continue straight and we follow the road to its end.
From the end of the road over fence we ascend on the mentioned small saddle, where there is a crossing of unmarked paths. We continue slightly right on the west side of the ridge (left Mojstrovica and Visoki vrh) on the path which quickly brings us on a smaller clearing, where we run into the first orientational problem. We continue straight on at first poorly visible path (not left), which ascends steeper and higher brings us on a smaller saddle. The path ahead turns right and starts descending on a slope vegetated with larch forest. The path then in a semicircle bypasses Tišlerica (1757 meters) and on the other side descends on a little larger meadow. In the upper part of the mentioned meadow is smaller crossing, where we continue towards the north on a little steeper path. The path ahead ascends in few hairpin turns, and then it brings us on a small indistinct saddle between Kresišče and Laskovec.
We continue on the path which towards the west and in a gentle descent crosses slopes of Kresišče. A pleasant footpath (there's more of them) after a short descent brings us on the mountain pasture Grajšca, where from the left joins the path from Srednji vrh.
From Grajšca from which there is a nice view towards Martuljek group of mountains we continue on a gently sloping meadow, which is crisscrossed with numerous holes, which are made by marmots. The path which runs on narrower meadow higher brings us in thin forest, which ends with smaller, but very distinct torrent. The path ahead runs on and by the torrent and higher brings us on the border ridge, where there is the next crossing.
We continue right on a ridge path (straight Trupejevo poldne), that starts descending. After a short descent the path again starts ascending this time between dwarf pines and a gully. The steepness soon decreases and the path brings us to the summit "Maloško poldne", where there is a crossing.
We continue left downwards (right Kresišče on the ridge) on a relatively steep and entirely Austrian side of the ridge. After few minutes of descent, the path ascends again and it again brings us on the ridge. The path ahead becomes a little harder, but we have safety catches for help with the help of which we safely ascend on the nearby peak (demanding part is very short).
The starting point - end of the road 1:45, end of the road - Ostra peč / Mallestiger Mittagskogel 1:40.
On the way: Maloško poldne / Mallestiger Mittagskogel (1828m)
