Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Ljubelj and follow the road ahead to the border crossing. Only few meters before the border crossing signs for Zelenica point us to the left and after few 10 meters of additional driving the road brings us on a parking lot below the ski center Zelenica.
Path description:
At the beginning of the parking lot signpost for Stol, Vrtača and Dom na Zelenici point us on a wide cart track which starts ascending by the torrent. When a little higher the cart track turns left, we continue straight on the mountain path which continues through the forest and soon returns on a cart track. Cart track a little higher turns right and brings us out of the forest on a ski track of the former ski slope Zelenica. Next follows a short steeper ascent on a ski slope, and then the path flattens and leads us by the foot of the scree below Begunjščica.
From the marked path soon the path which runs on a transport road branches off to the right, and we continue on "road" to the nearby hut Koča Vrtača.
At the mountain hut, the road turns right, and we continue straight in the direction of the mountain path on Zelenica. A short time we continue below the former one-seater chairlift Zelenica II, and then the path starts ascending steeper on a slope, which is partly overgrown by dwarf pines. After few hairpin turns, we return on a transport road, on which we continue with a view towards the gully Šentanski plaz.
The path ahead leads us on slopes of Spodnji plot (peak, on which they made a sport climbing path), after that from the road we turn right on a footpath which cuts a longer turn. When we return on the road we are already at the upper station of the former one-seater chairlift Zelenica II, and to the mountain hut Dom na Zelenici separates us only few steps of descent.
After the mountain hut, we continue left and we ascend to half of the children's ski lift, and then on the right we notice signs for Vrtača and Stol, which point us to the right into a lane of a forest. A little further, we cross a connecting lane between children's ski lift and anchor ski lift, and then we cross also the other ski track.
Continuation of the path, we find at smaller boulder, and then we cross slopes below the ridge of Na Možeh. When the crossing ends, we get to a small indistinct valley, where the path branches off to the right in Suho rušje (by the turn off there is usually a cairn).
The path into Suho rušje at first ascends through the forest (sharply right path on the scree, option for a descent), and then passes among dwarf pines, where the path is well beaten, and the dwarf pines are cutted. Next follows a short steeper ascent, where when we look back a nice view opens up on Begunjščica, and in front of us on the left we see Vrtača, straight Zelenjak, and right Palec and ridge Na možeh. Higher the footpath flattens a little and passes into a high mountain valley, which gradually narrows. Even a little further footpath turns right and then joins the path which leads on the scree below the ridge Na možeh (mentioned path is more appropriate for a descent than ascent). We continue left and on the scree we start ascending diagonally, and such a path we follow all the way to Žleb, which is situated between Zelenjak and Palec.
From Žleb, from where a nice view opens up into Austria we continue right (left Zelenjak), where we still walk on a followable path. The path ahead ascends diagonally towards the right, where we quickly get to a wider, partly crumbly, but not too steep gully, which we cross. On the other side of the gully, we start steeply ascending, and the path a little ahead brings us on the ridge of Palec, from where a nice view opens up on the ridge Na Možeh, and a view reaches far towards the east. Next follows a short steep rocky jump, where we have to help ourselves with hands. Above the jump, the path flattens a little, but it is still steeply ascending towards the summit of Palec, which in few minutes of additional ascent, with nice views, we also reach.
Ljubelj - Zelenica 1:20, Zelenica - Palec 1:40.
On the way: Koča na Vrtači (1288m), Dom na Zelenici mountain hut (1536m), Žleb (Suho ruševje) (1916m)
