Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road towards Bled and forward towards Bohinjska Bistrica. We continue driving towards the lake Bohinj (Ribčev laz), where we come to a crossroad, where we continue straight on the left (south) side of the lake in the direction of Ukanc and waterfall Savica. We follow this road to the bottom station of the cable car on Vogel, then we buy a ticket and go with a cableway to the upper station, which is the starting point for our tour.
Path description:
When we step from the upper station of the cableway, we go right towards the mountain hut Merjasec. We reach it after 100 meters of walking.
At the mountain hut, we go on the path in the direction of Vogel, Šija and Rodica. The path ahead starts slightly descending on a ski track, and then it brings us on a small indistinct saddle, where the path towards Zlatorog branches off to the right.
We continue left on a bad road, where there aren't any marks, and we run into a blazes a little further. Cart track road starts ascending and is turning slightly right. A little further, the cart track has a crossroad, but left steep and right gentle quickly join. Then on the right side we notice a cross, where a worse road flattens and it brings us to the crossing on a smaller plateau.
And here we go left at first downwards, and then on the other side of a sinkhole upwards to the top of a ski lift. When wide path brings us to the top of this ski lift we leave the path.
We go on a ridge towards the north. Already after few meters, we get to dwarf pines. The passage we find right in a gentle descent. We soon notice small indistinct saddle on a ridge which we left. The path to the saddle is hardly passable, but it is possible without much climbing through dwarf pines. On the other side of the saddle we descend few meters and then we continue right below rocks. We are ascending on grass and the path again gets interrupted by dwarf pine. Best passage we find a little to the right. We are again on an indistinct ridge. Here we see the peak and we choose the passage on the right side of a smaller sinkhole few meters below the summit. The last meters are not difficult.
The path from the top of the ski lift to the top is entirely pathless. In fog the orientation is very demanding.
