Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road ahead in the direction of Žirovnica and Jesenice. After few km of driving, we will get to a crossroad, where the road in Žirovnica and Moste branches off to the right (from the direction of Jesenice left). Only few meters ahead in the next crossroad, we turn left in Moste (right Žirovnica). Further, we drive past a monument to fallen soldiers, where the road starts ascending on a hill below the railway track. On top of the slope, we turn right (at the sign Vila Karin), and then drive towards the lake Završniško jezero and Valvasorjev dom. The road then flattens and it brings us to a crossroad, where the road towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom branches off to the left, and we continue straight on at first still asphalt road. The road soon becomes a macadam, and we follow it approximately 5 km to the parking lot near the mountain hut Tinčkova koča. The road in the upper part is often in quite bad condition, so we can park earlier, for instance at the end of the mountain pasture Pri Žagi, where the road again turns in the forest, which extends the path for 15 minutes.
Path description:
From the mountain hut Tinčkova koča we follow the marked path towards the mountain hut Dom pri izviru Završnice, and from there we continue on a marked path towards Zelenica. When 5 minutes from the mountain hut Dom pri izviru Završnice the valley widens and flattens, we turn left and through the forest and dwarf pines we come on a marked path Zelenica - Stol. We follow it in the direction of Stol to the right turn-off of the footpath upwards through dwarf pines into a cirque Suho rušje. We continue on a footpath past the boulders and on the top of dwarf pined hill, where the valley narrows, we look for the easiest passage through dwarf pines and scree (there are visible traces of a footpath) towards the ridge of Vrtača, which surrounds the valley on the left. We stick to direction of a small saddle in the ridge. When we reach it, we follow the ridge upwards towards the slope with small reddish gully in the middle. Right by the mentioned small gully we ascend on a grassy upper rib of Mala glava, from where we continue upwards and diagonally on the grass or for some time still on a rocky ridge (harder). In between we cross a smaller gully. We stick towards the left, so that we reach the ridge, on which we ascend upwards on a secondary peak of Vrtača, and from there on a footpath to the summit.
In wet dangerous for slipping, a rock is quite crumbly!
