Access to starting point:
From Kranjska Gora, we drive towards Bovec or vice versa, but only to mountain pass Vršič, where we park.
Path description:
Because of damaged safety catches, the described path is currently CLOSED (data from 5th August 2020).
From the parking lot, we go on a narrow road which leads past the mountain hut Tičarjev dom towards the mountain hut Poštarski dom. After a short ascent, the road turns to the left and then brings us to the signposts, where from the road footpaths branch off. At the crossing, we follow the signs »Prisojnik (skozi okno)«. The path at first starts descending a little and starts crossing slope in the direction towards the walls of Prisank. From the left side then joins the path from the mountain hut Erjavčeva koča, and a little before we enter the climbing part of the path from the right joins also the path from Sovna glava. Already at the beginning of a climbing part of the path, it becomes clear, that this path isn't for everyone. The path at first by the steel cable crosses the wall to the left and then turns right steeply upwards. For quite some time, we are then steeply ascending with the help of steel cables and numerous stemples. The slope then becomes less steep and after a short ascent through dwarf pines a wonderful view opens up towards Heathen maiden. The path goes here slightly to the right and again starts ascending a little steeper on a rocky slope. Occasionally we also get help from some iron spikes and steel cables. Next follows traversing to the left and we are soon in front of entrance into the hardest part of the path. In front of us is 15 meters high chimney. With the help of numerous stemples, we start ascending over the chimney, which is on some spots even overhung. Next follows an ascent on stemples through so narrow passage, that we have to take off a backpack and push it in front of us. We are still steeply ascending by the steel cable and then we come on a little less steep slopes, which take us to a crossing, where from the left joins the path from the mountain hut Koča na Gozdu. We continue slightly to the right upwards and then follows some easy climbing on rugged rocks, mostly without safety catches. We soon will on the right side notice window Prednje okno in Prisank. At the ascent towards the window we have to be quite careful because the path is quite crumbly and full of gravel. And in the early summer, there is here still snow. From the window then with the help of numerous stemples, we ascend steeply upwards and then join path Grebenska pot on Prisank. At the crossing, we continue to the left, but all problems are not over yet. The path turns left and on a slightly exposed slope by the steel cable ascends towards the ridge. A walk on the ridge is then a little easier, but on some spots still quite exposed. Later from the right join paths Slovenska and Jubilejna pot. Then follows only a shorter ascent and we soon reach a very panoramic peak.
The path Kopiščarjeva pot on Prisank is appropriate only for experienced mountaineers, many mountaineers consider it even as the most difficult secured climbing path on the territory of Slovenia (before extremely demanding sport ferratas were made).
The descent is recommended on the path Slovenska pot.
On the way: Sovna glava (1750m), Prednje okno (2300m)
