Access to starting point:
We drive from Kranjska Gora over mountain pass Vršič towards Bovec or vice versa, but only to 50th hairpin turn of Vršič road or Ruska cesta (near the village Trenta). Here we turn on a side road, by which we after few 100 meters park on a parking lot by the road.
Path description:
The described path is from 30/7/2016 again CLOSED, because rockfall is again active.
From the parking lot, we continue on the road, and which past few houses (mainly holiday cottages) in approximately 15 minutes brings us to the spot, where the road splits into two parts (by the crossroad used to be a parking lot, today it is forbidden to park).
From the old parking lot we go to the left road in the direction of the mountain hut Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih (right road leads towards Prehodavci and Dolič). After 15 minutes of additional walking, the road brings us to the bottom station of the cargo cableway, where it ends.
We continue the ascent on a marked footpath (mule track), which is moderately ascending through the forest. The path which is ascending above the valley of Beli potok, quickly brings us on very steep slopes (danger of falling stones), over which leads a very wide footpath. The path ahead crosses a gully Veliki Presek, behind which we come on a short exposed ledge, over which we come with the help of steel cables. Further, the path returns into the forest, where it is in numerous turns moderately ascending. A little further, the path brings us below a smaller overhang, where we will be able to notice numerous sticks, which mountaineers put, so that the rock doesn't roll into the valley (sticks are there for fun, they don't prevent anything). The path ahead crosses some smaller gullies, then past a chapel brings us to a bigger gully. With some caution (undemanding) we cross the mentioned gully behind which in few minutes of additional walking, we ascend to a pleasant resting place (two benches by the path). Further, we cross another bigger gully (in the early summer possible snow fields), and then the path returns into the forest. Higher the forest is becoming thinner, and the path a little steeper and more and more scenic.
The path which is still ascending on an old mule track, then past two more benches brings us into a lane of dwarf pines, after which we pass over on more rocky terrain. Further, we are ascending on smaller scree, on an increasingly panoramic path, which higher brings us to a pleasant well (source).
Only few 10 strides above the mentioned source, we will come on an unmarked crossing, where the unmarked path branches off to the right towards the lake Spodnje Kriško jezero (2 minutes), and we continue slightly left on a still wide mountain path. The path ahead leads us past smaller ruins, and we follow it all the way to a marked crossing, where we continue right in the direction of Pihavec, Bovški Gamsovec, Stenar and valley Vrata (left Pogačnikov dom 3 minutes). We continue the ascent on an increasingly panoramic path, from which soon a path branches off to the right on Pihavec (straight Stenar, Križ and Vrata). After a short ascent from the left joins also unmarked path from Dovška Vrata. Here the path turns to the right and at first crosses scree, and then the path turns slightly to the left and starts ascending towards the notch Čez Kamen. The path on the scree then brings us to a rocky jump, which is also the only demanding spot on the path. Here the path ascends vertically on stemples. It is also mandatory to use a helmet because above the stemples there are a lot of stones on the path. When we climb rocky jump with the help of stemples, follows also relatively short ascent by the steel cable. Here we need to be very careful, not to trigger stones. A short ascent follows to the notch Čez Kamen (2331 meters). On the notch path turns to the right and then runs on the south side of Pihavec towards the west. At the end path turns again slightly to the right and then follows a short undemanding ascent to the top.
