IntroHere, I'd like to describe shortly an interesting route on Crna Prst, which is nice to do a round tour, descending then by the shortest route via Za Liscem pasture or Za Crno goro pasture.
The optimal trailhead is Ravne above Bohinjska Bistrica, where we can leave our car on 760m of altitude. The other option is Polje village (or Zlan, a bit SE of it), where we park on some 540m.
The mountain road, which crosses the whole northern slope of Crna Prst (and further towards the West) goes from the ski resort towards the West, but we soon catch the marked path and deter from the road to the left, up the slope. Through a forrest we go allways up, the direction is SW, until we reach the upper road, coming from the left. We are some 1040m high. By the upper road we continue towards the West, reaching a broad valley, where the normal ascent via Za Liscem pasture deters towards the South. But we continue around the valley by the road, and around Lisec summit into the next valley, coming down from Osredki pasture. Here, on the altitude of some 1100m the marked path from Polje comes from the right and continues towards the South. We leave the road and by the marked path reach Osredki alpine meadow, 1400m. Here we can choose either do continue by the marked path till the main ridge, or, more beautiful, turn left and ascend also the summit of Lisec.
If we choose Lisec summit, we must find a steep, not marked path, which goes from Osredki meadow towards the East, over the slopes of Lisec. It is a bit hard to follow, steep, but besides some obvious care we find no real difficulties. Through the best passages we reach the side ridge of Lisec, 1653m, the panoramic summit is just a few minutes towards the north. From Lisec summit we continue towards the South, following the ridge of Lisec. Again no difficulties, but also the path is more and more lost. When we approach the main ridge of Crna Prst, we already see the marked path, coming from the right, go on the path and ascend the main ridge in the area of Vrata, 1721m. Then towards the East by the main ridge path for another good 100m to the hut and the summit of Crna Prst.
You descend by the shortest routes, either via Za Liscem pasture or Za Crno goro pasture.
