Approach

You reach Vrsic pass by car or bus.

Route Description

From Vrsic, 1611 you ascend by the normal path towards Mojstrovka. First you cross long screes, then ascend up to the notch and continue some 100 meters right by the S ridge.

From the S ridge descend to a shallow basin and continue towards SW. You are proceeding by a broad terrace, there is no trail, occasionally, if lucky, you might spot an old, yellow mark. The altitude is some 2100-2150m. Then you approach a side ridge, coming down from the main one and to overcome it, you must ascend through a steep ravine. On the other side you cross another basin and so reach the S ridge of Travnik. Turn right and find the best passages over the grassy and rocky slopes. By the S ridge you reach the summit.

Travnik south slopes can be also accessed from SW, from the small hut, named Zavetisce pod Spickom, 2064m. You descend by the same route.

For a descent I don't know how would it be to find a descent down (towards south) to the marked path, which crosses the whole Dnina slopes and finally comes horizontally on Vrsic pass. Many years ago I found one hunters trail, but not south of Travnik, but more towards east, somewhere south of Zadnja Mojstrovka. Would appreciate any information!

0. General. From 1611m to 2379m, exposition SE. First screes, then rocky and grassy landscape. From Mojstrovka S ridge on there's no good path. perhaps some very rare marks. Normal hiking equipment (good shoes and sticks), no water on the route.
1. Effort. 900m, 3h,
2. Power. 2 - easy (mainly walking, even if steep),
3. Psyche. 2 - easy,
4. Orientation. 4 - hard (take a good map).
