|The north / east route is shorter than the other one, but probably steeper. Start at approx 1653 m on a col ( N 43.30474 / E 018.74544) accessible from a mostly unpaved road starting from Tjentiste (I suggest to spend the night at the hotel being slightly further from the point where the road start in direction of maglic (crossing located in front of an old gas station). The climb is very nice, though it can be slipery with wet weather. There are several long iron cables to protect exposed sections.|
the ridge is reached at 2344 (N 43.27879 / E 018.73680) important point if you get lost in the fog.
From there the summit is not far (10 to 15 mn) with a short steep section requiring hands use.
summit N 43.28109 / E 018.73310 at 2386 on Bosnia summit.
It is said the montenegrin nearby summit is slightly higher (2 m more) but anyway it's not the highest top of all this massif.
This route is enjoyable but needs experienced hikers at ease with some quite easy scrambing. This doesn't mean you should automtically follow locals advice to use the services of a local guide to climb this route!
