Mali Ozebnik (2320 m) is at the end of the ridge line starting with Jalovec (2645 m) and running South: Jalovec, Veliki Ozebnik (2480 m), Vrh Zelenic (2278 m) and Mali Ozebnik. For an overview, please click the coordinates in the primary info.

Mali Ozebnik has three sides. The east face is in the Trenta Valley, the northwest face is in the Koritnica Valley and the southwest face in the Bala Valley. On the west side of Mali Ozebnik, the Čez Brežič col is a link to Plešivec, the northernmost peak of the Loška Stena array. The Čez Brežič col is also a unique link between the Bala Valley (S) and the Koritnica Vallley (N). On the southeast end of Mali Ozebnik, the Škrbina za Gradom notch offers a passage between the Trenta Valley (E) and the Bala Valley (W). The Škrbina za Gradom notch separates Mali Ozebnik from Pelc nad Klonicami, the northernmost peak of the Pelc group.

On the Koritnica Valley side, the NW face makes a dramatic drop (ca. 400 m tall) to a high terrace above which also rise part of Vrh Zelenic and Plešivec North. The NW face of Mali Ozebnik hosts a few climbs (check the External Links section below).

Above the Bala Valley, the southwest face of Mali Ozebnik is slashed by a large, slanted and grass covered band/terrace over which goes the marked and secured path coming down from the Škrbina za Gradom notch.

The E face of Mali Ozebnik is short. It drops to a high terrace, above the Soča source, in the upper Trenta Valley (Zadnja Trenta). The mountain hut called "Zavetišče pod Špičkom" (2064 m, open in the summer) is on the high terrace, very close by, just below Vrh Zelenic.

Getting There

See the Julian Alps overview page and the Mangart and Jalovec Group page!

- reach the Koritnica trailhead by entering the uppermost part of the Koritnica valley (signposted), upstream from the village of Log pod Mangartom, along a macadamized road. The village of Log pod Mangartom (650 m) is along the road between the Predel pass (a border pass between Italy and Slovenia) and the town of Bovec. By bus (or car), Bovec and the Koritnica valley can be reached from the South, from Tolmin, or over the Vršič pass from Kranjska Gora in the summer. By car, over the Predil pass from Tarvisio or Sella Nevea (Italy).

- Bala Valley, Bavšica trailhead: on the road between the Predel pass (Italy/Slovenia border) and the town of Bovec (Slovenia), reach the Kluže fortress (530m). Follow the road sign for ' Bavšica ' till the end (a few kms). The Bala trail starts at the parking lot before the last houses.

- reach the "Zavetišče pod Špičkom" mountain hut (2064 m) from the mountain hut by the Soča source (Koča pri Izviru Soče, 886 m) which is along the Vršič Pass road, on the south side, above Bovec (buses in the summer). 


Reach the Škrbina za Gradom notch (between Mali Ozebnik and Pelc nad Klonicami) along the marked and secured path linking the Trenta Valley and the Bala Valley. The path splits off the marked path just before the Škrbina za Gradom notch, on the Trenta side. Unmarked and scarce, but rather easy and short, the route traverses along the upper grassy band of the east face, due North.
