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 Brežiče col is a link to Plešivec, the northernmost peak of the Loška Stena array. The Čez Brežiče 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

Koritnica valley:
Follow the path towards the Čez Brežiče col. Upon reaching the terrace at the foot of the last flank below the col (one then views the col for the first time), the wall in front, to the left of the col, is Mali Ozebnik.

Trenta valley:
Zavetišče pod Špičkom
Karfilat - hut
Zavetišče Pod Špičkom (alt. 2064 m) is a small mountain hut perched high up on the left bank of the uppermost Trenta Valley. Open during the summer season. Meals served, dormitory, no running water. The hut is most commonly used as a start or an end of a Jalovec ascent. Reach the hut along undemanding marked paths either from the Soča source Trailhead (alt. 886 m, 'Koca pri izviru Soce' mountain hut) or from the Vršič pass Trailhead (alt. 1600 m, mountain huts, longer path). Both these trailheads are along the Vršič Pass road between Bovec and Kranjska Gora (buses in the summer). 


Standard ascent: starting from the "Zavetišče pod Špičkom" mountain hut, go towards 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 Mali Ozebnik 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.
