ApproachFrom Mojstrana in Sava valley, you drive (or walk) into the beautiful Vrata valley. Half way into the valley there's Koca pri Pericniku (mountain hut) and on the right side of the road Pericnik waterfall itself (10 minutes walk).
You proceed by the road and in the middle of the first steeper rise you will see a big scree (gravel), coming down from the right (from below Kukova spica on the left and Skrantarica on the right) ), like a river. This is called Cerlovec, in the upper part being a long ravine. There's a trailhead and also a parking place.
Route DescriptionYou start by a big scree and on the right you see a path. If the water destroy the path here you will find it on the right a little bit higher. The path goes through a very nice forest in a big serpentine winding. This is not makred route but is often used so you haven`t got problems.
Soon you come on the top of forest where our route turns left (on the right goes route to the Vrtasko Sleme) where you cross the ravine Veliki Cerlovec. Then route traverses the S slopes of Kukova spica and comes to the start of small valley Gulce. When you see a scree coming down you turn right and scramble this scree to the top. Then you have an easy small wall to climb ( UIAA I).
After that you have another scree and soon you see a ravine on the left which comes from Skrantarica`s E face. Just befor the last steep slope below the Gulce pass you turn left to the ravine.
