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

The SE face of Vrh Zelenic 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 just below the Vrh Zelenic SE face and its fore summit Špiček (2192 m).

On the Koritnica Valley side, the NW face makes a dramatic drop (ca. 250 to 300 m tall) to a high terrace, above which also rise Mali Ozebnik and Plešivec.

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. Vrh Zelenic is to the left of 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). 


The standard ascent is unmarked and not recommended, the summital part being a scramble along improbable terrain.
From the "Zavetišče pod Špičkom" mountain hut, reach the saddle between Špiček and Vrh Zelenic - unmarked but easy (two options, N and S). Next head west towards the summit along loose and exposed terrain.
