OverviewVrh 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.
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.
RouteThe 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.
