The starting point is the pass Sella di Sompdogna (Sedlo Rudni vrh) (1389m) which is approachable from over the road from the valley Dogna (Dunja). We can also reach the pass from the end of the road in the valley Saisera (Zajzera).

Route Description

From the pass Sella di Sompdogna we descend a bit too the valley Dogna and then we turn to the route number 648 in the forest. We walk in the steep forest and cross the steep ravine. On the altitude 1749m we turn right on the route number 649 and then we reach the summit over the steep grassy slope and later over the west ridge.

We descend by the sam route or we take the harder route over the east ridge.

Essential Gear

Good hiking shoes, be careful on steep grassy slopes!
