OverviewGeographical structure: Eastern Alps > Julian Alps > Triglav group.
Zadnjiski Ozebnik is a not very important mountain on the margin of Triglav group and it is located above the second valley of the big Trenta valley called Zadnjica. The north face falls around 1000 meters high down steeply in to the Zadnjica valley. Zadnjiski Ozebnik is located in the nearness of the giant Kanjavec, 2569m. It is in the NW ridge that comes from Kanjavec over the Vrsac, 2194m and then that ridge falls down on the pass Cez dol, 1632m and then rises up to the last mountain Zadnjiski Ozebnik before the long Trenta valley.
Zadnjiski Ozebnik is very variegated mountain. On the south side it is not very steep and very nice for tour skiing but on the north side has very steep and airy north face where are some nice climbing routes. The main summit is high 2084 meters but it has some lateral summits such as Veliki Konj, 2034m (on the SW ridge), Velika glava, 1882m (on the SW ridge) and Veliki Vrsovec, 1856m (on the NW ridge). But for the hikers and climbers is popular only the main summit because other summits are far away and if you want to reach it you must be very patient when you will punch through the dwarf pine and forests.

The normal approach on the Zadnjiski Ozebnik goes from the beautiful valley Zadnjica and then through the smaller valley Zadnjiski dol on the pass Cez dol. Here you leave the marked route and you continue your way in the south direction on the south slopes of Zadnjiski Ozebnik. Here is no marked route but you will see some hunting routes or the traces of forerunners. It is not very hard to reach the summit over nice grassy slopes. You can reach the pass Cez dol also from the west side over the marked route through the valley Trebiski dol and then just continue like on the first possibility.

For climbing on Zadnjiski Ozebnik is the best starting point Zadnjica valley.
Zadnjica is quite short (3.5km) subsidiary to famous Trenta valley. It begins at Trenta village and opens towards east. It gradually rises till its end at Planja (1000m). Bottom is mostly forested and there are few meadows. Around the valley is some of the most dramatic scenery in Julian Alps. The cliffs of Pihavec (2414m), Triglav (2864m), Kanjavec (2568m), Vrsac (2194m) and Zadnjiski Ozebnik (2084m), which fall into dark depths of Zadnjica have no match in Julian Alps. They create amazing wall around the valley, which culminates with highest face of Julian Alps, that of Kanjavec, which is 1500m high! In the valley is dark and subdued atmosphere because walls around are letting very little sunshine in. End of valley is reached by road, which is closed to traffic 2km above the Trenta village.
