One of starting-point is secondary valley of Trenta called Zadnja Trenta. You drive by Koca pri Izviru Soce (Hut by the spring of Soca) where you can sleep and take a look on surce of the beautiful Soca. You drive from hute a few kilomters on macadam road to the parking place on altitude 962 metres.

Route Description

From the parking place you follow the marked route for the hut Zavetisce pod Spicko. You turn to the right in steep forest slopes and in some turnings in forest you come soon on the meadow Planina trenta on the altitude around 1300m.

After you go by the meadow you come on the crossing where you can turn to the left and go to the Zavetisce pod Spicko by this possibility or you choose the right possibility and then on the next crossing you turn to the left. On this crossing comes from the right the marked route from Vrsic pass.

Our path continues straight and leaves the forest, entering large slopes bellow Jalovec and Veliki Ozebnik. From the left comes the first possibility. Refuge is visible from distance, just bellow the needle called Spicek. Path ascends steeply in many sharp bends, firstly through dwarf pine after that over bare rock land with some grass.

Zavetisce pod Spicko refuge (2064m) stands on open slopes high above Trenta valley, just bellow Spicek needle (2192m). It has 30 beds and its open from end of June till the end of September. Winter room has 4 beds. View from the refuge is beautiful, behind the Trenta valley are Prisojnik, Razor, Triglav and many more peaks.

From the hut you continute in the west direction on the marked route for the notch Skrbina za Gradom (2277m). You reach the notch over the steep scree and rock slopes.

On the notch you leave the marked route and start ascending in the south direction to the north ridge of Pelc nad Klonicami. Now we start climbing on the ridge but first we climb in some small ravines then higher we come on the ridge. Climbing is around UIAA III but mostly around UIAA II. Some parts are airy and if you have some good feeling for orientation you cannot have big problems. Just before the summit you will reach the small notch and then over the airy upper part you will come on the summit.

You descend by the same route. On some parts maybe it`s good descend with help of the rope.

Only for good climbers.

Essential Gear

Good hiking shoes, helmet, rope.
