Route Description

View on the north face of the ridge Jez.

In snowless season you can drive some meters over the road but in Winter time you have to park by the main road. You walk in the nice forest and the marked route becomes steeper and steeper. The forest ends on the altitude around 1300 meters and over the steep screes you reach the long plateau where is the meadow Planina Dolga njiva (1688m). This is very nice place with the north face of the airy ridge Jez and the summit of Zvoh on the south and the long south slopes of Kalski Greben (2224m) on the north. On the east side you can see the summit of Vrh Korena (1999m). You have to reach this summit and then descend some meters and then you reach the summit of Kompotela over the last final grassy slope.

Before you reach Dolga njiva alpine meadow you need to ascend over a steep rocky step, where the passage (narrow ledge) is secured with a steel rope. This is important, because in times of tour skiing this passage can be tricky. I remember it as one of rare passages, where I was skiing by a 1m wide rocky ledge, holding for a cable. by: Vid Pogachnik

From the meadow Planina Dolga njiva you continue to the east and soon you come at the end of the meadow Planina Dolga njiva from where you turn to the south and check the north face of Jez that is full of interesting ravines.

You choose the right one for you and if it is too hard you can pick another one. Very interesting ravine is on the right of the main tower of Jez.

Essential Gear

Good hiking shoes, ice axe, crampons in Winter total equipment for tour skiing.
