From Ljubelj pass, the border between Slovenia and Austria you will ascend below the north face and slopes of Begunjscica on the Dom na Zelenici (hut) (1536m). You can reach the hut over the skiing slopes or over the macadam road in the forest.

Warning: The difficulty for this route on Begunjscica is estimate for the Winter season. In the time when the north slopes and face of Begunjscica is snowless this are not fine and popular ascents.

Route Description

From the Dom na Zelenici (hut) you start ascending in the south direction in the way to the big screes below the north face of Begunjscica. You must follow the longest scree that is below the main summit of Begunjscica.You walk in the steep slope and soon you come to the part where the scree is very narrow. On the right (towards before you) is the Osredna grapa (Main ravine) that leads you directly on the top of Begunjscica.

You follow the scree to the start of the ravine and you start climbing in it. On the begining you must climb over the steepest part and then you come in the upper part of thr ravine below the main summit of Begunjscica. Now you have many possibilities for reaching the ridge. You choose the best one and you will come on the east ridge of Begunjscica or maybe even on the top of Begunjscica.

The best possibiltiy for descend back to Ljubelj pass is that you descend over the small valley Sentanski plaz. (The description will come soon)
