You start the tour on Vrsic pass where you park your car. Then you hike by Ticarjev dom (hut) and lead the marked routes for the Kopiscarjeva pot (Through the Front (West) Window), for the west ridge (by the Front window) and over the south slopes.

Route Description

On the small hill Sovna glava, (1750m) the route for Through the Front (West) Window goes in the north face but you follow the signposts for the route over south slopes. You cross the long screes below the west face of Prisojnik and soon you come on the small pass in the middle of Prisojnik`s west ridge called Gladki rob, (1870m).

From Gladki rob secedes the route over the West ridge (one route goes also down to Trenta valley). But you follow the route which cross the south slopes and comes on the next crossing. Here you take the route, which turns left on the south slopes. You scramble over some rocks and the screes and climb on some secured routes. Soon you come back on the west ridge just some meters below the summit and then you reach the very powerful mountain of Prisojnik.

This route is needed for not good climbers and for descend when you climb on some hard ferattas in north face.

Essential Gear

Good hiking shoes, helmet and rope for not good climbers.
