    Easy access via car to a car park, 500m walk to start of route at the chapel in a clearing near the mountain hut.
    The start was hardest part in the dark. Find the wide track and continue up this easily to a small bivouac hut. From here path is easy and spectacular until the summit rocks. Follow the aids, wires and staples until the summit ridge is reached. Turn left and follow the path plus easy scrambles to the huge summit cross. Descend the same way - 5hours up and 2.5 hrs down - I was 54yrs old and this was a superb mountain, better than Triglav - I met 2 people on the way down. Start early to keep cool and enjoy fantastic dawn views of Triglav.
