Access to starting point:

1. We drive from Kamnik to Stahovica where we come to a crossroads of two roads. Left one goes into Kamniška Bistrica valley, ours goes straight forward in direction of Črnivec. We follow this pretty winding road almost till pass Črnivec. A steep road towards Kranjski rak branches to sharp left couple of hundred metres before the pass. Road then brings us to a restaurant on Kranjski rak. There is a crossroads couple of metres ahead. We continue straight forward toward Luče. Road brings us into valley Podvolovjek after a longer sweep. Here we can notice a bar Pri Gamsu on the left side of the road. We keep driving aproximately 100m till a point where on the right side are signposts for Korošica, Povežak, Ravne… (marks of the road is aproximately 11km). We orient to left on this road and we keep following it throught crossroads after marks planina Podvežak. Crossroads are marked with signposts. We park on a parking lot by a small wooden garage where a worse road closed for traffic (gate, if it is open still do not continue with driving because some people got suck on the other side). branches to right.
2. From Štajerska side we drive to Mozirje and we kepp following the road towards Logarska dolina. In village Luče we turn left towards Kamnik and keep following the road till mark road 10,5 km. We must be watchful here because a road towards Podvežak mountain pasture soon branches to right. There are signposts for Korošica on the left side of the road. We orient on this road and follow it through crossroads after marks planina Podvežak. We park on a parking lot by a wooden garage where a worse road for traffic branches to right.

Path description:

We start at the parking lot and orient on a worse road which leads us first through a forest and then by the edge of a mountain pasture brings us to a hut on mountain pasture. An indicator on the mountain pasture directs us to right upwards on the mountain pasture. Path quickly leads us through a forest which we leave soon. We keep on walking on a small valley which is surrounded by a rare forest. Path turns slightly left at the end of the valley and then crosses slopes in some short gradients and descents. After the last descent the path brings in a nice straight where we leave a marked path towards Korošica. An unexpressed valley opens at slight left at the end of the straight. We orient in this valley and we follow it upwards. If there is snow we have to search for proper passes between a dwarf pine. These are not hard to find because of rare dwarf pine. We follow this valley exposed to avalanches to the point where a nice pass opens on the right (pass straight upwards is quite steep and dangerous for a slide and an avalanche). This pass is quite steeper but not too much. An unexpressed easy valley opens on the left at the top of this pass. We keep on walking on this valley which soon goes round of sinkhole and then after a slight rise brings us to a saddle between Tolsti vrh on the right and Deska on left. We orient to right here on a steeper side ridge of the top which is partly overgrown with a dwarf pine. Just a little under the top steep reduces and we reach the top in some steps.
