We drive to Žirovnica and follow this road towards lake Završnice. Road is leading us most of the time by a brook and brings us to a crossroads. We direct to left and keep on driving till a parking lot on the end of the road at Tinčkova koča (cottage).
From the parking lot we turn on cart track towards Zelenica. Cart track become steep and soon we come to crossing where we take left (right: Roblekov dom). We continue on cart track through forest and in one hour we come to the Smokuška planina Alpine meadow. From here we reach the mountain hut (Koča pri izviru Završnice) in few minutes. From here we continue on the path towards Stol and Vrtača. It ascends slightly through a valley between Srednji vrh and Vrtača. After half an hour we come to the Šija saddle. On the crossroads here we turn right towards Vrtača. Soon we come to marked path (upper way to Stol) where we turn right. The path soon branches to the left to Vrtača. We go on that path, which crosses southern slopes of Vrtača but gets steeper. The path turns right and goes up steeply. The grass can be very slippery if it's steep. The path gets on the ridge, which is not that exposed. It crosses a steep grass from time to time. The top has a beautiful view, especially towards Stol and Begunjščica.
