Path description:

On the right side of the road (in direction of the driving) an unmarked path to bivouac on Jezera appears by the stream backwards from the parking place. At first, the path is hard to follow, but as we reach a stream and follow the right side of the bank, this task becomes easy again. The path rises through a valley until it is blocked by a small rock wall, where we usually also find a spring. We take a right and follow the path over natural passages (the path is not protected and is a bit exposed). If there is enough water we reach a small waterfall and the path continues here on a scree, where walking becomes a bit uncomfortable, because the storms tend to ruin the path every year. On the left side we can see the Slovenian Matterhorn (when we see it, we understand the name), the road than goes to the left side of the scree, but in about 10 minutes, we can see it again. We encounter a real rubbish dump (cans, helicopter parts...) and only a few minutes later we see the bivouac on the left, where we can spend the night or just use it as a shelter in case of a storm (if we are not paying attention it can be quickly behind us). The path levels here and the view of Triglav is beautiful. The road starts to disappear from here on, but you can still follow it. We are now walking through a meadow called Na Jezerih (a lake is supposed to be here a long time ago). The path turns slightly to the right and straight ahead we can see Dovški Križ. Our path continues slightly to the left from it in to a rock wall. We find a road that leads straight in to the steep slopes. The path is not hard to find, but is demanding. It is covered with grass and not protected. If the grass is wet the danger increases. From the wall we reach the mountain crest and take a left to descend to the saddle Grlo. Here, we reach a scree under Oltar and start to ascend again. Straight forward we see a distinctive mountain gorge and make our way towards it. From here on, the path disappears and we have to walk through the bottom of the gorge and where it narrows take a left (stone signposts are put there to help-cairns). We are now in a not so abrupt rock wall of Oltar. We have to find the passages to the top and as we walk towards the peak, a wall stops our ascent just a few meters from the top. This climbing is very demanding and is marked as a 2. degree climbing, somewhere even as 1. degree, but the view from the top is very beautiful.
