Access to starting point:

We drive towards Jezersko. When we come to a gas station in Jezersko we turn right towards Planšarsko jezero (lake). We keep driving towards cargo cable railway for Češka koča. We cross a long meadow which ends with a forest. Road makes a turn here and crosses a awift. Road turns to right again. We must be careful now. We can soon see marks for Goli vrh. We park there.

Path description:

At the cableway the path goes behind lower stop of the cableway in the direction of Češka koča, and at first it slowly goes up through a wide path, which leads us to a big opening after only a few minutes. This path over this opening is usually muddy so be careful. After 20 minutes the path gets us to the bench at the undistinctive ridge. The path continues through the forest and in the next 20 minutes gets us to the crossroad. The path from pasture connects to us. We head left and after a few minutes we get to another crossroad. Here the path from Makekova Ko?na connects to us. Right after that we get to the first safety equipment like steel wire or steps. It's not that distinctive but it can be slippery when wet so be careful. When we get through the hard part of the way, there is only 10 minutes of easy around-looking walk left to the cottage.
We follow the path towards Kočna and Grintovec from the hut. It gets us to flat ground with mark H. Here the helicopter lands when it is necessary. Path now goes on the scree party overgrown with dwarf pine and rises towards the walls in front of us. After aproximately half an hour of walking we come to a crossroads where we turn left. After a couple of minutes we come to a start of the wall, where we put a helmet on start with a climbing part of the way. At first climbing is not hard but dangers are on the start of the climbing way. On ledges, where the path goes, is sprinkled sand which prevents a safe step. Wall becomes more steep and there is more and more security devices. Climbing on natural passes through channels, ravines and ledges follows. After two hours of climbing we come out from the wall on Mlinarsko sedlo saddle. Here is a crossroads where we turn left towards Dolgi hrbet and Skuta. Only 30 minutes of secured climbing path is left to the top. At first the path goes through South slopes of Dolgi Hrbet but with some help of security devices quickly brings us on a ridge. At first we walk on a ridge and here and there goes above 1000 metres high gulfs. This path is very dangerous in wet soon brings us to the top. Be careful on the storms. From the top of Dolgi hrbet we continue to the point where the path from bivouac under Grintovec joins. Here the problems end. Path encircles top of Štruca on the left side and drops through a little steep jumb where some wedges help us. Path brings us to a saddle between Štruca and Skuta. Only a 10 minutes long rise on gentle sloping slope of Skuta follows.

On the way: Češka koča na Spodnjih Ravneh (1542m), Mlinarsko sedlo (2332m), Dolgi hrbet (2473m)
