Access to starting point:

We drive from Kamnik into valley Kamniška Bistrica. We drive past a house and continue driving on a forest road towards Kokrsko sedlo (saddle). We go to left in both crossroads and drive past Žagana peč till a parking lot at cargo cable railway going on Kokrsko sedlo.

Path description:

We start at the cableway from where the marks lead us to the path in the middle of a high grass (in summer). Right after a few minutes the grass dissapears and there is a nice forest path in front of us. The path is pretty steep but not too much. We get to the steel wire soon, but it's not that usable if it's not raining or icy. After half an hour we get out of the forest and cross pretty steep ravine. We can see Kokrsko sedlo from here, but the cottage can't be seen until we get to Kokrsko sedlo. We continue through a bushy scree below the walls steeply ascending. Be careful not to trigger the rocks we're walking on. In the snow, the last ascend to the sedlo is dangerous because it's slippery and avalanches can be triggered. The view towards Storžič and Grintovec open up at the cottage. There is also winter bivouac (its open when the cottage is closed).
We continue on a steep rise towards North. We come to a crossroads after 15 minutes and turn right towards Skuta. The start of the path is relatively hard to find because it is hidden by grass.. We soon come to a narrow pass called Mala Vratca. Path turns left behind Vrata and starts dropping. We drop to a 100 metres height. This drop has some wedges (danger of slide). Path starts rising again and we can soon se little bivouac. This is bivouac under Grintavec and has 4 beds and is open all the time. We continue on a valley under walls of Grintovec. We come to a crossroads where we orient straight (Kamniško sedlo and Okrešelj right). After a couple of minutes we again come to a crossroads and here we turn right towards Skuta. The path now goes under the walls of Dolgi hrbet and we soon reach a more demanding part of the way. We have to climb over a small wall between Dolgi hrbet and Štruca all the way to the mountain crest. Since no protection is provided – be careful! When path start to descent we turn right (south) to pathless terrain and reach the top in 3 minutes.
