Access to starting point:

We drive to Tacen and then keep driving by river Sava upwards towards Pirniče. We come to a crossroads behind village Vikrče. The left road goes towards Zgornje Pirniče and the right one goes towards Spodnje Pirniče.There is a parking lot near this crossroads and we park there.

Path description:

We start at the parking lot and orient towards Vikrče village where we come after few minutes of walking. In this village, a road branches slightly left upwards, towards start of the climbing way. Branch from the road is unmarked! After couple of ten metres of walking on this road, a worse road branches to the left and brings us to entrance of the climbing way. Here the indicator for a very demanding path orients us right upwards. A good marked path leads us first over a narrow gorge upwards, then a good secured crossing to the most demanding part follows. Path rises straight upwards on the wall. Some security devices are there to help us. When we beat vertical cramps we come on a more demanding terrain. We have to climb a short overhanging rock with some help of security devices. Path is easier from now on and rises steeply upwards through a forest. A little bit later we connect to Westrova pot path odpre lep razgled, on which I recomend a descen. Path continues rising through an overgrown forest on the East ridge of Grmada until we get to the top. The top offers a beautiful view.
