Ascent Trip Report

From S, Suhadolnik trailhead as previous descriptions, well paintmarked all the way to summit. NB new signs say Cez Tasko route closed, I followed signed diversion R (E, Stara Pot) up thru nice woodland then L up bouldery gully a short way (a few bits of ironwork to aid progress) before exiting L at 46.33792° N, 14.53089° E and climbing steeply before contouring to rejoin route described by Petter; see GPS track.

I arrived late evening from Austria and slept at trailhead, 2 cars already there. Depart 0610, bright morning but thankfully in shade until beyond hut, location called Kokrsko sedla on OpenStreetMap (which by the way shows the route quite accurately, e.g. OsmAnd+ app). Above hut I met a woman and young girl, apparently uncertain of route. I assured them I was on easy route, showed the printed description, they happily followed. Large group of locals ahead then a few others passed before summit, which is in and out of cloud, I've missed best of views, but impressive limestone scenery, lots of verticality.

Summit has a viewfinder with a trig block either side, each with a metal marker bolt. Up in 3h25, 15 mins on top hoping clouds would clear, 2h20 down, 6h round trip, enjoyed cool of woodland, trailhead pleasant with car in shade, raucous picnic soon ends leaving me to lunch in peace and recheck forecasts for Triglav which I can hopefully do tomorrow
