Ridge’s shoulder above Kotovo sedlo (2300 m) - Koča v Tamarju (1106 m) - Planica (960 m).
From the parking lot in Planica (960 m) follow the gravel road (3.4 km) to Planinski dom in Tamar. During the winter, when the snow is in the valley, there is a cross-country trail on this road and you can start on skis. From March onwards, when the snow melts, you have to walk with your skis strapped to your backpack.
Immediately after the mountain hut, follow the signs of the summer trail. If the markings are not visible, look for the direction through the beech forest towards the right edge of the valley. After twenty minutes you arrive on the snowfields above the forest border.
Continue along the narrow valley below the walls of Šit where the slope of the ascent increases and the width of the passage narrows. This part is often icy, ski crampons and regular crampons are essential equipment that should at least be in the backpack.
Ascend through the ravine below the top of Jalovec where the slope’s incline gradually levels. In good conditions it is possible to continue straight up through Jalovčev ozebnik (a picturesque couloir below Jalovec). Otherwise the regular trail turns right, ascending up below the walls to a huge, unmistakable boulder.
The tired ones can finish the ascent at the boulder. But the less tired can continue along the open plains to the right, upwards to the indistinct ridge’s shoulder (2300 m), just below the beginning of the rocky walls. These 200 additional meters of altitude from the boulder onwards are definitely worth the effort, as they open up a view over the precipice’s ridges of Šit, Travnik and Mojstrovka to the central Julian Alps on one side and Mangart on the other.
Ski in the direction of the ascent. On the upper section, the slopes are wide enough to freely pick the line of your choice, while the choices become more restricted as the narrow ravine is approached below Šit. This ravine should be approached with caution as it is often susceptible to hard pack and ice.
Ski down all the way to the mountain hut. If there is snow in the valley, you can continue on skis, otherwise return to the parking lot on foot.
If in spring there is no more snow on the gravel road to the mountain hut - Koča v Tamarju , it can be accessed by a mountain bike.
