The Inkovska smer route (Inca route) follows the gully between Mali Ozebnik and Vrh Zelenic, then reaches the sunny grassy areas of Mali Ozebnik's E ridge. This route is worth a winter visit.

Go up the piercing stone on the other side of the pool and turn right (feel in the piercing stone), towards the breach [[waypoints/781249|Škrbina za Gradom]].

From the rift, follow the route to the [[roads/786870|col Čez Brežice], and from the pass Čez Brežice, continue the descent along the route through the Koritnica valley which passes again at the foot of the road (see Approach). 1.

Reach the summit by ridge E, then descend towards the S by an unmarked and not very visible path, but rather easy and short that goes down in bends along the upper slope of the partially grassy E face, towards the gap *Škrbina za Gradom*.

Then as above.<br/><br/>_This Adventure has been shared under the [Creative Commons Share Alike]( licence._
