From the top of Mala Mojvstroka you have a wonderful view. The ?pik-?krlatica-Prisank massif is close at hand to the east; Triglav dominates the southeast, then Kanajavec; the Trenta veers deeply away to the south; Krn is on the horizon next; Bav?ki Grintavec is closer at hand on the southwest. You can just make out Jalovec hiding behind the nearby Veliki Mojvstoka while Mangart towers just west of the Ponca-Venian ridge making up the west wall of the Tamar valley. To the north and west are the Dolomites, the Gross Glöckner and innumerable ridges in southern Austria. Far below is Slemenovica ?pikova, the little peak I had enjoyed in the morning. As you sit here admiring the view people come up from the north side as they have successfully clambered up the difficult Hanzova Pot which is a protected route leading up the north face of Mojvstroka from Sleme below.

To get up here the normal way, you start from Vr?iè Pass - 3 euro to park - and clamber up a steep path to gain an obvious notch on the Grebenec - the ridge coming off the east side of Mojvstroka. Then you scamper up the Grebenec through loose scree - trekking poles are very helpful both in up and down directions. The way takes about two hours gaining some 742 meters of elevation. You will not be alone up there.
