Nad Šitom Glava

'Nad Šitom Glava' or 'Šitna Glava' is a 2000-meter-mountain with the easiest and fastest access in Slovenia, when the road to Vršič is negotiable. Despite this, it is much less popular than its famous neighbor Mala Mojstrovka. A great short tour that offers splendid views on the mountains between Špik and Prisojnik.

The starting point is Vršič pass (1611 m), on the road 'Kranjska Gora – Bovec'. In case the road is not wholly negotiable due to snow, you have to park lower, which can make the tour much longer.

Description:
From Vršič ascend westwards directly or in hair-pins across the wide & steep slope. Soon you will notice a clear saddle called Vratca on your left, where the 'usual' path to Mojstrovka leads, but on the far right opens a terrain towards Šitna Glava. Traverse the wide slope towards the right and ascend to the highest part of the ridge. This is Šitna Glava – a 'humble' neighbor of Mala Mojstrovka. Descend in the direction of the ascent.
