Prisank also Prisojnik is a 2547 m high mountain located above the valleys of Mlinarica, Krnica and Suha Pišnica. It is a mighty sprawling mountain, which shows its frightening northern wall towards Kranjska Gora or. crossing Vršič. Two marked and protected paths run through it, which are a challenge and pleasure only for experienced mountaineers. From the top where the entry box with the stamp is located, a beautiful view of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps opens up.
Prisojnik or Prisank is an extremely extensive mountain, which has no precedent in the Eastern Julian Alps. In the east, it connects to the Razor massif through a deep notch in Škrbina (1989 m). In the south, the congested and grassy slopes descend into the Trenta Valley. On the west side, Vršič separates it from Mojstrovka. In the north, a mighty wall rises above the valley of Suha Pišnica and Krnica. Prisojnik has several important peaks. The highest peak Prisojnik, after which the mountain is named, is 2547 m high. In the extreme west of the mountain towards Vršič is the pre-peak Kraj Sten (2311 m) with precipice walls. Near the main peak to the east rise three towers Zvonikov (2438 m), further towards Škrbina Zadnji Prisajnik (2392 m). In the northern ridge between Suha Pišnica and Krnica, there are Mali Prisajnik (2215 m), Galičica (2078 m) and Prednja glava (1684 m). Prisojnik, like all the Julian Alps, is built of Mesozoic limestone and dolomite.
Prisojnik is known for three natural attractions: Prednje okno, Zadnje okno and Ajdovska deklica.
The front window is the largest and most famous natural window in the Julian Alps. It is in the western ridge. We can see it nicely from the road between Koča na Gozdu and the Vršič pass. It was formed by the weathering of a rock arch. The window is already mentioned by Valvasor in the Glory of the Duchy of Carniola. A very demanding "Kopiščarjeva pot", also called "Jeseniška pot", leads through the window; It is named after the mountain guide Anton Kravanja - Kopiščar (1889-1953) from Trenta, who built it and maintains it in PD Jesenice.
The last window is in the ridge between Zadnji Prisojnik and Škrbina; a very demanding Jubilee route leads through it. Tine Mihelič wrote in the Julian Alps mountain guide that "because of its beautiful shape, it resembles a Gothic church".
All the important approaches and transitions were already known to the locals, shepherds and hunters in the last century. The north-west wall was climbed in various directions by wild hunters from Trenta. On December 25, 1905, the famous Kranjska Gora guide Janez Pečar - Bobek (1861-1949) made a championship ascent through the Front Window to the top of Prisojnik. Dr. On July 22, 1889, Kugy and Bois de Chesne, accompanied by Trenta guide Andrej Komac and Bovec guide Marko, were the first to climb the northwest wall of Prisojnik. Even today, the walls of Prisojnik are the destination of many alpinists, and many mountaineers come to the top due to the relatively easy access on the south side. Prisojnik is also a checkpoint of the Path of Friendship of the Three Lands.
The view from Prisojnik is among the most beautiful in our Alps. On the northeast and east sides, beyond Krnica, we can see the Martuljek group with Špik and Škrlatica and Dovški Gamsovec. In the southeast, Razor rises nearby, and behind it we see Triglav. In the south, deep below us is the valley of Trenta with the Soča, on its left Veliko Špičje, on the right Trentski Pelc and Bavški Grintavec, and in between a little further on stands Krn. From the Kanin Mountains in the southwest, the view walks over the Loka wall to Mangrt, Jalovec and Rateške Ponce and further north to the Carnic and Zilja Alps with Dobrač. Just in front of us is Mojstrovka on the west side, and in the north we can see the Vršiška road, Kranjska Gora and the western part of the Karavanke. With good visibility, we can see the mighty backdrop of the High and Low Tours on the northern horizon.
