Nice winter route which can be done easily from Borovets ski resort. You take cable car to Jastrebets (2350) and after one more drive with Poma-lift you reach Markujik Ridge (2550). One can climb from this place along the rocky Aleko Ridge or easier ski down to Musala hut (2390) and walk up to the beautiful Ice Lake (2700) where you are just below the summit. SW ridge has fixed ropes what makes ascent safe even in bad conditions. Tea on the top is great, thank you! I climbed the peak with my Dad during our last Bulgarian ski season.
