Škrlatica, historically also known as Suhi plaz ("Dry Avalanche"), is a mountain in the Slovenian Julian Alps. With its summit at 2,740m above sea level, it is the second highest peak in Slovenia (after Triglav at 2,864m) and the third highest in the Julian Alps as a whole (after Triglav and Jôf di Montasio / Montaž at 2,754m).
The mountain's name derives from the feminine adjectival form of the Slovene word škrlat, a cognate of the colour scarlet, referring to the dramatic reddish-purple shade assumed by its steep northwestern rockface when viewed in the light of the sunset. The name Suhi plaz refers to a scree below Mount Spodnji Rokav.
The first recorded ascent of Škrlatica was made from the southern side on 24 August 1880 by Julius Kugy, accompanied by the mountain guide Andrej Komac and the hunter Matija Kravanja.
There's an alpine trail (T4) leading to the summit.
The nearest mountain hut is Bivak I v Veliki Dnini located 621m/2 037ft NNW of the summit.
