will the 10.8.5 combo upgrade from 10.6.8

I'm trying to upgrade the operating system on a 2 yr old MacBook Pro from 10.6.8 to10.8.5. Will the 10.8.5 combo release do that? Or to I need to go to 19.8.0 as an intermediate upgrade?

    You need to purchase OS X Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store. You can't just download the 10.8.5 combo update, that's for Macs that already have 10.8 installed.
