Route Climbed: From Cierna Javorova Valley via Szymkowy and Maly Szymkowy gullies Date Climbed: 4th September 2005
Everything would be great if not the strange atmosphere of the day ...in the neighbouring valley of Kolova at Modra Turnia Crag one polish climber lost his life... ,I have only seen a HS helicopter flying over my head in Cierna Javorova breaking the silence of this wonderful place ...
Nervous climbing by the threshold in horribly crumbly Szymkowy gully ,some problems just under the summit ...Due to clouds hanging at the level of mountain peaks I haven't had much to admire from the summit ,descent the same way ,I just haven't had enough "health" to try descending exposed Papirusowa Drabina ledge to Velka Zmrzla Dolina ,maybe next time !
