Craggiest Cirque between Alps and North Sea
The headwall of the craggiest cirque between the Alps and the North Sea: Wielki Kocioł Śnieżny (Great Snowy Cauldron) in the highest mountain range of the Sudetes.

Here is the winter scenery, photographed while climbing.

Late spring, shot in the 1980's (or perhaps '70s).

For several years now the trail has been closed until 15 June. The park authorities maintain this is necessary in order to protect nesting birds.

That's one amazing headwall ... is there a lake
up there?

You'll never believe what I saw here in AZ the other day - I saw a "Red Fox."

It somewhat resembles the Polish Fox, but is
probably a bit more red. NICE photo!!!

Thanks! Pretty hard to get enough light.
Not bad, anyway, and the scenery is similar to that of
Mt Washington (played by Mt Śnieżka/Snezka here) and its ravines on the East Coast: winter scenery
There's a tiny moraine lake (actually two)

I hope, 'craggiest' is a word, sounds fine, even kind of exciting, to me but you should know better, I think:) And thanks, Larry, for your questions, which prompted me to extend the description.

I visited it only once in summer 1996, I remember I really enjoyed the area.

I've been many times and hope to go again - it's like a tiny piece of the Tatras - but I've never been to the Bieszczady:)

Makes me think of Cwm Cywarch.:-) AFAIR 'twas the 1st half of a June.

Here's a set of photos taken by those who have climbed the walls of the cwm in the past two decades. (The finest crags are often referred to as "wardrobes" since they're anything but stable.)

Well beyond my reach but I couldn't agree more.
