Route Description

From Priečne Sedlo turn in the north-west direction and climb up by a wide ridge to somewhere about a half of ridge’s altitude. Next turn on the left (Vel’ká Studená Valley’s side) to a scree-rocky chute, which goes parallel to our ridge. Follow this chute on a little pass in the ridge. On the pass turn left and climb a narrow edge of the ridge (here almost horizontal) on the top (45 min).

Voted 10/10

The Prieène Sedlo is located in the mountain range that separates the valleys Mala Studená Dolina (eastern side) and Vel’ká Studená Dolina (on the western side).

The trail leading up to the saddle on the Mala Studená Dolina side is very steep, because it is attached to a high angle slope. Using the provided chains that are attached to the stone is highly recommened.

Passing hikers from the other side is not always easy and can become very complicated in situations when an unexperienced hiker "freezes" in fear, unable to further climb up nor down and letting go of the chains.

The trail is not recommended to beginners or people who are afraid of heights. It is suggested to approach the saddle from the Mala Studená Valley side to climb up the steep slope, rather than down.
