Route Climbed: Through Batizovska Proba Date Climbed: 27 August 2001
Great ascent in perfect weather conditions !
Some adventures on way up with slovak guides ...luckily everything ended well ,I climbed the highest Tatra peak and have wonderful possibilty to admire for over one hour brilliant panorama of "sea of peaks" in all directions !
No serious difficulties by dry rock ,possible orientation problems in quite complicated highest section around the ridge by bad weather conditions (fog)
Route Climbed: Velicka proba - Gerlach - Batizovska proba Date Climbed: 6 August 2002
Quite a nice climb , but in bad weather you might get a bit disoriented and lose the easiest route , unfortunately we have nearly no view at all from the summit and storm caught us on the way down from Sliezsky dom
Route Climbed: standard Date Climbed: September 1998
My first "climb" beyond established trails - we had a local guide who kept on talking and talking all the way. Weather was nothing much so no views from the summit - but we were happy to be on the top of what used to be Czechoslovakia...
