Thanks!
Not so difficult as I thought. I was worrying about the route but it was pure fun, even in not-so-good conditions.

Rowniez pozdrawiam.

Not so difficult for you I think:)you have more experience as me in climbing:)
when I was climbing from Stuedlhutte to EJH I was looking at this ridge.I would like to climb it some day,because it looked very interesting.I suppose that I didn't see all it's nice moments from my trail..

I'm not a good rock climber (luckily Radek /brade/ is) but the route doesn't require much technique. We did it all the way up simul-climbing (while majority of parties did it with bealying- but it takes too much time) and I was leading all the way up...that means it is not very difficult. The crux is UIAA IV, but it's only few meters. The rest is II-III, rock is very good (but not as nice as in Tatras).
Generally speaking, the ridge is interesting, much more than the normal routes (I climbed Grossglockner in 2005 from Franz Josef Hohe).
We would like to give a try on Palavicinrinne some day...

In my opinion- yes. And believe me: Radek dreamt about this route for a long time, I didn't. I don't like pure-rock routes (prefer mixed or snow/ice) but on Stuedlgrat I had a lot of fun.
That would be a challenge for us. We think about may 2008, but, you know how it is in Poland. There's a long way from plans to reality...

I dream about trekking in Himalaya..and what?? it is also long way from plans to reality...But during this long way I have to improve my condition( I think extra climbing experience won't be necessary),gather money and mountain's accessories..But inspite of this I'm optimistic:)) and you should be also!!Alps are not so far from us..My 5-days trip to Austria in May costed about 450pln(petrol for 3 person,food,sleeping in a tent or winter room:)This amount includes also good lunch in Salzburg:)
How do you and Radek travel to Alps usual?

Tekking in Himalaya? Fantastic...If I had a chance to go there I would like to do some climbing...
Alps- you're definitely right. In past years I go to Alps (also with Radek) by hitchhiking- it took a long time but was very cheap (300 pln for 2-3 weeks). Now, when Radek have a car we have a chance for some more comfortable travels. Problem is that we have too many plans, even while considering only Alps (winter, spring, summer...).
Your plans for the upcoming time?

I leave near to Tatra,I need 1,5h in order to reach Zakopane or Tatranska Lomnica,Smokoviec..so you know when I'm in most of my free weekends:))
I have just lost my climbing partner Natalia-(she change work and now she has started to work in "straz graniczna").I have to wait for her till June 2008.She is during training now..but after that I really don't know what will be about our next years plans..I would like to be at least once a year in Alps.I'm thinking about M.Blanc next year..or some easy 4000 peak,perhaps Alainhorn..
But this winter probably I will be in Tatra like always or at ski:)

Thank you Charles!
I think that Die Kanzel is one of the most 'photographic' part of the ridge. During our ascent there was some snow higher on the route, but we weren't forced to use crampons until descent via Glocknerleitl.
Have you got the photo of Die Kanzel during your climb?

Cheers and Merry Christmas

No, unfortunately I have no photo of that bit :o((. Like you we got away without crampons until the descent. It goes to show how the conditions can change doesn´t it!

Yes and merry Christmas to you too---and stay safe in 2008
