fast climbing before the rain.
Climbed with Mariusz.
Zadni Koscielec by Plyta Lerskiego and south ridge 11.09.2011
We climbed Plyta Lerskiego (solid II+ UIAA) to Mylna pass and then via the south ridge only to Zadny Koscielec. Lack of time because of rescue on Zamarla Turnia (we couldn't hear each other becuase of helicopter) and crowds on the ridge...However good dry rock and fun.
Climbed with my colleague from climbing course-Bartek.
Second time January 2009
Very cold winter's day -15C.Trip by normal marked route with Natalia.
First time autumn 2005
Nice hike by marked trail.Trip with Asia.

|KRZYS||West Face - Lobby Instruktorskie, Sprezyna |
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2011
|Lobby Instruktorskie (VII)|
Interesting and safe route. Just few passages with own protection. Two last pitches are delightful. Crux without problems. Run to the summit without shoes.
Hmm... Classic route, however I don't like it. First pitch in easy ground, some old pitons. Second firstly by nice and exposed slab. Next the traverse between two roofs (crux) - more uncomfortable than hard place. Last pitch - 20m in chim. 3rd team member didn't want even to try the crux, so I've done it twice to take our eq out.
Splendid summer day in Tatras.
Byczkowski' route attempt, total wet face, it was more swimming the crawl than climbing:) Rappel two pitches before the top after traverse to the Lobby.

|mooliczek||Gnojek and Zalupa H route |
Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2010
|Gnojek route (SW face) is short, but interesting route. We climbed in mid-fall weather, quite foggy. After having summited Koscielec, we went down and got back on the trail, to follow another route, on Zadni Koscielec west face: Zalupa H (beautiful and quite exicitig, due to some icy passages - total fog, no views at all).|
Climbed with Igi.

|mooliczek||South ridge - Koscielce Ridge |
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2010
|Very nice route, done in a great company and good weather. Solid rock, some quite exposed passages, varied and interesting. Technically, not very demanding, but definitely worth recommendation. |
Climbed with Igi and Jck.

|Setka (IV) |
Fantastic, classic route. The most notable points: Traverse, Overhang, Black wall - not difficult, solid granite, just a piece of perfect climbing. Very recommendable route.
Zalupa H (III) and Gnojek (III) routes combination
Classic, easy and not very long routes. Good for the beginning of the summer season in the Tatras. Well protected.
South ridge - Grań Kościelców (II-III)
Very interesting, not very difficult (UIAA III) route. Took the way from the West to Mylna Pass then by the ridge through Zadni koscielec and Koscielcowa Pass to the main summit. Mostly dry rock, some nasty snow passages, nice weather. Good day out.
Climbed with Ania (Mooliczek) and Igor (Igi).
Been also two times on the top by the marked route (11 Aug 1997 and 29 Oct 2005).

|arturf||Risky ascent and pleasant descent |
Date Climbed: May 2, 2007
|Nice climb. In general, the weather was OK, but the wind was ice-cold and snow firn was hard as rock. Have to mention, that it would be smarter to retreat, as we didn't have ice-axes and crampons (we didn't expect such weather), but we did it anyway. We were lucky, that when we were on the summit, the wind had blown away all clouds and Sun had begun to melt the snow, so the descent was much less dangerous.|
