5 members of Szentendre Sleepwalkers baseball team from Hungary climbed the summit on a beautiful day on the normal route from Borovec before taking part on a tournament in Blagoevgrad. We did it in 5 hours up though having also inexperienced hikers with us. Huts still derelict in early June but the station on the summit was attended.
The forecast showed a nice break in the weather (the summer of 2005 had a lot of rain) and I decided not to wait further, heading to Borovetz in the early morning. It was a very pleasant day with nice views from the top, about 6 hours round trip, hiking the trail from Borovetz with a nice lunch at the hut. It was good to do some hiking again in the mountains that I've grown up in!
