Ok, want some quizz ?
- What's the only river in Poland that flows into the Black sea ?


That would be all those rivers which flow from Poland near Jabłonka into Jezioro Orawskie, which form the Orawa which itself through the Wag is a tributary of the Danube, as well as the Strwiąż near Krościenko in Bieszczady which is a tributary of the Dniestr.

The Klikawa of Kudowa-Zdrój, the Dzika Orlica which forms the southern border of Ziemia Kłodzka, Szkło in Okrzeszyn, a village south of Lubawka and the Jizera, which forms the border with Czech Republic south of Świeradów-Zdrój.

Trójmorski Wierch, in the eastern part of Ziemia Kłodzka

Few others :

- On which peaks of the Tatras make the main ridge start and stop being the continental water divide ?

- Which Polish mountain allows watching both the Tatras and the Karkonosze by clear weather ?

- Where from the Odra collects Carpathian water ?

Where is the geographic centre of Europe? :)

Do not try and answer before watching this film, which I found on Tomek Lodowy's website.

Cubryna, everything east of there flows out into the Dunajec and eventually ends up in the Baltic by means of Wisła, and the western end is Wołowiec, everything west of there flows into the Wag and will eventually end up in the Black Sea by means of Danube.

I've only seen Tatry and Karkonosze once, and that was from one of the new Q400's operated by Eurolot... I suppose that doesn't count... :P I think Śnieżnik would be the best candidate though...

From Cieszyn Silesia. Mainly Beskid Śląsko-Morawski and the western part of Beskid Śląski. And I'm not going to name all the (Czech) tributaries, although there is one which forms the border with Poland and that's the Olsa, which flows right through the city centre of Cieszyn.

That's not me on the pic, but I did climb a couple of times at the bunker in Berlin. The lower graded routes. Cool outing.


Nice!

I'm still waiting for the first bolted trad route done in Świebodzin though :D

Nonsense my friend nonsense :lol: :lol:
The trad potential exists in itself everywhere so Świebodzin is full of trad.
Now if there's a bolt it's not trad, though potentially very cool as well.

happy go local freedom forever fighter borut


Well, my neighbour was talking about climbing it, possibly making an FA, and then bolt it on the way down to make it easier for others...

What is that called?

No. East from Śnieżnik stand few other mastodonts of the Hruby Jesenik. You need to go more North. The answer is Biskupia Kopa, despite I've heard also from remote observations of both Tatras and Krk from... Sw Anny !

Amongst the tributaries you've got also the huge dam below Lysa Hora, I can't recall the name...
