SzaniUherkovichUnogranized in raining  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2016


It was raining when I arrived to the trailhead. I was not disappointed because I expected that it would rain, and I prepared with proper gear. But when I wanted to start, I didn't find my waterproof boots. I found only 2 pairs of non-waterproof boots in my car. OK, then let me put on my waterproof softshell jacket. That was not in the car, neither! No, I won't give it up! I will do the tour anyway! I started the tour, and after 30 minutes I was soaked wet. At the beginning of the tour the route was evident, but later I wanted to check where exactly I was. Yes, but I had left the map in the car! Let's look at the positive side: it could remain dry. No problem, I knew the way without map. Then at half way I arrived to a steep hillside. It was very slippery. OK, then let me use my poles. I had left them in the car, too. Still I didn't give it up! Finally I arrive to the summit. It was in clouds. I didn't see anything, and there was freezy wind, while I was totally soaked. What a pleasure it was! But I can't say that this hiking was just negative. On return after a while there were some sunny moments. And after being in the car again, I could enjoy the seat heating

SzaniUherkovichToo late
Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2014


I started the ascend too late, at 14:20, from Kumpfmühle. It is in altitude 545 m. There was 15-20 cm fresh snow on the way. By 16:20 I was near the peak, only 1 km far from it, and I was in altitude of 1170 m. But it was too late: it was sunset time, and I was alone on the whole mountain, and from this point the peak was in clouds. I decided to return. Even so it was completely dark by the time I got back to the car
