mdouOn the border  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2009


Passed on top of Mount Rysy on my way from Poland to Slovakia. Loved the metal chains on the way up. Adorable mountain culture in the Tatras: good refuges, plenty of mountain sheep dogs and donkeys.

StefanAlone  Sucess!
Late season climb from Krakow. Left Krakow at 6 in the morning, back at 7 in the evening. 6 hours round trip. Due to late season and little amount of snow easy to run, no crampons needed but above Morskie Oko only 4 people seen the whole trip. Clear skies all the way!

Arnie777Beautiful but busy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2013


Excellent hike/scramble. We did it in 1 long day, the walk into the massif is long, but easy and well paved. From the lakes it is a lot of 'stairs' till you reach the final scramble. Prepare to be exhausted if you do all of it in 1 day!

thomasalbrechtsenMy first national highpoint!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2013


Couldn't imagine a better first national highpoint. Excellent hike/scramble from Morskie Oko, just epic Polish scenery and a 'pointy' summit that makes you feel like you're 'up there'. Beautiful Tatry.

Started in Štrbské Pleso, summited four hours later and enjoyed a cold beer at Chata pod Rysmi afterwards. Our first taste of High Tatras magic.

I climbed with Sene on the normal route from South. On the top we waited for the sunset and went down to the renewed Rysy Hut.

Climbed with my dad and my friend Thomas. The upper lake was frozen over and was completely snowed in the rest of the way up except for the last 100 meters. A few turned back, but we made it. A great hike/climb.

Attempted Rysy in a snowstorm. After getting to the hut we could not find to the trail or see the peak--or anything for that matter. We descended. Saw some Russians coming down the icy descent in jeans and tennis shoes and taping ripped ponchos onto themselves. A nice day with a dissapointing result.

ncstNice hike from Morski Oko  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2011


Started early from the chalet. Very nice mountain hut but crowded during the day. In three hours to the summit. It was good to be there early before the crowds arrived. Great hike, first past the two lakes then up the rocks. Amazing views. We were in Krakau by evening.

islandborn11My first, best climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2004


Hiked with my buddy Kevin and his wife back when we all lived as teachers in Poland. I was just getting into mountain hiking and wanted to start with something manageable but this was a doozy. I almost bit off more than I could chew. From Zakopane it is definitely a full day up and back. Don't bother with the horse ride up to Morskie Oko, it is slow and very uncomfortable. The top was crowded and I was bushed, but we made it down before nightfall. Overall an awesome experience, still waiting to tackle my next national high point.
