Route Climbed: Normal Hiking Trail from Slovak Side Date Climbed: May 3~4?? 1990
Some snow still about but a nice 1/2 day hike to the top. There was no wind that day so smog levels were very bad and one could harly see over to Gerlach but nice none the less.
Also I could not go over to the Polish summit as I had no visa for Poland. I would be up there the one day a month when a boarder gaurd was about.
Just a side note:
Smog was a very bad problem in this range when I first whent there in the early 90s but it actually has improved quite alot in the past few years with the use of natural gas for heating instead of coal.
