I had to give up at 1800 m. because of the strong rain and the correlated avalanche hazard

interesting mountain range, still very snowy in the beginning of may

It was great feeling to climb Rysy in first ever Tatra season ,good weather conditions .


The highest point of Poland and the highest tourist accesible (legally by marked route ,without guide) peak of Tatra Mountains .

By the good weather ,incredible view of High Tatras (panorama of 100 peaks and 12 lakes!) from end to end ,east to west ...not to describe ...

Polish route definetely more demanding than slovakian one(no serious difficulties by dry rock) and horribly tiring ,great scenery .

Climbed mostly in fog. Occasionally views of Zabi Kon, Ganek and Vysoka. Observed a big rock avalanche near the wall of Kazalnica.

I climbed the peak with my wife (her highest summit til now). Unfortunately there was some kind of party in the Rysy hut, so we went down in a hurry, and arrived in dark to the valley.

I ascended this peak, which summit lies on

the Slovak-Polish border with 2 my friends in

bad weather. Because the fog we couldn´t see

any other peaks. Most of the time it rained. It was

a great experience for me.

JScolesRoute Climbed: Normal Hiking Trail from Slovak Side Date Climbed: May 3~4?? 1990  Sucess!


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.
