atavistTraverse   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2017


One benefit of being without a car, the freedom to go up and down in different countries. It's a rainy day so I took advantage of the lift from Pec Pod Snezkou, which saved me at least a few hours at a cost of 210 Czech units of currency. No views were lost so I didn't regret it much. I descended by trail to Karpacz, Poland. There were a few others on the trail, including one large school group. The rain finally stopped once I was well down the hill into Jelenia Gora.

The summit has at least two restaurants and a full service bar, gift shops and a church. During my brief visit I was the only visitor and the church was closed. I believe it can get crowded in the right circumstances.

rggSecond year in a row  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2017


Much nicer weather than last year, especially because there wasn't all that much wind. The actual summit was mostly in clouds, but below 1500 m or so visibility was fine.

I ascended from Karpacz via Sowia Dolia and then followed the east ridge.

yatsekFrom Kowary  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2016


I last climbed Śnieżka on 9 Sep 2016. It was the first time I'd done the route from Kowary and I wasn't disappointed – an exceptional elevation gain for the Karkonosze, hardly any people until Budniki. The descent to Karpacz via the valley of Łomniczka - pleasant as always, no crowd either.

Nice hike up to the summit from Pec. I went on going first to spend the night at Lucni Hut following a long but easy way (sometimes on paved road). very advisable to spend the night there and visit Europe's highest brewery and learn more about the Sudeten stories. From there, next day, easy ascent, again with wonderful weather up to summit (4km in distance but only 200 m to climb). Nice hike,nice view.

A first attempt in January 2010 got stuck in waist-deep snow. Returned in October and tamed the beast on a sunny day.
