|Good page for a first! And nice pictures! You could include more information in the "Getting There" section like the numbers of the roads you are referring to. I suppose most of us at SP would have some trouble getting there, wouldn't we? Another nice feature would be info on where one can spend the night. Can you free-camp somewhere, etc.|
Thanks for sharing!

|Perhaps some info on maps and guidebooks would be useful. Nice pictures.|

|Thanks for information. I corrected my page of Swinica so you can see the map and something more.|
Tell me...you are from Poland? I saw your page...

|This is a good winter mountain show, the only one within Central Europe.|

|The page needs updating and bringing up to today's standards.|

|And I'm really happy to see a decent Swinica page! Now I'm looking forward to a little chapter about the technical climbing routes, like Walentkowa Arete (UIAA III? Or much harder?). As for the name of the mountain, I find the other explanation much more convincing – that Swinica bears a resemblance to a swine's head/snout while viewed from the north. It's also worth remembering that in the area there are plenty of toponyms derived from the shepherds' names (they say Niebieska Turnia, literally "Blue Crag" as well)|

|Any information about the Walentkowa is welcome. IMHO this is the kind of route that has its place out of the Swinica page and it its own page, because non-marked, technical, and whose content wouldn't fit proportionally with other "normal" routes I shortly described.|
The SP rule is "do it, post it". I have climbed illegally a couple of times but not that one...
As for the etymology, it is welcome. I'll include it. But I read the one I wrote in many other places.
