Cubryna rises over Rybiego Potoku / Rybiho Potoka Valley in the north-west, its branch Za Mnichem Valley in north, Piargova / Piarżysta Valley in the east and Mengusovská / Mięguszowiecka Valley in the south. By the north-west ridge connects with Zadni Mnich / Druhý Mnich (through Przełączka Pod Zadnim Mnichem / Štrbina za Druhým Mnichem), to the south-east connects with Wielki Mięguszowiecki Szczyt / Mengusovský Štit through Hińczowa Pass / Hincovo Sedlo and to the south-west with Kôprovský Štit / Koprowy Szczyt.
The name comes from the highlander dialect: “Cubryna” means a crop of hair. Why? Well, its crest is said to look dishevelled :)
1. Via Galerie Cubryńskie to Hińczowa/Hincovo Pass. At the pass turn right and follow a distinct path up the rather broad here Cubryna’ south-east ridge. Bypass the first crag on the ridge, then come back onto the main ridge, rocky and pretty narrow, to the summit (big exposure, rock difficulty about UIAA I).
2. Right Abgarowicz - not so interesting as the previous route, but in winter the safest (but it does not mean that it is safe under any conditions!)
3. From Hincova Valley – the most popular route from the Slovakian side
4. From Piargova Valley – from Morskie Oko via Wrota Chałubińskiego or Pod Zadnim Mnichem Pass
