Divá veža; Dzika Turnia; Roter Flossturm; Vörös-patak-torony

First touristic ascent:
In summer: Antonina Englisch, Karol Englisch i Johann Hunsdorfer (senior), 14 .07.1898 r.
In winter conditions: Lajos K. Horn i Jenő Serényi, 17 .04.1911 r.

It’s a lovely and outstanding Tatra’s crag. Polish and Slovak name comes from sharp, steep shape and wild look.
