Hi Jacek, so you are healthy now! I'm glad you had so nice weather. Did you summit Gerlach or Zadni Gerlach summits? I'm interestend in info, whether the tougher routes are more often climbed since mountain guides succeeded in lobbing for having sort of monopoly on normal routes. Did you meet any NP ranger or mountain guide trying to make you go back? Congrats once again and thanks for any info. Cheers, Tomas :)
It took us 6 hour of climbing from our bivy spot to Zadny Gerlach summit where we arrived at about 2 pm. We had to escape from the route by Walowy Zlab. Otherwise we would be forced to spend another night on the ridge, near the summit of Gerlachovsky Stit.
We met a Ranger in Velicka Valley. Checked our documents, asked which route we intend to climb and wished us all the best...
Hope to create Martinovka route on Monday/Tuesday.
Where is this place??...do/did you use ropes to summit this peak? What do you wear on your feet just boots or crampons? Very impressive summit. Congratulations my friend...
That's the highest summit of Tatra Mountains, Gerlachovsky Stit /2655 m/ seen from Tetmajerovo Sedlo. The route follows the ridge and is rated UIAA II-III. Rope is necessary, a set a medium- sized nuts and a good weather/conditions. But there are few 'backside' routes rated 0+/I.
