Solo ascent via Velický žl'ab  Sucess!

I would have preferred to stay in the climbers accommodation at Sliezsky dom, but it was fully booked for the next couple of weeks. Instead, I started from Novy Smokovec, and that turned it into a long day. But as the forecast was excellent (sunny, and no chance of rain, let alone thunderstorms) I wasn't worried.

Via Batizovska probba  Sucess!

A sudden change in the weather two days earlier had turned the HighTatras into a winter wonderland. Had the summit all for ourselves.

Batizovska proba  Sucess!

My first peak in central part of High Tatras. From motorway they look really small and uninteresting in comparing with others same altitude mountains in Europe, but once you'll get in, you'll see that the beauty of Tatras is not just a rumors. From the top, one of the most interesting view for me. Gerlach is not a difficult mountain, in good weather, but really only for experienced climbers and hikers. About the obligation of having a guide. Rather save your money and don't feed this nonsense. On the way up you'll be probably threaten by guides to pay penalty. Stay calm, try to explain them, that you are experienced enough. They don't have got any moral right to do this, it's just a matter of their dishonest bussiness and a way to show to their clients how "necessary" they are.

Twice  Sucess!

Krcmárov žlab - Zleb Karczmarza - 2009/12/05
Great winter climb. My second visit on Gerlachovsky Stit, but the first so alpine experience in High Tatras. Beautiful route, climbed with Igi, Jck and Brade.

Normal route through Velicka Proba - 2009/08/02
Climbed with Igi, Rafal, Mariusz and mountain guide, Janek.
Nice and easy summer climb, but IMHO, recommended without any assistance of mountain guides, if possible.
Gets a bit complicated while leaving Velicky couloir and traversing Kotlovy Stit on a way toward the summit. Descent through Batizovska Proba.

Two times  Sucess!

Krcmárov žlab- Zleb Karczmarza- December 5, 2009
Fantastic couloir climb. The rocky step was in nasty ice conditions but the rest of the couloir was almost perfect. Endless steep snowfield traverses below the summit ridge. Brocken spectre on the top of Gerlachovsky stit. Very recomendable. Climbed with Radek (brade), Ania (Mooliczek) and Igor (Igi).

Martin's Route- July 14, 2009
Climbed with Radek (brade). After retreat in November we finished the route from Tetmajerovo Sedlo. Easier than we expected, perfect weather.

Normal route from Sliezsky dom  Sucess!

We set out from Sliezsky dom at 6am with my two younger brothers and our guide. The weather was fantastic - no wind, no clouds, phenomenal views. We were so pumped up from the beautiful views that we made it up in our guide's seasonal record 2:45. On the way down to Batizovska valley we really enjoyed the climbing parts and because it was so warm we ended up bathing in Batizovske pleso. It was a memorable trip for all of us .

Normal Route from Sliezsky dom  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed this fine peak in perfect weather from the west (Velicky route - about 4h)and descended via the Batisovsky couloir. We were guided by Peter Sperka, and accompanied by Ladislav Zadic and Vilem Stanke. We were privileged to witness the installation of the new summit logbook. Three TV crews(Czech, Slovak and Polish)broadcast the event.

By the evening  Sucess!

It was a long and hot day(after Batizovsky in the afternoon), we summitted Gerlach at 7pm in golden sunset rays, met 2 Czech climbers on the peak, great impressions as usual, descent the same way... Watch out! No more chains on the route in Batizovsky couloir what makes it a bit more demanding and interesting.
