In Sobkovy Zlab, Ladovy Stit West face
Memorable, adventurous and unsuccessful Ladovy winter attempt by the route of the first conquerors of the peak from 19th century.
Well equipped(not mentioning the fact I forgot to take my ski poles that day...) we left skis below in that huge couloir and reached altitude of something over 2300 metres, quite close the point where we planned to traverse into the rocky ridge of Suchy Hreben leading to the summit dome, when sun began to shine strongly and everything started to fall on our heads from above... Forced to evacuate ourselves from these steep snows immediately, so carefully as quickly we were getting back down Javorova valley...
