Kościelec, 27.08.2018  Sucess!

Started from Toporowa Cyrhla, went through Czarna Dolina Gąsienicowa Nice weather, but there was a thick fog at Czarny Staw Gąsienicowy. Descended through Zielona Dolina Gąsienicowa. The trail form Karb to the summit is one of my favourite trails in Polish Tatras.

Few times,few routes

02.08.2014 Zadni Koscielec-Setka (IV)Quite long route with fantastic granit passages.Great sunny day in Tatra with Jacek

14.08.2013 Zadni Koscielec by Zalupa H II UIAA and Koscielec by Gnojek III UIAA
fast climbing before the rain.
Climbed with Mariusz.

Zadni Koscielec by Plyta Lerskiego and south ridge 11.09.2011
We climbed Plyta Lerskiego (solid II+ UIAA) to Mylna pass and then via the south ridge only to Zadny Koscielec. Lack of time because of rescue on Zamarla Turnia (we couldn't hear each other becuase of helicopter) and crowds on the ridge...However good dry rock and fun.
Climbed with my colleague from climbing course-Bartek.

Second time January 2009
Very cold winter's day -15C.Trip by normal marked route with Natalia.

First time autumn 2005
Nice hike by marked trail.Trip with Asia.

West Face - Lobby Instruktorskie, Sprezyna  Sucess!

Lobby Instruktorskie (VII)
Interesting and safe route. Just few passages with own protection. Two last pitches are delightful. Crux without problems. Run to the summit without shoes.
Sprezyna (VI-)
Hmm... Classic route, however I don't like it. First pitch in easy ground, some old pitons. Second firstly by nice and exposed slab. Next the traverse between two roofs (crux) - more uncomfortable than hard place. Last pitch - 20m in chim. 3rd team member didn't want even to try the crux, so I've done it twice to take our eq out.
Splendid summer day in Tatras.

April 2013
Byczkowski' route attempt, total wet face, it was more swimming the crawl than climbing:) Rappel two pitches before the top after traverse to the Lobby.

Gnojek and Zalupa H route  Sucess!

Gnojek route (SW face) is short, but interesting route. We climbed in mid-fall weather, quite foggy. After having summited Koscielec, we went down and got back on the trail, to follow another route, on Zadni Koscielec west face: Zalupa H (beautiful and quite exicitig, due to some icy passages - total fog, no views at all).
Climbed with Igi.


mooliczek - Jun 9, 2010 5:00 am Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2010

South ridge - Koscielce Ridge  Sucess!

Very nice route, done in a great company and good weather. Solid rock, some quite exposed passages, varied and interesting. Technically, not very demanding, but definitely worth recommendation.
Climbed with Igi and Jck.

Several times  Sucess!

Setka (IV) , October 1, 2023 - for a second time
First pitch quite wet, rest ot the route in good condtitions. Nice day out.

South ridge - Grań Kościelców (II-III) for a second time, August 27, 2023
Sunny and hot day. Few other parties en route but no so crowded.

Zalupa H (III) and Gnojek (III) routes combination for a second time. August 22, 2020.
Perfect weather, been lucky to be first party up the mountain.

Potoczek (III) - winter route, March 29, 2016
The condition en-route where pretty bad: not much snow,icy, water flowing on some pitches. Might be a nice route in good snow conditions.

Byczkowski (VI-), August 22, 2015
6 pitches up the West Face. The crux on the fifth pitch is not so difficult (when dry). Nice day in Tatras with Radek.

Stanislawski (V), August 15, 2015
Another classic on West Face of Koscielec, climbed with Radek. Exposed first pitch, risky traverse and the dark and wet chimney in the middle part. Lovely.

Setka (IV) , August 2, 2014
Fantastic, classic route. The most notable points: Traverse, Overhang, Black wall - not difficult, solid granite, just a piece of perfect climbing. Very recommended route.

Zalupa H (III) and Gnojek (III) routes combination, July 5, 2014
Classic, easy and not very long routes. Good for the beginning of the summer season in the Tatras. Well protected.

South ridge - Grań Kościelców (II-III), June 5, 2010
Very interesting, not very difficult (UIAA III) route. Took the way from the West to Mylna Pass then by the ridge through Zadni Koscielec and Koscielcowa Pass to the main summit. Mostly dry rock, some nasty snow passages, nice weather. Good day out.
Climbed with Ania (Mooliczek) and Igor (Igi).

Been also two times on the top by the marked route (11 Aug 1997 and 29 Oct 2005).
