A really enjoyable route with amazing views.
Started with a sunny day, ends up with fog. We climbed from the East side. The rock was quite broken.
It was simply wonderful trip.
Hrebienok-Téryho chata-couloir to Laštovicia štrbina-Pyšný štít-Lomnický štít (via Jordánova cesta)-Lomnické sedlo-Tatranská Lomnica. Nice weather, the most exhausting place was a snow covered couloir to Laštovicia štrbina - 45 degrees of steepnes. Crampons and ice axes necessary.
Climbed with Jck and Igi, so not to repeat ourselves, just wanted to share some of our photos from the trip. For me, it was a really good fun!
Interesting, complicated and bit exposed route. The rock is not very good, rotten in some places. Bad visibility sometimes caoused problems with routefinding. The most interesting part is from Pysny stit to the connection with Jordanowa cesta. Further some chains and iron steps kills the fun from climbing.
Descended by the normal route to Lomnicke sedlo.
Climbed with Ania (Mooliczek) and Igor (Igi).
Beautiful views form the top.
Legendary route via Medene Lavky(Copper Desks) discovered by Fabry family from Kezmarok town in 18th century. Our ascent was made in absolutely wonderful september weather conditions, that hiking up the ledges hanging in the middle of tremendous Lomnica north face, those views, that exposition...just not to describe, breathtaking summit panorama. Shocking top class Lomnica summit ...restaurant :-)
The route stays quite demanding in good conditions of dry rock(scramble) and visibility : orientation... technically: 2 short couloirs at the entry(key place) to Medene Lavky's lower ledge and another one while crossing form the lower to the upper ledge(UIAA I) - the problems may appear especially in descent(very crumbling!)
In bad weather conditions of rain and fog it becomes surely
a serious and risky challenge, in winter it goes up to extreme(cliffy snow traverses)...
One of the greatest Tatra experiences !
Cool ridge between famous summits.
22.06.2013 - Hokejka, unsuccessful
Epic blizzard, escape from the crux in the waterfalls of cold water, I've got a hypothermia during rappels, we've lost a lot of equipment.
Opportunity to be twice a day on the top. First time in the morning after ascent by ordinary route from Lomnickie Sedlo with excellent view for 100 km.
The sky without any cloud.
Then descend by Jordanka route under the wall. Climbing the Puskas route and second visit on the top that day at the afternoon
solo climbing,no equipment appart from Ninjas on my feet...up by naked rock,down by chains...good weather,early morning,rising sun,music in my ears,adrenaline in my veins...great time...and nobody from horska sluzba stopped me:)
We eventually got up the mountain , but since the beginning of the easiest ( I ) route was hidden by stones we ended going way off the route , and climbing wet III terrain. The view from the summit was about 5m so the whole trip was probably just for some adrenaline and so we could see the highest phone machine in the Slovak Republic :)
