Scrambling :-) With a bit of snow-fun and cold weather


In those countries the first and the second are often hardly compatible... Except if you have the same gear & skills.

I'm looking for something like hindelanger klettersteig in winter ... Have done that last year and want to do it again this year ... No iceclimbing, rock-climbing is ok, but can't make good enough ice-protection and I only have 1 piolet ...

The lack of vocabulary in your answer confirms that you are not ready to do that. Polish mountains can be really dangerous in winter. If I were you, I would stick on what people usually do, keeping on the open trails and do the usual winter hikes.

I'm looking for something "fun" and hard in eastern europe for this winter (first week of january) Maybe I'll just go back to the alps ...


If you're comfortable with the Alps in winter, why don't you go to the Tatras? Look at the link Visentin has pasted just above. This is kind of little Alps - smaller area, easier access, shorter routes, but can make for a similar level of difficulty.

Whatever... imho your approach is just the opposite order as things should be: you decide the fun you are going to have, and then you search for the mountains that could fulfill it.
First read about those mountains, on SP or elsewhere, and if they make you curious then you'll visit them - and you'll already know how.
