Rysy - Polish side  Sucess!

One-day climb to Rysy from Palenica Białczańska and back. Completely clouded above 2000, though at some lucky moments, wind blew most clouds away for a few minutes.

Great mountain!!!  Sucess!

I climbed from Polish side across Morskie Oko and the long ridge of chains. We begun with clouds and fog but we enjoyed of a sunny day in the summit only for a little time. In the descent we had a lof of rain and we returned to parking with umbrella walking 9km of road.

classical climb from slovakian side  Sucess!

Nice hike to Poland's highest top done from the slovakian side in two days with a stoip at the refuge. I also visited the slovakian slightly highesr top (2503m). Good conditions though a bit cloudy.

From Slovakia  Sucess!

The day started out fine, but as I got to Chata pod Rysmi, the mountain tops around me were in clouds. I'm an optimist and it wasn't a thick layer, so, hoping for improvement, I continued anyway and in the end I got rewarded. It wasn't cold or windy on the summit, so I relaxed, ate a bit, and waited for the clouds to lift to get some views, and eventually I did.

Route Climbed : Marked Route from Morskie Oko Lake and after reaching the summit towards Popradske Pleso Lake  Sucess!

Cold morning and cold day. Frost had appeared on the summit despite the fact it's July and I needed to find my hat in the rucksack ! Heavily limited views on the summit which broadened while going down towards Váha Pass. Next hours of the day was full of sun. Anyway it was adventure day.

On the border  Sucess!

Passed on top of Mount Rysy on my way from Poland to Slovakia. Loved the metal chains on the way up. Adorable mountain culture in the Tatras: good refuges, plenty of mountain sheep dogs and donkeys.

Alone  Sucess!

Late season climb from Krakow. Left Krakow at 6 in the morning, back at 7 in the evening. 6 hours round trip. Due to late season and little amount of snow easy to run, no crampons needed but above Morskie Oko only 4 people seen the whole trip. Clear skies all the way!

Beautiful but busy  Sucess!

Excellent hike/scramble. We did it in 1 long day, the walk into the massif is long, but easy and well paved. From the lakes it is a lot of 'stairs' till you reach the final scramble. Prepare to be exhausted if you do all of it in 1 day!

My first national highpoint!  Sucess!

Couldn't imagine a better first national highpoint. Excellent hike/scramble from Morskie Oko, just epic Polish scenery and a 'pointy' summit that makes you feel like you're 'up there'. Beautiful Tatry.

From the Slovakian side  Sucess!

Started in Štrbské Pleso, summited four hours later and enjoyed a cold beer at Chata pod Rysmi afterwards. Our first taste of High Tatras magic.

I climbed with Sene on the normal route from South. On the top we waited for the sunset and went down to the renewed Rysy Hut.
