Twice in summer from Polish side  Sucess!

Once it was completely foggy, visibility about 5-10 m. And the second one it was sunny with clouds. Quiet a good hike.

from Lysa Polana to Strbske pleso  Sucess!

Nice ascend from polish side with the descend to slovak side. Gloomy clouds stilled up in the sky and it didn't rain. There is an album from the ascend: http://www.summitpost.org/album/307751/in-steps-of-v-i-lenin-rysy-from-polish-side.html

summer avalanches  Sucess!

Unexpectedly, about a meter of snow felt in the middle of august in Tatras before our ascend. Snow made the ascend very interesting. I picked the packed backpack prepared for voluntary hikers to get it up from chalet at Popradske pleso (1550 m) to chalet below Rysy (2250 m). It weighted 40 kgs. I had difficulties at chains section below the upper chalet, but managed to do it with the reward of free tea with rum. I didn't have own camera, but one polish friend made some photos for us: http://www.summitpost.org/image/13689//member-profile-photo.html, http://www.summitpost.org/image/137532/150343/me-on-the-summit-of-rysy-in.html.

Back again  Sucess!

Nice hike in nice weather from Slovakian side, and I also tried myself as a "sherpa", carrying up 27 liters of mineral water to the chalet from Popradske Pleso - the cup of tea I got in return was maybe the best I've ever had! :)

Rainy climb  Sucess!

Raining heavily till Chata pod Rysmi. I got totally wet. From the hut to the peak the sun came out of the clouds so we reached the top in nice weather and got dry.

Rysy from Slovak side  Sucess!

A great trip at the height of the summer season, with many people enjoying the mountain.

Winter route  Sucess!

Very quick ascent - Only 3,5 hours from the shelter house in Morskie Oko. After one beer. :-)

Nice memories..

I've been to this beautiful mountain a few times between age 7-10 (middle-late 1980s) with my family (and a throng of other hikers :) ), and again with my dad in 1994 (who was 73 years old then!) - so I have some very fond memories of this place.

From Strbske pleso  Sucess!

Cloudy and foggy in the valley. Sun and clear skies above 1900 m (5700 ft.). The High Tatra range is looking like islands in an ocean of clouds. Perfect!

My best views from Rysy so far  Sucess!

After climbing Koprowy Wierch/Kôprovský Štít in the morning, we had ample time left to scale this peak as well. As the weather was fabulous, there were a lot of people on the trail. On the way down we had a chat with the people running the hut below the summit. Soon they will construct a new building a bit higher up, out of the path of avalanches. We carried some stuff down to Popradske pleso for them as they were preparing to mostly close down the place for the winter season.

My favourite border-crossing :) Visited several times:

July 2006: Backpacking from chata pod Rysmi to Schronisko Piec Stawów (Polish Five Lakes' hut), and back. Had more luck with the view.
Aug 2007: Backpacking from chata pod Rysmi to Schronisko Piec Stawów (full view!), and back (soaking rain, rockslide). Also an evening visit from Chata pod Rysmi, sunset with clouds.
Aug 2010: Day-trip from Popradské pleso. Fabulous weather and massive crowds.
