Rysy, 2503 m  Sucess!

Slow hike in nice weather. Carried two cups of tea worth of goods to the hut. :)

Attempt from Štrbské Pleso

Attempted Rysy in a snowstorm. After getting to the hut we could not find to the trail or see the peak--or anything for that matter. We descended. Saw some Russians coming down the icy descent in jeans and tennis shoes and taping ripped ponchos onto themselves. A nice day with a dissapointing result.

Nice hike from Morski Oko  Sucess!

Started early from the chalet. Very nice mountain hut but crowded during the day. In three hours to the summit. It was good to be there early before the crowds arrived. Great hike, first past the two lakes then up the rocks. Amazing views. We were in Krakau by evening.

My first, best climb  Sucess!

Hiked with my buddy Kevin and his wife back when we all lived as teachers in Poland. I was just getting into mountain hiking and wanted to start with something manageable but this was a doozy. I almost bit off more than I could chew. From Zakopane it is definitely a full day up and back. Don't bother with the horse ride up to Morskie Oko, it is slow and very uncomfortable. The top was crowded and I was bushed, but we made it down before nightfall. Overall an awesome experience, still waiting to tackle my next national high point.

Via Morskie Oko  Sucess!

Stayed overnight at Schronisko Morskie Okum and was on the hill for 0730, peaking around midday after several stops to take in the splendid views all around. Descent was a bit of a slog and heavy rain added to the fun but 3 hours later we were sharing a bottle of Malt in the comfort of the hut.

Twice  Sucess!

West face (Zapadna Stena) - 2009/12/28
Right side of the west face. Very interesting route, however climbed in not very pleasant snow and weather conditions.
Climbed with Igi, Jck, Brade and Mateusz.
Pictures, route description and trip report (in polish) - here

Rysa couloir (winter route) - 2008/06/14
Starting from Morskie Oko Hut, taking the regular summer route from Czarny Staw lake. Just above Bula pod Rysami turning a bit right to enter directly a winter route alongside Rysa couloir. Late spring weather, but very good snow conditions in the couloir. Interesting alternative, but quite risky: quite a lot of people, not very good prepared (regarding winter equipment).

Five times  Sucess!

From Morskiego Oko - 10 September 2011
Long day, fresh snow...With Teresa.

Zapadna stena (W face)- winter ascent, 28 December 2009
Great ascent via the face which is not very popular. Took the right side of the face, then traversed to the middle and straight to the main summit. Steep ice, nasty snow, problematic protection. Nobody on the mountain, bad visibility. Descended through Chata pod Rysmi. Climbed with: Radek (brade), Ania (Mooliczek), Igor (Igi) and Mateusz.

From Strbskie Pleso and back- 11 July 2008
Nice trek with Lukasz and Marcin- perfect weather, beautiful views, billions of people...

From Strbskie Pleso to Morskie Oko- 13 August 1999
Quite good weather, but no visibility from the summit. Quick ascent from Slovak side (easier but more interesting than the Polish one). Descended to Morskie Oko(PL).

From Morskie Oko and back- 7 August 1997
Bad weather. I was 13 years old. We statred from Lysa Polana at 5 o'clock and we came back about 3 p.m. A little snow on the trail but not causing any problems.

Classic approach from Popradske Pleso  Sucess!

Very overcrowded rock, shall be avoided in July-August. Very nice view from the top however.

Via Morskie oko  Sucess!

Before it gott to crowded, 15 year ago, there were 3 other people on the top. Went down on the Slovakian side to the Rysy hut(?) and down to the valley.

In July 2006 I was at Morskie Oko and it's overcrowded, a lot of young people trying to run up and down on paths with a lot of turists that are not familiar with mountans.

Via Morskie Oko  Sucess!

A very nice hike to Poland's highest peak. Views of the lake on the way are wonderful.

Long route quickly  Sucess!

I parked my car on the roadside of the road linking Strbské Pleso with Stary Smokovec, where the road crosses the Poprad river. Altitude 1205 meter. I started walking at 5:40 a.m. Up on the peak at 8:15 a.m. Started descending after 15 minutes on the peak. Back to the car at 10:40 a.m. A total 20 km of walking. Good weather with only a few clouds. And only a few people on the way up because of the early morning start.

Great n' Foggy  Sucess!

The hike was great, solid scramble, and a long approach trail.
There were almost no views, the fog was very thick. There was alot of crowds at the summit. It is one of the best peaks, a moderate class, but the great thing, pure solid rock!

From Slovakia  Sucess!

I climbed Rysy in the end of 2003 summer, from Slovakia. The weather was nice, although at the summit it was snowing a little bit.

accident on Vysoka  Sucess!

Climbed Rysy in awesome weather. I had to assist a Polish climber that fell from Vysoka and suffered an broken leg. The rescue team had to carry him height 500 m down to a place where the helicopter could land. Poor guy.
