Weather was super windy, heavy snow showers
The weather was windy and foggy.
Good snow conditions on the ridge but unfortunatelly quite pure views and very strong wind.We continued our climb to the top with great hope of getting better (wind and fog).It was only stop before descending to Lucne sedlo and then Koncista.There was no sence to continue with no visibility..Anyway we noticed very interesting climbing routes on Tupa from Popradske Pleso and Zlomiskova valley.Descent to Popradske Pleso with Slovak guy who guided us down to the forest by wild path directly to the parking place;)Funny day.Climbed with Natalia.
second climb via NW pillar,the route called Banan II UIAA with one place IV UIAA (not so demanding).We climbed the route without the top.Just pure laziness...
Touched down by the ridge from Sedlo pod Ostrvou, along our way to Lucni Sedlo.
Quite cloudy that day, but most of all - nasty, cold and strong wind.
Climbed with Igi and Jck.
- Supercoloir (IV-, 70 deg)- winter - fantastic, alpine route, climbed fast in perfect conditions. With Radek.
- Galffy pillar (III) - winter - easy but nice route. The lower part is pretty interesting, the upper rather dull...With Radek.
- Banan (II - IV) - winter - another easy route on the right side of the north face. One little bit more difficult place, rest done simulclimbing. With Radek.
- Normal route from Sedlo pod Ostrvou - summer - the easiest way, just a walk.
Nice and easy accessible peak with absolutely fantastic summit panorama especially towards north - the whole system of post-glacial "hanging" valleys above Zlomiska with so many imposing High Tatra peaks, everything just next to you! On your back another wonderful view towards green plain of Slovak Liptov land...
Descent by the ridge through Klin to the Magistrala trail and furhter to the east...
During hiking Konczysta
Second - 30 December 2009
by North-West Face - "banana" route. Incredibly landscapes. We hoped for easy midday trip, but blizzard caught us in half of the wall. Fortunately we've done the route to the end.
Third 09 March 2013 - Galfy's Pillar direct III/IV
Very enjoyable winter climb, nice rock passages on the second and fifth pitches, good grasses.
It was a sunny day and a beautiful, easy climb without any problems. We reached the summit from Sedlo pod Ostrvou (1966m) in half an hour. I was with Máté Mérõ/yanks.
