Vidlový hrebeň - the most beautiful, the most exposed and one of the most difficult ridges in the High Tatras. It starts in Medená štrbina Pass (Miedziana Przełączka), where it joins the face of Lomnický štít (2634 m), and continues with Medený múr - Západná Vidlová veža (2480 m, Zachodni Szczyt Wideł, Nyugati Villacsúcs, Westliche Gabelspitze) - Vidlové sedlo (2413 m, Przełęcz w Widłach, Villahorhos, Gabelscharte) - Veľká Vidlová veža (2517 m, the highest point of this ridge, Widły, Nagy Villacsúcs, Grosse Gabelspitze) - Lieviková štrbina (Przełęcz w Widłach Wyżnia, Felső Villahorhos, Obere Gabelscharte) - Východná Vidlová veža (Wschodni Szczyt Wideł, Keleti Villacsúcs, Östliche Gabelspitze) - and ends in Kežmarská štrbina (2463 m, Kiezmarska Przełęcz, Késmárki Villahorhos, Kesmarker Gabelscharte).
The better option is to start at the top of Lomnický štít, because in this case, you will have a very nice climbing sections, which would be abseiled when climbed from the direction of Kežmarský štít.
Difficulty: II.-IV. Two abseils.
Duration: We shortened the whole route by taking a first cable car from Tatranská Lomnica to Lomnický štít (better to reservate it at least one day before your scheduled ascent). From Lomnický štít to Kežmarský štít (2558 m) - 4 hours; from Kežmarský štít via Huncovský to Skalnaté pleso 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
First ascent of the whole ridge: Aleksander Znamięcki with Jędrzej Marusarz (guide), 6.IX.1906; A. Szczepański, J. A. Szczepański, M. Szczuka, 29. VII. 1927 - first ascent from the direction of Kežmarská štrbina.
The whole ridge is a very nice climbing, with some very exposed sections, when you are following very narrow ledges holding only the edge of the ridge; or beautiful but narrow ridges.
