Day One: Getting to 'Chata pod Rysami'

Vysoka, Cesky StitVysoka and Cezky Stit seen from Popradzka Copa

We started from Popradzke Pleso ~3:15PM to get to Chata pod Rysami Refuge about 5PM. After having delicious dinner in the refuge, we decided to fool around and take a look on our next day's target. Half an hour later, everything was covered in clouds. Morning was going to be one of the most beautiful you have ever seen, you could almost feel it in the air.

Day Two: Ascending Vysoka

Chata pod Rysami - SunriseLovely sunrise, just like predicted..
Sunrise at Waha PassMore and more sun over our heads. Wonderful!

Last look behind...On the way to the summit. One last look behind to the Zabia Valley

On the way to the summit.Easy climbing section. You can see old, rusted chain laying on the rocks. It's remained from the closed trail. Nowadays great guide through the rocks for young alpinists.
Between rocksEhh, just unnesessary climbing... Well, it should have been next couloir =P. All in all view from the ridge was worth it.

On the summit of VysokaFinally we did it! That's how I felt.

Between cloudsGeorgous view from the top.

Forget about views, more and more clouds everywhere. I've seen better weather befor. Let's get out from here. That exactly how I feel... Had to mention the night was a little bit snowy =P.
