Paired with Koscielec
After climbing Giewont and Rysy in previous days we climbed Swinica in third place. It was a great choice because it's another great mountain. Even after Rysy the peak Swinica is great.
We found a little of snow in the last section with chains and it was a little dangerous but the landscape was very alpine.
Climbed from Hala Gąsienicowa via Kasprowy Wierch. Cloudy and windy day, not too many people on the summit.

Great day. Great Hike. Great Company - together with Dennis from Canada.
very sunny day, many people on the trail, very interesting rockies around.
Through Swinicka pass through Zawrat and through the valley of 5 polish lakes.
Climbed from Zakopane via Hala Gasienicowa-Swinica-Kasprowy Wierch and back to Zakopane by cable car.
After haevy rain in the morning, very slear air, wonderful views
Walked up from Zakopane to Kuznice then path past Murowaniec Hut to the summit of Swinica. Descended via the col at Zawrat walking back to Zakopane. Very long, thoroughly enjoyable day although very busy.
I've got a photo from the summit in my gallery. easiest route, very nice scrambling and beautiful views. It started raining on the way back and I remember being completely wet :)
Weekend trip (total cost 80 pln xD) with schoolmate Pawel Wilkolek, went away straight from school. Fraiday at 20 we were at Zakopane. Lot of adventures... but it's definetly to long story. Approach from Betlejemka. Heavy backpacks with bivac and climb eq. Big thanks for Adrian from KWKatowice which gave us confortable accomodation in the climbing teacher's room - outside was very cold. Rain since Friday morning to Saturday night, we couldn't climb any intresting rock route this day becouse of wet rock. Lot of snow. Pretty vievs from summit ridge on clouds in the valley. Backpacks left on Zawrat Pass. Descent to small TPN shalter in Dolina Pieciu Stawow, met with nice people.
From Kuznice, up past Kasprowy Wierch, and then descending over "little Koscielec" and down to Murowaniec Hut.
Finally succeeded in winter conditions (however, already in spring time) by the ridge directly from Swinicka Pass, through lower western summit. Down with a small loop, following the red marks, to Swinicka Pass.
Climbed with Igi.
2008/08/22 - with success, from Zawrat Pass down, to Swinicka Pass. Crowded, of course...
2008/05/02 - almost... Attempt directly by the ridge from Swinicka Pass, touched the lower summit, but have been stopped about 10 meters from the main summit. There has been too few of snow to go across 'the horse' nearby the summit itself. No rope.
Trip with Igi and Patrycja.
2008/03/15 - only the lower summit.
Trip with Rafal and Seweryn.
Walked from Kasprowy on a great summer's day. Just a few patches of snow. Then carried on through Zawrat.
It was the 2nd time (1st was in okt.1997).
The weather was bad (wet and foggy).
Climbed in Summer 1999.
Been there several times in summer. I agree with Tomek, a bit overcrowded
can't remember any details though, definitely in summer
