|Date:||Tuesday, August 14, 2012|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||Czech Republic/Poland|
| Elevation:||1424 m / 4672 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportStarted from a small village on the Czech side called Stribrnice, without a map. From there I followed a path that relentlessly winds its way up to the summit that lies on the Polish/Czech border.
Snieznik may have been without snow, but it certainly knows how to produce bilberries (Cz: Boruvka; Pl: Borowka). There are hectares of them and there were several enterprising people picking the berries by the bucket load.
