Ascent Trip Report

Walked from the car pack in Horni Misecky up the zig-zag road to the mountain café at Vrbatova, and along the ridge, stopping at the monument on Vrbatovo Navrsi, the rocky top of Harrachovy Kameny, along improvised paths to Kotel from the north east, passing a viewpoint cairn before continuing to ascend towards the centre of the gently sloping, dwarf pine covered summit, where there is a second cairn with a wooden pole at its centre. With time to spare before getting the hikers' bus down from Vrbatova, I tried to find the unmarked summit of the little top to the east, Zlate Navrsi amongst more dwarf pine. A fine walk, and much more enjoyable than the tourist route up Snezka.
