Ascent Trip Report

Dropped off in the car park in Sucha Dolina, I hiked the road up to the village of Obidza (with a refuge). I continued on a stony track up onto the ridge. I followed the trail north-west through pasture, with good views of the Pieniny and Tatra to the south-west. Forest followed for the ascent of Wielki Rogacz 1182m/76m. This involved a short diversion off-trail on a little path onto the tree-girt summit. Returning to the trail, I headed north down to a col, and then steeply up onto the broad summit of Radziejowa, again covered in trees. I scaled the precarious tower on the summit, which raised me above the trees, affording me an excellent panorama.

I took my outward route down, stopping at the hut in Obidza for a drink. I reached the car park 15 mins before my wife arrived to pick me up.
