Ascent Trip Report

Departure from Krakow at 02.00 at night. We set off on the trail with Lukasz Lebioda at 04.30. The car was parked in front of the Grand Hotel in Stary Smokovec. The first part of the trip through Hrebieniok (asphalt road), next to Rainerova Chata in the dark with the headlamp on our foreheads. A moment of stopping at Zamkova Chata. It got bright and fantastic views appeared all around. More and more people on the trail towards Teryho Chata. Slowly higher and higher with unbelievable views we reached the shelter. After the short stay towards the Red Bench. The road is strewn with chains to the pass itself. From the pass without a trail go up the ridge - route 0+. A bit of getting in with hands and looking for a route. 30 minutes from the mountain pass. Going down harder. Then a long road through the Starolesna Valley and return to the car at 5.00 PM
