Ascent Trip Report

The main summit is an easy bag via the cable car (operating til 6pm when we were there). For those with more time, Chleb is a p130 nearby or there's a good looking multi summit ridge walk to be had.

After our morning ascent of Babia Hora we drove back into Slovakia and took the cable car (€11 return) from the N side, Chata Vrátna (approx N49.20860° E19.04283° 750m). Then 250m ascent over 1km on good trails, very windy.

Clouds just high enough to allow views of the surroundings, green and very attractive. 3 trigs at summit (outcrop N49.18753° E19.03086°, 1706m) including a 2" bolt. Surprised to see a bride and groom in full regalia near summit, she was even wearing 3" heels!

Quick coffee at café before taking the cable car down and driving to our third peak of the day, Velka Luka
