Ascent Trip ReportA simple short ascent on trails from a ski centre.
After our Krivan ascent we drive round to the trailhead for this peak, a ski centre approached from the east. Shortly before reaching the approach road we stop off at a campsite (at Kolonia Hviezda) with a pizzeria next door, as the weather overnight is looking too wet for car camping. We book ourselves into a basic €7 cabin then drive up to the ski centre. It's possible the road may be closed overnight although we didn't work out the timings and it was still open just before 7pm
From the car park (N49.09320° E18.83475°) a track leads up to a ski piste, we take a path beside a chair lift to reach a surfaced road which we follow L, uphill. Where it bends T towards a tall comms tower, we go straight on towards a lower tower, with the summit a few metres beyond, a sharp rock (N49.09079° E18.81380° 1475m) beside a signpost. Close by is a 2" trig bolt protected by a section of concrete manhole ring.
We head back down, arriving just before the forecast rain arrives. Just less than 1hr round trip. Heavy rain overnight.
