    Join me on one of the most challenging programs in the Tatras Mountains, and the Carpathian Mountains as well. In this program, I will guide you on the ascent of the majestic Mt Gerlach one of the natural highlights of Slovakia.

    Mt Gerlach – officially called Mt Gerlachov – has an altitude of 2,663 meters. Its ascent is one of the most popular traverses in this area.

    For this program, I will take 2 guests per group, both in summer and winter. In summer weather conditions, with no snow or ice, I can exceptionally take 3 guests.

    Guests need to have a good fitness level. Scrambling skills among exposed sections are required. I also recommend going on other excursions before this trip for a better acclimatization.

    About the Guide


    IFMGA / UIAGM Mountain guide

    Since early 1980 I'm continuously climbing in the Tatras, Alps, Caucasus, Andes, Rocky Mountains, Yosemite, Scotland, Himalayas and other mountains.

    Most of my climbs I’ve done are obviously in the Tatras. Besides several hundreds of the casual climbs, new routes & some first winter ascents there, I’ve also climbed in other countries on 4 continents. To some of my best climbs belong probably: 2-day ascent of the South Face if Aconcagua (6959 m), the winter ascent of the Grand PIlier d'Angle on Mont Blanc and partly new route / new variation on Cho – Oyu (8201m , alone the last part to the summit).

    I do follow the polish tradition of the mountain extreme skiing, doing several new extreme ski descents in the Tatras.

    I participate 4 times in the famous ski-mountaineering-competitions Pierra Menta in the Alps. I took also part in the ski-and climbing- championships of the IFMGA (three times being on the 3-rd position in ski & climbing combination.).

    I’ve been successfully working on the membership of the Polish Mountain Guides Association / PSPW / in the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations / IFMGA /. For over 10 years I’ve been the president of the Polish Mountain Guides Association.

    Since 1991 I've been working as professional mountain guide, working mostly in the Tatras & the Alps.

    During the winter, I do also work for the Tatra Mountain Rescue Service (TOPR).

    Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Tatra mountains, hiking, mountaineering, climbing or skiing. I will guide you here with much pleasure and show you some of our secret spots !
