    The Gerlachovský štít, also known as the Gerlach Peak, is the highest mountain in the High Tatras in Slovakia.

    This ascent program consists of two days of winter mountaineering and includes professional training mainly focused on your security and skills development.

    As for the itinerary, on the first day I will teach you to use all the necessary technical equipment as well as the avalanche transceiver. On day 2, the Gerlachovský Peak awaits to be climbed so we’ll conquer the Slovak sky together!

    This winter ascent is recommended for those mountaineers with technical knowledge in mixed steep terrain (rock and ice). It is also mandatory to have an excellent physical condition and some previous experience. In any case, this program offers high safety standards since it is absolutely led by a certified mountain guide.

    As the winter climate in the High Tatras is somewhat hostile, the itinerary may change according to the decisions that I and my team consider necessary. In fact, in case of danger of avalanches or unfavorable weather conditions, I have a Plan B towards another nearby peak.

    So, if you’re in search of a winter mountaineering challenge come and climb the Gerlach Peak with me! Send your request to book.

    Very poor service. Avoid! They delete messages with guides, change guides, real prices are different than in their webpage. Need to wait answer few days, so in the end you see that still don\'t have a guide, but holidays are right here.
