The High Tatras mountain range in Slovakia offers many great possibilities for winter mountaineering. Join me for 1 or several days and I will take you to fantastic frozen waterfalls in this area, for a mix of winter and ice climbing.
With so many options in the High Tatras, we can move from one valley to the other, and if you choose to come for several days, we can stay in huts. We might snowshoe to reach the mountains and we will use crampons and ice axe, based in the programme we define together.
I can take you to climb peaks like Gerlach, the highest in the country, or Pysny (Pyšný štít), Kežmarský or also Kriváň peak, the symbol of Slovakia.
Winter mountaineering in the Hight Tatras is great because there is a only a short approach to reach the valleys. This means we can climb a peak in only one day and if we do a multiple day trip, we can climb one peak per day.
We also have the option of doing some traverses to avoid taking the same route up and down. One of the things I like the most about climbing in the Tatras is that it is very wild so we find very few people climbing here!
Be aware that in the Hight Tatras climbers are not authorised to go higher than the huts during winter, unless they are registered climbers or if they go together with a guide. This is why there are even fewer people in the mountains during this season.
In order to join this tour you need to be fit, and the level of required experience depends on the programme, but it is better if you have previous experience with crampons and ice axe use. I could also give you some training, but if we go for a peak we might need more days for this.
