At 2,068 meters above sea level, Mnich is a mountain in Poland that belongs to the Tatra Mountains. It’s an iconic peak in the range and stands out for its distinctive shape. Although it’s not among the highest mountains, it’s has very challenging terrain. Every experienced hiker can challenge this peak with my help, and previos climbing experience is not required. Come with me to this 1-day program and we’ll get to the summit together!

If you would like to taste climbing in mountains for the first time, I will guide you the easiest and most popular way: Droga przez Płytę. We’ll start at the Morskie Oko Lake and go through a valley to the bottom of the north face. At this point, after 2 hours of climbing, we’ll stop for a break.

From there, we’ll begin the main part of the ascent, where we’ll face a steep slab and then turn to the east side of the mountain. Once at the top, we’ll get to see breathtaking views of the Morskie Oko Lake 600 meters below.

But there is more. After going up, of course we will have to go back down, which is much easier than ascending. In this section of the trip, we’ll use the abseiling technique. Of course, I’ll be there to help you and assist you with everything that you might need. Also, I’ll give you instructions and advice about rope management and safety during the whole climb.

In addition, there’s also the possibility to take more advanced routes, such as the Robakiewicz route (grade III) or the classic route (grade IV). If you’re an experienced climber but have never been to the Tatra Mountains, these would be great options for you. 

This program in the Tatras with an experienced guide will be an excellent preparation to go on your own in the future. Will you miss it? Send the request to book your place now and let’s reach the summit of the amazing Mnich peak together!

About the Guide

 
 

I was born in Zakopane and spent my childhood living very close to the Tatra National Park borders. Naturally, Tatra valleys close to Zakopane became my playground, where I spent lots of time with friends. Afterwards I started hiking in this beautiful mountains with my parents and friends.

Once, I found myself on the hardest, signed path in the Tatras - known as Orla Perć (Eagle Path)- and I spot some climbers on Zamarła Turnia (Death Crag). I knew straight away that was going to be my next step: to get to know our mountains even better.

My first climbs in the Tatras were in 1992, at a climbing course organised by a Mountaineering Club from Zakopane. Consequently, Since then, I have climbed many more routes, in summer and in winter. As a result of this, I gained more and more experience, spending all my free time after school in the mountains.

I was lucky to climb on other great mountain ranges around the world such as Yosemite in California, Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps, the Bernese Alps in Switzerland, the Dolomites in Italy, the Gorge du Verdon in France, the Stubaier Alps in Austria or Ben Nevis North Face in Scotland.

Apart from climbing in the mountains, my second nature and passion is skiing. Up to the age of 15, I used to take part in alpine skiing competitions. Shortly after that, I discovered ski touring, or so called ski alpinism, as a fantastic way to visit the mountains in winter.

The experience I gained climbing and skiing for many years, resulted in my life as a mountain professional. Below you can find my most important qualifications:

-Tatra Mountain Guide - A certified qualification obtained after passing an official long term guiding course as well as the final exams.This certificate allows me to guide people, in summer and in winter, in exposed mountain terrain, with the use of ropes and climbing techniques.
-Mountain Rescuer (Tatra Mountain Search and Rescue) TOPR - In winter, I work full time at the rescue service in the Tatras. I specialise in handling avalanche dogs. I own a certified avalanche search dog, named Has (border collie)
-Skiing Instructor (Polish Skiing Association) PZN - This is an internationally recognised, skiing instructor certificate, which allows me to teach skiing at all levels.

In my prívate life, I am a happy husband to Aleksandra and the father of two boys- Klimek and Staś. We all love life in the outdoors and try to spend there as much time together, as we can.
