    I’m offering this 2-day mountaineering program for the climbers who wish to ascent Mount Gerlach (Gerlachovský štít) during the winter and enjoy a great adventure in the High Tatras when most of the people go skiing. 

    This winter ascent I am proposing is accessible for mountaineers with a good physical shape as well as some experience in walking on complex terrains. I organize this ascent in 2 days.

    DAY 1 – Assessment and mountaineering exercices

    The objectives of the first day will be for me to assess your climbing level and give you some coaching on the mountaineering and safety technics. This will allow us to maximize our chance to reach the summit on day 2. This first day will also allow you to improve your climbing technics : walking with crampons, using ice axe, behaving when there is an avalanche, etc.

    DAY 2 – Climbing Mount Gerlach (2654 m)

    We will start climbing early in the morning. We will take the main road that takes us up to 1884 meters, to the ball Batizovský. Once in high altitude we’ll put all our mountaineering gear on in order to start the ascent. The final section before Mt Gerlach’s summit is a bit hard, but the effort is worth it. The descent will be done through the same track down to the mountain hotel Sliezsky Dom.

    On day 2, we will be walking from 8 to 12 hours. The total elevation gain will be of 1100 meters.

    Feel free to get in touch with me if you wish to ascent Mt Gerlach during the winter. I of course guide there also during the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to bring you up there and share with you my local knowledge as a certified IFMGA mountain guide.

    About the Guide


    I was born in Poprad and I live, work and relax in the High Tatras. I have been climbing in this region for 15 years both in summer and winter.
    Since 2001 I am a professional rescuer with a completed Bachelor education in Urgent Medical Care. Furthermore, I work in The Experts Mountain Rescue Service (in High Tatras) as an avalanche specialist.
    In 2009, after passing the entrance examination for mountain guiding, I started the roundabout course. In April 2010, I became a mountain guide aspirant in the National Association of Mountain Guides of the Slovak Republic.
    In 2011, during the final course in Chamonix - Mont Blanc (France) I successfully completed the course of mountain guide during four days of tests, under the strict supervision of Technical Commission NAHVSR instructors. Since then, I am a mountain guide with the IFMGA / UIAGM international license.
    Thanks to this job (and hobby) I am pleased to expand the horizons of my clients and share with them my knowledge and experience as a mountain guide.
