This Prostredny hrot guided ascent in the High Tatras is a challenging adventure for experienced mountaineers who want a demanding expedition in Slovakia. 

Prostredny hrot (2441 m) means Needle Tip and it’s the highest peak in the central ridge of the High Tatras. It divides the Mala and the Velka Studena Valleys, and at first it appears inaccessible. But with the right guiding it is a very interesting climb.
We will start our trip from Hrebienok (1285 m), an ancient town very popular among tourists. The expedition will last around 9 or 10 hours with a total altitude gain of 1200 meters.

It’s a demanding climb, with terrain exposure. So you’ll need to be in good physical condition and have some previous mountaineering experience. Because of the high technical level, I will only take 2 clients per climb.

But all the hard work will be rewarded with the beautiful views of the big walls of the west face of Lomnicky Peak that you’ll see from the summit.

So if you’re ready to push your limits, send me a request to make this Prostredny hrot guided ascent in the High Tatras your next big adventure.

About the Guide


I was born in 1965 in Košice, Slovakia. Most of my life I lived in Spišská Nová Ves, with the High Tatras and Slovak Paradise National Parks nearby. As a teenager I started exploring and loving the mountains. Although my parents didn't share my passion, they approved it. Actually, at the age of 68 my mother decided to climb Gerlach (2655 m) with me as her guide!
I am an IFMGA certified guide. Besides, I am a member of the Adventure Consultants team in New Zealand.
Some of the places where I am used to climbing are the High Tatras, the Alps, the Dolomites, the Rockies, the South American Andes, Himalayas, Pamir and in New Zealand.
My Extremes: The highest peak I reached is Cho Oyu at 8201 m (Himalayas). The hardest rocky route I've taken is The Nose (El Capitan Yosemite), and the best ice route was The Weeping Wall (Rocky Mountains). The best ski touring traverse I've done is the Main ridge of Low Tatras, and my favourite extreme skiing experience was in the Lomnický štít peak through Cmiter.
I currently live in Štôla, under our beloved Tatra mountains, with my wife and children.
