Objective: The Tatra Mountains are situated on the border between Poland and Slovakia. During winter, they offer excellent alpine like climbing – snow, ice and mixed routes followed by sharp ridges that take you to spiky summits. Descents are and often tricky. There is no problem with acclimatisation as the altitude is 2000 – 2600m. Majority of the routes can be done in one day. There are lots of climbing routes at various difficulty and length. We would like to take a group of 12 members of the Alpine Club (full or aspirants).
Dates: 2 - 10 February 2019
Location: Hala Gasienicowa is one of two climbing areas in the Polish Tatras. It is a pretty valley with a lake in the middle. It is surrounded by several peaks that offer excellent winter climbing.
Logistics: the nearest airport is in Krakow and there are lots of cheap flights from all major airports in the UK. Krakow which is a beautiful city with historical centre is an ideal meeting point.
