TATRY 2015

Winter climbing in the Polish Tatra Mountains with Ania Wojtiuk, Jacek Czajka and Krzysztof Treter. During 9 days we managed to climb some classic routes around Hala Gasienicowa: Klis, Srodkowe Zebro Granatow, Zebro Czecha followed by traverse of Granaty, Zebro Rzepeckich and Polnocny Filar Swinicy. Excellent weather, great company and beautiful mountains – what else could I ask for?

Not particularly successful trip – due to poor weather we spent most of the time either waiting in Torino hut or drinking beer in Chamonix. We only had a 1-day “weather window” during which we attempted to climb the Chere couloir (D, II, 4) on Triangle du Tacul. Unfortunately, navigation error meant that we started climbing a wrong route – Perroux gully (TD-, III, 4+, M5). Not knowing the route, we decided to abseil after four pitches. Later on, we received the Chelmsford Mountaineering Club’s 2014 Epic Award for this “adventure”.

On the bright side – we managed to do 2 pleasant rock routes:

  • SE Ridge on Aiguille de L’Index (AD);
  • Voie Caline (AD-).
