Jahňací štít (2229 m) is the easternmost peak of the High Tatras. There are four ridges going from the peak: southwestern – towards Kolové sedlo, where the marked hiking trail leads, northwestern – separates Jahňací kotol from Kolová dolina, northeastern – belongs to Kopské sedlo and southeastern – separates Červená dolina from Dolina Bielych plies. There is a nice view from the top. The first known ascent was made by the English traveler Robert Townson, but undoubtedly there were shepherds, poachers and haviars before him, who mined copper on its north-western ridges in the 18th century. The first winter climbers ascended Jahňací štít in 1911.
It‘s possible to reach it in various ways. The shortest way leads from the Biela voda bus stop – to the chalet Chata pri Zelenom plese along the yellow trail in about 2.30 hours.
