Climbing Routes

High Tatras, a legend among climbers. Tatra climbing is challenging not only due to long approaches but also the demanding terrain and unpredictability of the weather. Climbing tours are recommended only for experienced climbers with knowledge of the topography, or in the company of a mountain guide. Of course, it is necessary to use your own belay device, as most roads are secured only by cruxes or belay stations. However, there are also easier routes.

Rules for hiking off the trails (including climbing) can be found HERE!
