Ganek is a peak in the main ridge of the High Tatras with three peaks, which rises above three valleys – Rumanová (connected to Zlomisková dolina), Ťažká and Kačacia. The last two are connected to the peak with extremely steep and impressive walls. Ganek has an altitude of 2462 meters above sea level and is most accessible from Zlomisková dolina. The technically demanding ascent with exposed passages begins at the hotel Chata pri Popradskom plese. We continue through Zlomisková dolina to Rumanová dolinka, from there to Gankova štrbina and south-east ridge to the top. Ganek is also well known for Galéria Ganku (“Ganek Gallery”) – a vertical wall about 300 meters high with a number of climbing routes of varying difficulty. For demanding and capable tourists it is possible to climb Ganek, Rumanov štít and Zlobivá.
Total Ascent: 1100 m
