Ascent to Gerlach

The most popular and most visited peak is the highest peak of the High Tatras Gerlach with an altitude of 2655 m.

You can choose from several ascent options according to technical difficulty.

In the summer, the classic ascent leads through Velická próba and Velický žľab to Sedielko nad Kotlom at an altitude of 2425 meters above sea level, then through a traverse over the Gerlachovský kotol to Štrbina pod Kotlovým at an altitude of 2550 meters above sea level and through parts like Okno and Počúvaj couloir to the top. The descent leads through Batizovský žľab and Batizovská próba to Batizovská dolina and around Batizovské pleso back to Sliezsky dom.

Total Ascent: 1035 meters

Duration: 8-10 hours

In good conditions (dry rock), a mountain guide can lead on a rope a maximum of 3 people.

In the transitional period, the beginning of summer/winter, when the standard route through Velická próba is technically demanding, there is a common ascent as well as descent through Batizovská próba.

Tatarkova próba ascent is a more technically demanding ascent. From the hiking trail through Velická dolina you’ll turn at the tarn Dlhé pleso. Tatarkova próba follows – an ascent secured by chains and artificial tools which continues to the right side of Tetmajer’s couloir, it ascends towards Gerlachovské sedlo and to Zadný Gerlach.

From Zadný Gerlach you walk along the exposed ridge over Gerlachovské sedlo to the top of Gerlach. Descent usually through Batizovská próba.
