Ascent along the regular route from Skalnaté pleso to Kežmarský štít (2556 meters above sea level) is one of the moderately demanding ascents. The Vidlový hrebeň (ridge) separates it from Lomnický štít. In Kežmarský štít, the fork of Lomnický štít is divided into a south-eastern arm, the dominant feature of which is Huncovský štít. The northern arm is dominated by Malý Kežmarský štít. Its northern wall is the most sought-after and very demanding climbing terrain.
From Tatranská Lomnica to Skalnaté Pleso we can take a cable car. From there, we continue to Skalnatá dolina and through Huncovský žľab we ascend to Huncovské sedlo and from there along a rocky ridge to the top of Kežmarské štít, we return the same way.
However, there are more combinations to get to and from the top. We can walk along the marked trail to Veľká Svišťovka. From there we turn left and get to Kežmarská kopa – ascent to Malý Kežmarský štít. From Malý Kežmarský štít we descend to Vyšná Kežmarská štrbina, which separates both peaks and from there to the top of Kežmarský štít. We can descend through the Huncovský štít, or go the other way around.
There are several ascent and descent routes, the exact route plan can be agreed directly with the mountain guide.
Total Ascent: 800 m
Difficulty: II – medium
