Ascent to Končistá

Končistá with an altitude of 2538 meters above sea level lies in the southern neighboring side ridge of Popradský Ľadový štít in the High Tatras. In the east, the ridge descends to Batizovská dolina, in the west to Štôlska dolina. The highest of the three peaks of Končistá is called Jármayho stôl („Jármay’s table“). Until recently, it was a bizarre boulder, which can also be seen from the Batizovská dolina. It resembled a horse’s head or a blacksmith’s anvil. In September 2019, however, the anvils were damaged by lightning.

Končistá is very easily accessible. In the tourist guides, the authors mention it as the most easily accessible peak among the main peaks of the High Tatras. It was probably well-known long ago by treasure hunters, poachers, gold diggers. Before the First World War, mountain leaders spoke of it with respect, and it is said that it is “climbable even on a dying horse”.

Nowadays, the ascent to Končistá begins from the Sliezsky dom or Popradské pleso. From Sliezsky dom we head to Batizovská dolina, around Batizovské pleso and on the southern slope of Končistá we ascend to the top. The descent leads to Lúčne sedlo and back to the Sliezsky dom.

Alternatively, we will start at the Chata pri Popradskom plese, get off at Ostrva and continue in the direction of Batizovské pleso. We can arrange the ascent and descent routes directly with the mountain guide.

Total Ascent: 1000 m

Difficulty: II – easy-medium

Duration: approximately 8 hours
