Hiking to Ridge Kościelców – well known ridge among the Tatra mountaineers community.

Tatras and surroundings: Year-round offer

About this place

Grań Kościelców is a great offer for people who want to start their adventure with climbing in the Tatra Mountains. It is often compared with reaching the famous Monk. The level of difficulty is similar (also II on the UIAA scale), although the area is more diverse, and the ridge much less crowded than the legendary Monk.

The trip will start with a cable car ride to Kasprowy Wierch or hike from Kuźnice through Hala Gąsienicowa to Mylna Przełęcz, where we will put on climbing equipment and start climbing for 2 hours to the top of Kościelec (2155 m a.s.l.). The tour is led by a 2nd class licensed Tatra guide, an experienced climber and mountaineer using the latest Black Diamond equipment.
