Ascent Trip Report

Day started with some sunshine that soon turned to a light drizzle and very windy. The rain stopped about half-way up, but the wind got stronger. We traversed the mountain by ascending the valley route and descending the ridge route - having a hotel room in Pec pod Snežkou as a launch point. The trail is very well marked and maintained in either direction. Lots of folks enjoying a snack in the summit restaurant.
