Ascent Trip Report

After being dropped by my wife on the Zakopane-Krakow road near Kojsowka, I took the black trail up through the forest, and occasional pasture, to reach the frontier markers on the Polish-Slovak border. From there I followed the trail upwards to the summit in a forest glade, with trig point, summit marker pole and a picture of Christ on a nearby tree. There was no view, as trees encircled the highest point. I returned by my outward route back, continuing my hike onward to Ostrysz 1023m.
