Ascent Trip ReportWe drove up Domanovska dolina to Zahradky and took the two-stage chair-lift up to above Lukova, hiking from there up to the crowded chata. A short rugged ascent to the summit followed. As the descent off the summit was slippery and treacherous, we descended again to the chata, to pick up the red trail east along the ridge to the col below Dumbier. See under Dumbier for the next stage of the hike.
