Reach the highest summits in every range and subrange in Poland in this huge undertaking. Includes all peaks from the Crown of Poland Peak Challenge (the highest peak in every mountain range in Poland) and then adds the highest peaks in all sub-ranges. Includes a few peaks with summits not accessible by marked trails. This is the natural next challenge to tackle after the Crown of Poland Peak Challenge. Created by the Wrocław branch of the Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society (PTTK). See more at http://www.ktg.wroclaw.pl/diadem.php. Thanks to peakery member JakubW for help with this challenge.

"Start w Krościenku nad Dunajcem skąd przejechaliśmy na parking w pobliżu stacji elektryczki "Popradzki Staw" na Słowacji. Odległość znośna - 85 km. Na miejscu byliśmy o godzinie 6:45. Z parkingu podejście asfaltem na Popradzki Staw gdzie w schronisku wypiłem sherpa tea, herbatę z "bylinkami". Po krótkiej przerwie start na szlak i o godzinie 11:00 meldowałem się na Rysach. Niestety po drodze pogoda się zepsuła i widoczność była ograniczona do minimum. Nie zmienia to faktu że najwyższy szczyt Polski został zdobyty. Po drodze (pod i powyżej Schroniska pod Wagą) było trochę śniegu ale bardzo łatwo" - Rysy - North Peak, JakubW, Jun 17, 2018
"Together with 4 of my friends did a 30km walk around Gorce. We started in Rzeki and we took blue trail south to Gorc peak. Next we turned west to Turbacz peak following green trail. Walking back to car we decided to take the yellow trail that leads through Kudłoń and Gorc Troszacki. The whole trip took us almost 10 hours." - Turbacz, szymonkodrebski, Apr 14, 2018
"Quick morning hike to the highest point of the Pieniny National Park. Quite a lot of snow but the trail was good. Beautifull views from the top. The forecasts for the next 2 days are bad though. Very strong foehn wind (up to 284 km/h in Tatras, 150 km/h in Pieniny) so it will probably melt most of the snow." - Trzy Korony, JakubW, Dec 10, 2017
"An outing during a stay in Wrocław. We parked in the large car park at Prz. Walimowska (10 złoty). Beginning on the black trail round the north flank of the mountain, we diverted onto a higher forest track that met the yellow trail up the west ridge via Mała Sowa. This was steep at first but soon leveled off along the ridge, with opening views through the forest of beech, firs and bilberry. A short pull brought us onto the cluttered summit area. We then climbed the 25m observation tower (6 złoty each) to view the fine, if hazy, panorama. To descend, we followed the yellow trail west for sev" - Wielka Sowa, marktrengove, Aug 4, 2017
"Initially I wanted to visit Sokolica and hike along Sokola Perć (Falcon's Path), but then after gaining some hight I've saw snow-covered Babia Góra in a distance. Which highlighted good visability (Babia is around 65 km in a straight line from where I was then). So I decided that Trzy Korony would be a better place to visit since they offer much wider views. After reaching top of the mountain I was not dissapointed. The views were great, marvelous visability. All of it accompanied by a truly spring temperatures. " - Trzy Korony, JakubW, Mar 28, 2017
