"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

Four of our group declined the option of the Grade 2 scramble to the summit, so Ivo our guide had four of us in his summit party. I was of two minds myself, as I am not a confident scrambler. However, I had wanted to climb to the summit of Mount Olympus since I was a boy, when my passion for Ancient Greece started. I had come a" - Mount Olympus, Mytikas Peak, marktrengove, Sep 13, 2017
"Me, Misko Taneski and Aleksandar Tatalovic - Tatko went to climb Grossglockner on September 12 and the weather was terrible but somehow we manage to arrive to the Studlhutte in a storm thanks to two chech guys who found the way in the snow. We spend the night there and the day after we started going for the summit. The weather was perfect but a lot of snow felt the previous day so it was hard to walk. When we arrived to the next hut Tatko felt a little tired because he wasn't practicing mountaineering long time so he made a brave decision and stopped there telling us that he made his goal for " - Grossglockner, FilipVasileski, Sep 13, 2017
"With friends Rhona Fraser, Robin Howie and Ken Thomson. To celebrate my 80th birthday I had previously ascended the highest mountains of England, Wales and Northern Ireland (Scafell Pike, Snowdon and Slieve Donard). Today I completed the celebration with the ascent of Ben Nevis by the tourist route from Glen Nevis Visitor Centre. The weather forecasts had been for not so good weather but the day before the forecast changed for the better to no rain and this was, indeed, the case on the day. Lots of others were making the ascent including a lady also celebrating her 80th birthday by making the " - Ben Nevis, peter43, Aug 26, 2017
