"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
"Decided to turn around just above the peak, at an indicated GPS altitude of 2483m. The lack of climbing experience, steep path, wet rocks and overcrowding meant pushing the summit under unwanted pressure. It was an incredible adventure though :)" - Rysy, thyDusk666, Jun 17, 2018
"Due to very poor visibility, large amount of fresh snow and a dangerous-looking traverse, we had to turn back just below the summit. Anyway it was a fun winter climb in a beautiful terrain, my first real winter climb :) " - Rysy, zoltanban, Feb 4, 2018
"An ascent of the mountain from the Slovak side. Although the route is a marked trail, I decided to engage the services of Grzegorz Kubicki, Tatra guide and a member of the Polish mountain rescue, whose chata we were renting. I had never engaged a guide before - and Grzegorz was quite excellent. He has a deep knowledge of the Tatra, is engaging company, and shares his love of these mountains in excellent English. I thoroughly recommend him - see his Facebook page at https://en-gb.facebook.com/Grzegorz-Kubicki-Przewodnik-Tatrza%C5%84ski-1591458191071747/. We took the long drive round fro" - Rysy, marktrengove, Aug 10, 2017
"Start at Sliezky dom 1600 m st 8.00, by 11.30 we reached the summit. We returned by Granatova Lavka to Sliezky Dom, finished at 15.30, windy, clowdy, later in the day clear sky.." - Bradavica, niklasbennwik, Jun 13, 2017
