"I did Koprovsky Stit after ascending Rysy. Luckily for me, many other hikers had packed down the snow so, unlike for Rysy, I didn't have to do any trailbreaking for this one. The trail is conveniently marked but it gets "scrambly" near the top with a bit of exposure. In the Canadian Rockies, it would be rated as "easier moderate" scramble." - Kôprovský Štít, Taras, Sep 26, 2018
"I did Rysy in one push with Koprovsky Stit. Started very early on the first sunny day after a big dump of snow. Was surprised at the amount of snow - I was struggling through some sections in the waist-deep snow(!). Didn't expect such conditions in Slovakian mountains in September. Luckily for me, the trail was broken between the mountain refuge "Hata pod Rysami" and the summit. I didn't bring microspikes nor ice-axe and felt like I wouldn't mind having them for the final push to the summit. The deep snow made this hike more adventurous than it's normally is.

"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
"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
"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
