Vysoké Tatry - High Tatras
High Tatras are the highest sub range of Carpathian Mountains. Due to the relatively northern location the environment can be considered strictly alpine. The only difference between Alps and High Tatras is the size and there are no glaciers in High Tatras. The weather conditions are the same and even though the highest peak is only 8710 (Lomnický štít) feet high, you won't do the mistake if you treat it as 13 000er. Twice as much during winter. Most of the climbing is on granite. The highest face is 2,952 feet high north face of Malý Kežmarský štít (peak), but in the area within one hours car ride you can find well secured sport climbs as well. The area is suitable for any style of climbing: ice climbs, mixed climbs, trad climbs, pure alpine acscents, sport climbs or you can do the hiking, if you do not feel like climbing.
