Kościelec (2,155 m above sea level) is a mountain in the High Tatras in the Valley Gąsienicowa of Poland.
The Tatras are Poland’s only alpine-type mountains, indeed forming the highest part of the huge transboundary arc that is SE Europe’s Carpathian chain. They cover just 785 km2, being only 57 km long in a straight line, and as little as 19 km wide.

Getting There 

From Zakopane enter the Tatrzański Tatra National Park on foot. The road in the Gąsienicowa Meadow is closed to vehicles, so the only way to reach the shelter is by foot.
A two hour hike from any of the hut shelters/base camps.

Average climb time is 1.3 hours.Gear placement is tough. Micro nuts work best. Very few cam positions.Climbed this route when wet, so the 5.6 felts like a lot more. The route jogs far to the left on the first pitch. You'll need a long cordelette to build your actors as placements tend to be far apart....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
