Robson Glacier & Snowbird Pass. Canadian Rockies of BC 2013

photos: 40
12/13 October 2013. Between somberness and brilliant sunshine, two different days spent on hiking along Robson River valley, climbing up to the edge of high moraine of mighty Robson Glacier and further towards Snowbird Pass, unfortunately not reached due to lack of any trace across vast snowfields, deep snow and short day. Impressive, glaciated scenery of Mount Robson and neighbouring massifs admired from perfect vantage points in the East. Enjoy.

Scottish impressions 2010

photos: 74
The album presents some selected views from last springtime in Scotland caught while crossing that idyllic land of mountains and lakes in the earliest stage of the first of three last year's Trans European journeys of mine. Across the mystic Highlands, from Glasgow through Glencoe and Fort William with Ben Nevis climb(series of pics will appear in a separate album here) along glens and above silent lakes to windy, remote Isle of Skye and back North through neverending heathfields and mountain passes to medieval Edinburgh. Wonderful memories of great trip with some unforgetable, fairy-tale impressions in typically Scottish weather mixture of equally sudden storms and sunny spells.

Heading to Vihren peak. Pirin mountains, Bulgaria 2010

photos: 59
The end of September on Pirin's highest peak. As far as I remember the area used to attract my mind's interest long ago... The mountains, indeed, as many have already mentioned very much resemble our Tatras excluding marble Vihren massif. Forced to resign from Koncheto ridge traverse and bivouacing due to further plans, we took the simplest, southern summit route leading from Bansko town via Vihren hut and Vihrenski Preslap plateau. The last mountain on our European trail kicked our asses totally.
The impression we'll remember most about the trip will be that arduous climb while which the childish ambitions mixed with the complete discouragement and looking for all possible excuses not to go any step further... and as it often happens, the Sun coming out through clouds and the snow-white pyramide of the peak shining above the head on the right moment tipped the balance. For hundred times that was truly worth of continuing. For those views, awaited for years, for those incredibly big herds of chamoises encountered on the way back down the valley in awesome evening scenery. It started to rain heavily the next day...

In the Home of the Giants. Jotunheimen, Norway 2010

photos: 56
Early August time Norwegian Land of Giants welcomed me, coming from Far North after a visit to Lofoten Islands, with a tearful drizzle from steel coloured sky. Though full of holes, narrow driveway upwards the valley to Spiterstulen base hidden deeply in the mountains was truly worth the effort. On the following day which was my very last chance for climbing action the good luck was once again by my side. Cloudy skies abstained from giving any more rain and the hike along the eastern ridge towards summit of the highest mountain peak of the whole Scandinavia - Galdhopiggen - above staggering tongues of giant glaciers opening their icy jaws with thousands of seracs and crevasses was an absolutely fantastic experience. Besides the magic of the ice armoured mountains arising one after another from beyond the clouds - the most rugged and primeval landscape I've ever encountered. And everything would be even more brilliant if not the fact that numerous pics from the Jotunheimen hike perished somewhere in the hard disk mess not saved well enough. All that survived is being presented here.

Crazy trip with no planned accommodation and travel timetable fallen straight down from gracious heaven...including visiting never sleeping Madrid, golden night behind medieval las Murallas of Avila and finally crossing Sierra de Gredos - the main mountain chain of central Spain culminating in its most impressive, high granite nest of Circo de Gredos, where I found myself after some surprising situations on the way, to call them even simply wonderful fickle fingers of fate...
Considering shortage of time I was absolutely lucky to get to the very heart of the mountains and get out of there on time to reach my plane back to Ireland and what is most important succeed in climbing Almanzor, the highest peak of the whole range. I've never seen mountains that in look of their postglacial forms and the highest rocky part remind my beloved High Tatras so much! Superb hiking and climbing area, wonderful nature with numerous herds of wild iberian ibexes...Unforgetable adventure that makes you want to come back there.
Sierra de Gredos, Castilla y Leon, Spain, 26/27 September 2009

Carrantuohill & Gap of Dunloe. Ireland 2007

photos: 8
The album presents some images from my 3-day trip to Ireland’s highest mountain range of Macgillycuddy’s Reeks in beautiful Kerry county. The trip was undertaken 17-19th April 2007 during absolutely gorgeous...needless to say sensational for Irish conditions...weather time. Wonderful, evening walking through famous Gap of Dunloe and successful Carrauntoohil peak climb. Great adventure, unforgetable impressions of those spring moments.
