Climbing Ganek and Rumanov Peak
Ganek is located above three valleys – Rumanova, Czech, and Kacacia. Mountain guide leads the climb up an exposed south-east rib and the ascent ends with the most beautiful section – Ganek’s Gallery.
It is possible to “run up” on the nearby Rumanov Peak on the way down, however, this depends on time available and current weather-terrain conditions.
Our guides recommend to spend the night before the ascent at the Lodge at Popradske Lake due to early start. We will arrange all necessary booking and transporation to the Lodge for you.
There are spectacular views from the summit of Ganek towards Ladovy Peak, Vysoka, and down on some seldom visited north valleys.
Climbing history of Ganek and Rumanov
Climbing interest about this peak goes back to 1870s. However, the first people that successfully conquered the highest peak on Ganek went up the classic south-east ridge on August 11, 1985 – Wladyslaw Kleczyński, Józef Gasienic and Klimek Bachleda who was famous as “the king” of mountain guides.
