First ascent and history of Javorovy Peak

The first documented summer ascent is from August 1897, in which Karol Englisch took part with his mother Antónia with the help of mountain guide Ján Hunsdorfer.

The first winter ascent was 12 years later, in December 1911. It was undertaken by Julius Andreas Hefty together with Gyula Komarnicki.

It has an interesting name, after the neighboring Javorova Valley on the north, as majestic maples grew in its forests – “javor” in Slovak means maple tree. Polish: Jaworowy Szczyt, German: Krötenseespitze, Hungarian: Varangyostavi gyps, Javorovacsúcs

Did you know that 2-3 centuries ago, our great-grandfathers not only made beautiful furniture from maple, or carved various works of art, but that sugar was also made from it? This production is still current, although of course not from the maples of our oldest National Park. You would hardly find maples here now, as their wood was consumed by the metallurgical industry.
