Rysy (2503m) – Highest peak of Poland (1/2)

Rysy is a mountain in the crest of the High Tatras, lying on the border between Poland and Slovakia. Its middle peak at 2,503 meters is the highest point of Poland. The other two peaks (at 2,499m & 2,473m) are on the Slovak side of the border, in the Prešov Region.

A couple of days ago it snowed so much that I am now stuck in fresh snow up to my balls.
In September… WTF!! (Update: Successful Summit in 2014)
