Comments: Almost true. I nearly decked, but just from half of the wall ;). I go away from Lovers Way (Droga Amantow) together with piece of wood which was used for my precursors. The route terminating at the window in castle wall, just right part of the photo. The time, feeling before and inevitability of the fall was so stressful, I don't remember anything when happened.

Comments: Even not so long ago (8-10 years) I widely use my 65cm ax/hammer Hummingbird. It was not so easy to import from CAMP to communist Poland at mid 80’. I miss it on my last 12 mounts journey climbing all (ABC) CO 14ers. Many class4/easy5 routes in winter. It will be the best as ax and ice tool in one.

Comments: Me and Jacek Krawczyk climbed this route in about 20 pitches in 4 blocks with some simul climb easy section and stretching 60-meter rope few times. Take us less then 10 h at the 2003 fall. The leader climb OS above The Oasis.

Above The Ramp last quarter of the route we climb in 3-4 pitches as new variation. No bolts or iron. Small and medium cams & stopers. From the Ramp go up and easy traverse right under the slab to the belay tree on the right side of the slab. 2-nd pitch traverse left to s... more >>

Comments: It is so funny. There is 10-s better or bigger places to climb in Poland then this 14-th century Kamieniec Castle near Krosno. But this place is so special for me because I was start climbing there 30 years ago and put more then hundred new routes.

Comments: Did it 3 times. For me Glowering Spot and transition at Changing Corners (did 2 times) are more tricky and no more safety.

Comments: Did it solo in 10 days as first Polish solo grade VI and real A4. At 4-th day at the morning (pitch 7) take huge 80' fall (my fault). So I easy down and after that climb 1 pitch per day.

10 years ago me, my friend (did solo too) and Mc from Taco, all rate only one pitch as A4 but everyone different. So I think the best rating is (was?) 5.8 A4- for entire route.
