This hike was nuts! Very challenging, very rocky, but completely worth it. It's a really long day hike, 4 hours up and 4 back minimum and not including breaks. You'll have to park on the road and walk to the trailhead via a paved road, it's very scenic. You'll head into the woods and cross over a river flowing out of the mountains multiple times. As you head up, you'll be on some rocky switchbacks to reach two lakes. From there the climb gets more vertical. There are some spots where you have to pull yourself up with chains and a few ladders. About 45 mins before the peak, there's a hut where you can get some hot meals, drinks, beers, and even souvenirs. I think you can stay there overnight too. There's an outhouse nearby. From there the summit is a tough vertical scramble on wiggly rocks, but you'll be rewarded with amazing views of Poland and Slovakia. One of the best hikes I've done!
