Lomnický štít (without Gerlachovská tower) II. the highest in Slovakia offers several options to get to its top. In addition to not very sporty cable car rides, several easy and difficult routes lead to it, accessible with leaders or with the appropriate authorization (climbing associations, instructors …). One of those easy paths (IV, rather III UIAA) is the edge on the line between the gable and Lomnický sedlo, called Birkenmajerova (similar to a number of adjacent paths).

Lomnické sedlo - Emericy trough

Boarding the wall

Follow the serpentines along the „normal“ to the place where the road through the rubble turns right / east under the Emericy trough. Above the footpath is a rock edge with a chain and above it the first stand.

Birkenmajer's edge

3 climbing lengths

From the first stand directly up, the trough on the right provides a possible escape route (stands for abseiling). Some places can be bypassed left and right, then returned to the edge, on the upper footbridge sharply to the right only a few meters to the railing at the top of Lomnický štít. In the last length, the railing is occasionally visible. Good solid rock.
