History and the first ascent of Lomnicky Peak

Lomnicak was long considered the highest summit in High Tatras and the locals used to call it “Grand Father” in the past.

Very likely, the first person to summit Lomnicak was a famous English traveller and doctor Robert Townson. His ascent went from Mala Studena Valley, leading via Filmarky Colouir, via Lomnicke Pass, and up the today’s standard route.

It is very certain that the summit was also reached by Spis gold-diggers who were in search of their fortune in the north couloirs of Lomnicky Peak.

And one more piece of history – a shepherd Jakub Fábry worked in the region between 1860 to 1890 and would boast that he climbed to the the summit of “Grand Father”.
