History and the first ascent of Vysoka
The first to climb Vysoka’s two summits were Budapest geographer Móric Déchy and mountain guides Ján Ruman-Driečny jr. from Stôla and Martin Spitzkopf from Nova Lesna. The first winter conditions ascent happened on April 11th, 1903 when Vysoka was climbed by Karol Jordán, Harry Berceli and mountain guides Pavol Spitzkopf sr. and Ján Franz sr.
There is a steel cross baring initials “VR” on Vysoka’s north summit. It is in reference and in memory of Václava Raif who died on the mountain. The cross was carried up in 1955 by his friends Oldřích Bublík and Miroslav Jílek.
