Description:

This is one of the tallest mountains in the Tatry range. It is mainly granite, dolomite, and limestone. There is a large danger from thunderstorms as the rocks get very slippery. Also there is a large metal cross at the peak which attracts a lot of lightning, causing most of the dangers.

5 out of 5 stars Giewont

Very tough to climb in thunder, lightning, and pouring rain. With the slippery stone, it is pretty insane.
