High risk of avalanches. The peak can be reached most of the year, as long as there’s no snow. At the summit is a memorial to the Victims of the Krkonoše mountains (Giant Mountains). It is a former stone chapel, in which there are plaques with the names of people who died here as a consequence of avalanches, falls, lightning or frost.
