Thanks Fox,
I can not belive in such great response...Truly inspiration always comes from you, so thank you.
Of course, I remember and I keep in my mind all of you...Ottawa Doug (you played "Dark Side of the Moon", when I climbed SS/PO.BTW congrats for Tribal R.) and Werner B ( you gave me a ride on SS/PO, when I carried a water)and..., and...

I just try to organise myself in the normal life after the trip, so be patient please...I will try to write another Euro's story if you like the first. Also,step by step I will put more things my website (

Thank you again for all your comments.

Being the first one in line at the Camp 4 Kiosk is not proud. Stealing coffee is not proud either. Climbing the Shield solo is. Nice job.

Brings back memories of climbing it in '91. Thanks for sharing.

You and hard work are no stranger. I was pretty maxed after doing it with a partner. Well done.

I have a few answers:
1. I did not win Acopa shoes, but many thanks for mentioning W. A. name.
2. Always, I invite everybody to the Tatras. We have there our Camp 4, which we call Tabor - awesome place. All Polish climbers were born in the Tatras.
3. The kiosk shot - 1/2.5/F3.4/ISO200/-0.7EV
4. I do not use a tripod enough, but also I have my secret tricks when I take photos...
5. Tom? As I wrote, sometimes I asked myself "Where is Tom?", because you are like a team member for most of parties on the Big Stone.
6. Nobody steal the coffee!!! When you buy a first coffee, than you can fill your cup for free - this is official Cafeteria policy (offer). After some time, I realised that always my second coffee taste much better than the first. Because I am Euro, I always buy the first one, but locals do not waste a time and they just start a day from the second coffee. They are smart!!!!When I dreamt about a free coffee, that was the dream about the second one.

Thanks for all response, congrats and warm comments

I love how you point out that you buy the first coffee and the next one is free, but some others merely choose to start with the second coffee. Funny, no? :)

Hope to see you sometime again in the valley.
Congrats again.
