“Yesterday we managed to take advantage of the short weather window, and we are delighted together with Jedrek Baranowski that we have reached the Laila Peak summit. The mountain is exceptional, and even though we did not manage to get down from the very top, it was a piece of skiing adventure for both of us. Additionally, it is the first Polish ascent to Laila Peak!”

Andrzej managed to ski down Laila Peak (elevation exactly 20,000ft) just two weeks after scoring a first decent down a 20,269ft peak called Yawash Sar II. As you can imagine, wifi ain’t so good out there so it takes a day to publish videos.
