Finally, there comes the most fantastic moment during every climbing. The moment when I am just a few steps away from the summit, when I know that nothing will stand in my way, when I know that I won… I won not only with the mountain or the weather but above all I won with myself, my weakness and my fear, when I can thank the mountain for being this time kind to me. I would not give these moments to anybody for all the world and if I need to overcome some difficulties on my way to the summit and get close to some vague border between the calculated risk and recklessness, that’s all right, I agree. I agree to the struggle with all dangers that are awaiting me. I agree to the winds which all weeks long tousle the tents and make me almost crazy. I agree to the routes set at the limits of endurance. I agree to the fight. The reward that I get for all these hardships is immeasurable. It’s the joy of life.”

Jerzy Kukuczka, an excerpt from the book “Mój pionowy świat”.

“Na Szczytach Świata” ("At the top of the world") Jerzy Kukuczka and Tomasz Malanowski, the book (PL)


“Na szczytach świata” is a record of high-altitude memories of Jerzy Kukuczka, the best Polish climber of XX century. A long interview conducted and compiled by Tomasz Malanowski, a frank and open discussion of many mountain topics - the difficult beginning being the roots of his later Himalayan successes, struggling with yourself, the routes established on the world’s fourteen highest summits, climbing partners, death and friendship and the choice whether to help and put yourself at risk or save your own life, complicated preparations for expeditions which often started with paint works on factory chimneys as well as many other issues that were close to Jerzy’s heart. This is a simple and honest dialogue, far from the mountain martyrdom.

“Jurek”, the film by Paweł Wysoczański (PL, English subtitles)


A documentary film directed by Paweł Wysoczański is the first from many years film presenting Jerzy Kukuczka as a real, flesh and blood persons. The man who climbs up – not only literally, but also metaphorically and symbolically, from a socialist worker to an international media star. Jurek started his climbing career with no money and equipment and at the end he was the rightful king of the Himalayas.
