Sleza is a mountain in the Sudetes foothills (Pogorze Sudeckie) in Lower Silesia, southern Poland. This natural reserve built mostly of granite is 718 m high and covered with forests. The area was described by Ptolemy as Asciburgius in Magna Germania.
The top of the mountain has a PTTK tourist hostel and a TV and radio mast. The mountain and its surrounding region form the protected area called Ślęża Landscape Park.
The Silesians may have been named after the Silingi, though this etymology is disputed; the word is perhaps derived from a Silesian word meaning "wet swampy place".
The current names of the Ślęza river and Mount Ślęża are based on Silesian origins, although the Ślęza is spelled with a standard Z and Mount Ślęża is spelled with a Ż diacritic. Names are based on earlier German documentation as Slesia.

We had lot of fun and hope another meeting will be organized soon...Like always in WS some photos from meeting.
