Ascended in the dark through Gaisloch, which had a nasty waterfall. We took much water with us, as the Dirnbacher hut doesn't have any. Heavy bags. We did Bartlrisse the other day. Wonderful weather, excellent climbing. As there was no way we would want to descent through the waterfall, we took Wachthüttelkamm, which is rather long, but very scenic.
In a second visit on 29th October we did Kowelkapfeiler as a day trip. Even more exposed, equally hard but less sustained. Clear warm weather and no water in Gaisloch.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
