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.
"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls."
