Trying to escape above the clouds Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2012
Bad weather all around Kärnten but the weather report called for clear skies above 1700m. So we drove up to Dobratsch through one layer of clouds only to find another one closely overhead. Disappointing views
I camped at camping Seehof by the Vassacher lake in Villach, then took the first bus up the Villacher Alpenstrasse. Then walked from the parking in 1,5 hour up to the summit via the Panoramaweg. Down via the Jagersteig. Visited the Alpengarten on the way back. Great views, sunny day, few clouds. Not to crowded in the morning, but then lots of Slovenian tourist groups. All together a nice daytrip.
29.04.2007 - Another nice hike, already more people around now...
22.04.2007 - Nice sunday-afternoon hike. Nearly half of the snow melted away compared to my last ascent 12 days ago (due to the very warm conditions at the moment)!. Beautiful crocus fields on the lower slopes.
10.04.2007 - Great weather, strenuous ascent due to soft snow (but anyhow my fastest ascent up to now), enjoyed the summit, the sunset and the whole descent completely alone (except a beer and good music from my MP3-player... ;)).
03.01.2007 - Nice hike during a full moon night, app. -5°C, a few centimeters of fresh fallen snow from the day before, really nice.
27.12.2006 - Perfect weather and breathtaking panorama (Julian Alps, Carnic Alps, Hohe Tauern...)
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
