From Wimbachgrieshuette climed up to Palfelhorn - hiked down nice, remote valey and up to Ingolstaedter House (raining almost constantly) - hike up to summit next day - sunny! pretty long descent to Koenigssee
Route Climbed: Normal ascent (S-face) Date Climbed: July 20, 2002
A long, long walk: 32 kms, 2400 m in height, 16 hrs ...
We started at 6 a.m. in Wimbachbruecke/Berchtesgadener Land, walked through Wimbachgriess, had a little break in Wimbachgriesshuette, walked up to Hundstodgatterl pass, lost the right path, had to return some meters, were on the summit at noon. Brigitte made a little siesta, I jumped with Jessy, our dog, around the summit and made a lot of photos.
Then we descended to Ingolstaedter Haus, took a little lunch and hiked in best photo-light some hours back, always the impressive S-face of Watzmann in front of us. The last 2 hrs. in Wimbachtal were formidable. We reached our car at 10 p.m.
In spite of this it was a great and wonderful walk. Some of the photos of my Hundstod-page come from this long day.
"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."
