Route Climbed: From Gschnitztal (Austrian side) Date Climbed: 16.8.00
We came to the Austrian Tribulaun hut and since we did not know much about this mountain, asked the landlady what the way is like. She told us: "No problem! *Everybody* can make this!" In fact, we made it, though it is not easy. Crushed rock for 500 vertical meters without any path at up to 35°. Consequently you make two steps up and 1 down. Very exhausting. From the col it is a very easy climbing (I-II) with some fixed, though partly loose ropes (attention). When we came down, we met a climber, who shortly afer we met him, decided to get back.
So: Nice mountain, excellent view, partly no track and definitely not for *everybody*.
"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."
