What does "difficult mountain climbing" mean on Tabacco map?

Especially for non-climbers. Does it mean technical difficulties? What kind? Should there be used some climbing gear? Would be better if these paths were transformed to via ferratas?

Climber Involved in Rescue Issued Citation

This is not just. The rescuer spent several hours with the fallen climber, including building an anchor to secure the victim to the ledge he was on. He waited until SAR arrived to take the injured climber away. After it was all over with, he was issued a citation for interfering with the rescue! How about using a little discretion here?

repairing chew holes in down bag

I've always left my inner tent door open, to allow animals to explore the tent without the need to chew through it.

Unfortunately. on the last day of a recent trip, an animal (probably a ground squirrel) came into the tent and chewed 6 small (~1 cm) holes in my down sleeping bag.

I've tried repairing one of the holes with a patch of tenacious tape, but I'm not convinced the tape will hold; after ...

A friend and fellow climber, Greg Hein, has been missing since not returning this past Monday, July 7th. I heard that he was headed to Mt. Goddard from Florence Lake and that he may have been doing the Goddard Loop. Please spread the word and keep an eye out!

Driving to RMNP from the East

Headin' to RMNP in a few weeks and was curious which driving approach is easier right now due to road construction. Normally I come in from the north on 34 via Loveland, but was considering coming in from the south via 36. I talked to someone today that said there is a lot of construction on 36 that added a significant amount of time to his drive. I would be coming through this area very ...

Short backpacking trip this month -- Where should I go?

I haven't backpacked in 20 years, but I've got a funny window to do just that this month: all of a Sunday and Monday; I can also leave Saturday night around 6:00 pm, which could be enough time to reach a trailhead and find a campsite (maybe). (I wish I had one more day so I could hike for day, have a summit day, and hike back for a day...but I don't.)

I want to ...

Best non-technical hike/scramble near Innsbruck/Igls, AT)?

Best non-technical hike or scramble near Innsbruck? (Or more specifically, near Igls near Innsbruck, AT?)
Recommendations? Hopefully a nice peak that's class 1, 2, or 3.
This is for summer (July).

I'm considering Patscherkofel, but it doesn't sound too exciting. Is it better to catch a local bus and go for a different mountain?

Thanks in advance.
