Okay somewhere back in this thread somebody smart said we should just go climbing. Well I went for a little hike this morning and made this movie at the summit. Prepare to be disappointed. But if you live around here it might be nice to see how the snow is shaping up:

Pan from a view of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Kramerspitze, left to the Zwoelferkopf/Waxenstein combo. The Zugspitze is hidden in cloud, but other Wetterstein peaks are there. Then there is an ugly house. Then the Karwendel Mountains above Mittenwald. Then the Estergebirge (Ester Mountains, sounds wrong to say it like that!). Finally a view of the flatlands where I'll have to speed away in an hour back home.

I've given up the security of knowing I'll die in a bed.

No complaints about that.
