Alps climbing or meeting up- S Germany, in 3 or so weeks

Postby Diggler » Wed Sep 07, 2011 9:17 pm

Greetings fellow climbers,

I'm going to be visiting southern Germany soon for a few weeks (until Oct. 2nd, when I fly back to the US) to see family & friends. Will most likely be spending most time around Nuernberg area, although some traveling (either a brief trip to the Alps, or most definitely to Munich for Oktoberfest) would be great! Or if anyone would just want to meet up for some beers around Nuernberg (or the little Dorf of Oettingen (where my unce lives), in the off chance that anyone is around there), or would be interested in doing some climbing, let me know!

If the timing & weather cooperated, I wouldn't mind even giving the normal route on the Matterhorn (Hoernligrat) a try, if anyone is game. That climbing difficulty shouldn't be any hindrance for me, I can usually remember how to tie-in & belay correctly, & I've been spending a fair amount of time in the mountains recently, so the altitude shouldn't be an issue either. Or if there are any day-excursions from Nuernberg or Munich that anyone would suggest, that would be cool too! I lead trad to about 5.10 or so on a good day (as I haven't done any climbing in Germany, I wouldn't be the best at conversions).

Oh yeah, ich kann auch deutsch.

Anyways, let me know if interested, & a safe remainder of the climbing season to all. Ciao, Dirk

Send me a PM about the days in Munich. I'll hit the Oktoberfest on some weekends. I've got some business travel in that time frame, but some time at home too, so maybe we can do a rock climb. Have fun!

Will probably hit up Oktoberfest on the last week of September. If you have no plans for the coming weekend send me a pm, I'd be up for some light mountaineering after spending a couple of weeks resting due to an injury.
