a nice talus work  Sucess!

if you like some talus scrable do the Hohe Geige west ridge, its fun and interesting. The last part is quite airy but not very difficult, some steep slabs and sharp ridge parts are secured with steel ropes.

A sunny day  Sucess!

The day before I had hiked from Trenkwald to the Rüsselsheimer Hütte.

Shortly before 8 am I was on the move, three hours later I got to the summit. On the descent I chose the normal route - and that actually took longer!

West-Ridge  Sucess!

We drove from Augsburg, Germany on Saturday in the afternoon. We got to the trailhead and started climbing to the hut at about 7 pm. Around 8:30 we arrived at the hut and found out that there were no spots left in the hut OR in the "Notlager" either. We ate fried eggs and drank Apfelsaftschöler before everyone went to bed. We slept on the wooden floor of the hut's dinning room. It was actually nice and quiet compared with the bunk room everyone else was in. Sunday morning we woke up at about 5 am, ate a nice breakfast of Müsli and tea and left the hut at 6:20 am in no rush. Less than an hour later we were at the Gawinten lookout. Soon we were occupied with climbing the West Ridge. After 3:45 minutes of beautiful rock and sky, we were on the summit of the Hohe Geige. There was a nice group of Austrians on the summit with us and we all signed the summit register. We took the Normal Route back down to the hut and both felt that the West-Ridge was the more logical, cleaner route. It is a bit more exposed but at least the rock is better. After a couple of hours we were back at the hut where we had lunch (the Minestrone was good). We hiked slowly back down to the valley in 1:20 and drove to Augsburg in just over three hours.
