on your success!
Thank you. For me, the Obergabelhorn 4063m is one of the insidiously 4000er of the Alps. More than Matterhorn. Regards.
I hope your second had a good belay, that cornice looked a bit shakey. Great foto though.
Ok, it is not completely security conformal :-)
But mountaineering is risky anyway, or?
I agree with you, taking risks gets the adrenaline running, but good to see you had a safety rope anyway. Sometimes we have to take a chance to achieve something but experience often tells us how big a risk we're taking. It doesn't worry me if I have to retreat and come back another day.
You are right. In any case, security in mountain, is for me duration issue.
A beautiful summer.
We will all miss you, brother.
Your spirit will soar over the mountains forever,
Goodbye my friend,
What a fantastic and full of real joy photo it is.
You loved those Alps so much, I believe you enjoy the most beautiful mountains somewhere there now.
