I'd Fall Off!

I'd be so enthralled with that view that I'd take a bad step and fall off! Beautiful!

Re: Ein mal frei!

Danke! Etwas später musste aber das Seil raus (roped part).

The view tends to be good:

- View 1
- View 2

Besten Dank & viele Grüße!

Re: Ein mal frei!

Now that is what I am talking about! Wie ist es im Schnee zu abseilen? Das hab i ja no nit gemacht. Im Winter eiskletter ich oder Bergsteige einige einfacher Routen.

Re: Ein mal frei!

Hier ging es - Haken vorhanden oder Felsköpferl. Wenn keinerlei Haken vorhanden, schaue ich im Winter immer nach Möglichkeiten, am Fels zu sichern.
Nur im Schnee abzuseilen ist eine delikate Geschichte, um es mal vorsichtig auszudrücken - entweder man hat Pickets oder einer klettert vom anderen mit Steckpickel gesichert ab, dann der andere, wieder vom anderen von unten gesichert (heikel).
"Einfach" nach Fels und Eis suchen - ein paar Schrauben und Keile hat man ja meist dabei (v.a. wenn abseilen geplant ist).
In den Situationen, wo es bei mir kritisch wurde, waren die Fehler letztlich in der Planung zu suchen.

And how come you speak German anyways?

Viele Grüße!
