Strong gale, cold, and bad visibility near the summit. The preloaded GPS tracks helped us finding the route.
Cool route. We did for training, since my friend Erich "der Froshman" does not have a lot of Alpine experience.
I have done this mountian many times, but as only on July 2005 touched the real summit, with my dog Vigia and another dog, Duncan.
descent Rote Schütt Flanke - very good snow condition
from Puchberg through Baumgartner - descend on the Fadensteig, with the rack-railway - descend through Südlicher Grafensteig to Baumgartner, from Weichtalhaus through Weichtalklamm and the Kientaler Huette, Nördlicher Grafensteig
nice climb - good conditions (some hard snow) - good weather (fog in the valley, sun on the mountain)
