Climbed from Altstädten. A long tour covering a lot of elevation, very strenuous for my untrained body. Met a lot of tour skiers on top.
an early onset of winter brought 50cm of fresh snow. These were the perfect conditions for Sabine and me to test equipment and fitness for our ongoing Aconcagua trip. So I climbed the mountain with expedition boots and a 25kg backpack, filled with usuful things as 5 tomes of my encyclopedia. We met noone on a Saturday - quite unusual here!
with the group of my alpine club. Due to lack of snow we started at Gasthof Sonnenklause (1030m) and had some problems with the icy track. Because of the many climbers downhill was almost as in a cablecar area. Cloudy weather
