Lift up. Fog, snow and a little rain on top :(. And this on August 10th? Hiked past Salzburger Hochtron and Berchtesgadener Hochtron to Störhaus. Jägertee! Then hiked all the way back to Untersberg liftstation. Off course all the clouds lifted in the afternoon.
No gear for a winter climb (was studying abroad!) so just hiked up. Gorgeous day, especially love how the Austrians have bars on top so you can grab a beer!
I hiked up the trail to the Toni-Lenz-Hütte, then visited the Schellenberger Eishöhle, continued on the Mittagsschartensteig, then reached the Salzburger Hochthron and Geiereck, from where I took the seilbahn down. It was still early so I then hitchhiked to the Almbachklamm nearby, also beautifull place!

I've been so many times up on the Salzburger Hochthron, in all seasons, that I can't even count them any more. And the route Geiereck-Mittagsscharte-Berchtesgadener Hochthron-Stöhrhaus-Maria Gern I've done at least four, if not five times by now (not in mid-winter, of course!). Once I used the trail from the Stöhrhaus directly down to Hallthurm. I don't think I'll do that another time, at least not going down. It's a painfully relentlessly steep descent! I also have gone up the Untersberg via the Marktschellenberg - Toni-Lenz-hut - Schellenberger Sattel - Dopplersteig - Zeppezauerhaus trail, which is quite a spectacular path, although the presence of the cable-car disturbs a bit the scenery...
