July 9, 2002: Getting better...keep up the good work!
Fine improvement. Cheers, Rahel
I recently adopted and improved this page. Photos will follow.
very good work, I know how ppoor the page was before it.
what I have to add: You deleted the section "Best time", which I think is important. In last summer the normal ice route to Watzespitze developed dangerous, difficult and in later summer impossible. Of course we don't know how the next summer will be. But August may be too late to find good conditions on the glacier.
German speakers may find reports about the conditions at the forum on www.bergsteigen.at (http://forum.bergsteigen.at/index.php?site=touren)
Thank you. I added your link.
Watzespitze seems to be a real interesting mountain. Wanted to do the east ridge this summer 2003 but bad conditions for the descent on the glacier route made us think it over. Might do it next year, hope for a snowy winter. BTW: if only the rock in the Ötztaler Alps were better...
