Absolutely, I know the historical aspect of technical climbs is as interesting for you as for me!
You don't have to be an armchair mountaineer to find the history exciting! But no matter how old *you* get Borut, I am thinking of you as someone eager to get out and solo crumbly rock in the moonlight. :) You actually do it too. :D
And just one tip, Michael. When inserting a left aligned picture, you may want to hit after the end of its code SHIFT+ENTER. So, you get rid of that one line, running above the picture. See the difference between picture 1 (where I did it) and picture 2.
Hi Vid, thanks for the info! For some reason I had a hard time seeing the difference at first but now I do. I'll watch for that issue (as I tend to accumulate too many spaces between paragraphs as I wander around inserting pictures).
This is how route pages should be made. You and Dow Williams are truly the masters of route pages, Michael. Well done; this one's going on my life list.
Wow thanks Timmy! Naw, Dow's pages are a lot better. Since we were two guys with cameras, we did get more pictures than I usually get though, and that helped a lot.
Climbs like this are worth visiting, for sure!
Thanks Chief, you would like that slab traverse, it's pretty exciting!
Great page of a great classic route! The shot of the crux "Quergang" is the best depiction of that that I´ve seen.
Dülfer was the man! Shame that he died so early!
I know...he was a music student, and only climbed hard for 5 years. If he had survived the war, then the history of rock climbing would have a much sharper curve in the 1920s, I think.
Congrats on your climb. That's how route pages should be made, makes me wanna climb it!
Great work, thanks for posting that on SP, thrilling pics and everything. Cheers, Michael
