That's a very well written and very interesting article. Many thanks.
Glad you liked it, thanks a lot!
Had to leave the cave at night because it was too stuffy!
Yes, I guess I would have done the same:)
Btw, thanks for your help.
Really excellent! I love reading articles like this one!
Thanks! Flashbacks can be usefull.
I liked very much the reflections upon the historical facts and background!
A nice little piece of montaineering history.
One thing puzzles me though. Mittelhorn, as I understand it, a secondary summit is higher than the official summit?
Wetterhorn 3701m vs. Mittelhorn 3704m.
The Mittlehorn is not very prominent, just about 200 meters above the saddle and not at as spectacular as the Wetterhorn is from the north. I guess this is the reason for calling the Wetterhorn the main summit.
Nice little piece. Love the vintage pictures.
Glad you liked it.
Nice to hear some more history. The old photos bring it to life.
Thanks! There is still much history to write about...
Besides being interesting, both a quality page and about the Alps, it goes well (and neck and neck:)) with my Carpathians page, which surely makes me smile. :D
Thanks! I am on my way to the Carpathian Mountains. :)
OK I'm heading for the Alps then. See you somewhere between Austria and Slovakia, perhaps in Budapest. :)
Nice history, I love old histories, "The golden age of mountaineering". AWESOME!!
Thanks! Yes, mountaineering was quite different in those days, no Gore-Tex, no cell phones…
