Winter Wonderland

Sunny shot of my most favourite mountain in 2014 – “The Alpspitze“. Took this one at the first of January 2015. What a great day to start the new year!

Good Summit

Short video (also first time playing with the GoPro in an outdoor environment) and quick edit of my climb at Alpspitze /Austria some weeks ago. The Alpspitze, with it’s 2.628m one of the highest mountains in Germany. Located directly beside the Zugspitze in Garmisch-Partenkirchen it is well known for the fantastic views and nice lead up to the summit. The weather was almost perfect as the sun came out from time to time and clouds opened up. Overall a 6 hours journey by using the mountain railway to get up to Osterfelderkopf (2050m) and from there the Alpspitz-Ferrata to the top. It’s not the hardest climb to do and because of it’s secure set up a good start for “via ferratas“. Still, it has it’s moments as drop downs from a couple of hundred meters are all around. If you want to do it you should be free from giddiness.
