Actually I wanted to do my last big high tour in Monte Rosa this year.
But my cardiologist advised me not to go over 4,000 meters a week. And Corona let the dream burst.
So Plan B was needed - day trips.
Ultimately, I decided to climb the Berchtesgadener Hochthron by climbing the Berchtesgadener Hochthron via ferrata. A tour that I wanted to do over 13 years ago, but decided to use the Pidingen via ferrata.
It was shortly after 8 a.m. after a spartan breakfast in the car, I shouldered my backpack, started the Komoot app, and started walking off the back floor. After about 1 1/2 hours I passed the Scheibenkaser hut, then I continued up the mine path to the rope-in area with a bench. Now I stood here and put on my climbing harness and tied up my via ferrata set. It's been 5 years now since I walked my last via ferrata, the Tabaretta Steig am Ortler.
From the ropeway it went over residual snow to the entrance and then over the entrance plate (B / C) upwards, over a first, steeper passage (C) to the Gamsband. I had to cross the chamois band (A / B) and climb a steep slab (pillar; C) up to the pleasure wall (B). After the light tape I had to cross the little gorge. Then it went on, short but steep. (B / C) So I reached the "ravine ramp" (B), which took me to the "photo crossing". First steep (C), then a little easier (A / B) I crossed up to the "Hanglschuppe". On this it went to the left (C / D) and then steep (C / D) through the so-called rough world and another step (C / D) to the band with the climbing book (WB). After that I almost made it, it became easier (C) to the "exit chimney" (C). After another short ridge passage (Finale; C) I reached the edge of the plateau and made it 4 hours after starting at the car. I stood at the summit cross of the Bechtesgadener Hochthrons. Here I took a break and took a few pictures. Then I continued towards the Störhaus. Since this was closed as a result of the Corona measures, I did not stop and started the descent towards the Scheibenkaser hut. I passed the window bar at 1:45 p.m. From there I went back to the Hinterrossboden on the identical path I walked in the morning, where my car was, which I reached shortly after 2:30 p.m.
Now that I am writing this report, I am sitting in the trunk of my station wagon and am satisfied and blissfully enjoying an apple while I review the experience. And when I have a cell phone network on the long return trip, I upload the tour.

Actually, today I wanted to fly to Montenegro with my friend Sven, whom I met on the Rio Morichal in Venezuela and with whom I had been traveling extensively over the past 20 years, to get to know the country, people and culture. Actually, but then the virus thwarted our planning.Now that my employer insisted that I take part of the planned vacation, I decided to test my strength / endurance on a mountain bike tour in the northern Black Forest.It was particularly nice on the tour that I passed many places that I remembered from before.
So z. For example, the Dreimarkstein, where we celebrated the end of the night after the 10th grade, or the cross-country trail at the Hohlohturm, where I prepared with three friends for our cross-country tours in Lapland over 25 years ago, or the Langmartskopfhütte, where I went with a friend slept after the first stage of the Westweg.It was a great day and a great tour today. To switch off and indulge in memories of the past.I originally wanted to drive from Bad Herrenalb over the Mauzenberg and Mahlberg. But then it was quite late and I felt my legs.
For this I discovered the Metzlinschwanderhof, which I didn't know, lying in a forest clearing above Frauenalb, although I didn't grow up 10 km away.Conclusion: a worthy replacement for Montenegro.

Ich bin sehr gerne draußen unterwegs. Sei es zu Fuß oder mit dem Rad (Mountainbike). Gerne dürfen die Touren auch mal etwas länger und anspruchsvoller sein. Trotzdem steht bei mir nicht nur die sportliche Herausforderung im Vordergrund, sondern ich halte auch gerne mal inne und lass die Natur auf mich wirken oder ich kehre ein und genieße die Pause.Neben meinen Wanderungen und Mountainbike-Touren bin ich auch jedes Jahr mehrere Tage im Hochgebirge unterwegs.
Viele namhafte Gipfel, anspruchsvolle Hochtouren und schwierige Klettersteige habe ich bereits gemacht, so dass sich zwischenzeitlich mein Fokus mehr und mehr auf Mehrtages-Hüttentreckings verlagert.Wer Anregungen oder Fragen zu meinen Touren oder generellen Austausch möchte, ggf.. auch mal eine gemeinsame Unternehmung, ... und dies nicht in den Kommentaren öffentlich tun will, darf mich gerne anschreiben (email@example.com).
