Begeisterter Wanderer, Radlfahrer und Skitourengeher
When I found out that Andrea Heiligensetzer would stop as landlady at the Ostlerhütte after this season, I wanted to go upstairs again to say goodbye.Together with her team, I think she has created a really ￼hospitable atmosphere and thus made the hut something special.And so that the day was well filled, I first rode my bike around the Breitenberg from the PP in the Achtal and climbed over the wild and romantic Reichenbach gorge.

Where otherwise thousands of cars drive during the day and the trees next to the road are ignored, the road was closed to traffic today! Namely between Seefeld and Gut Delling, because the 250th anniversary of the Eichenallee was celebrated.The Eichenallee is "one of the longest and most beautiful of its kind in Europe" writes a report for the State Building Authority Weilheim, which is responsible for the preservation of this historic avenue. "685 oaks between the ages of five and 250 years" are listed in this report for the 2.8 km long, almost dead straight route.And because cycling was pretty good again, there was no a gloans round to the kiosk in Steegen am Ammersee :)

Because a virus 🦠 caught me at the beginning of the week (not the one with the C on the front, but probably with an N, like Noro) and I was together quite a bit in between, there was a small but nice recovery round for the Acheleschwaig.With the pathless piece in the steep forest area from the Scheibum up to the forest path, there was even a little adventure with it 😊

On the last day of my vacation, I took the train to the Carnic border ridge, which separates South Tyrol from East Tyrol. From there you had another beautiful view of the Sexten Dolomites.Along the Carnic High Trail, I then walked over the helmet to the Heimkehrerkreuz and on to the Hornischegg, where the remarkable sticker "South Tyrol is not Italy" was to be found on the summit cross.On the way back there was stylish blower music and the last wheat beer in the Sillianer Hütte before we finally went down and home again.

The absolute queen stage in terms of landscape, seriousness and adventure factor was on the penultimate day of my vacation ... without my having suspected it!In the morning we first went past the tiny ice lake, up to the Giralbascharte, which can be recognized by the prayer flags that can be seen from afar and opened up a view of the Carducci hut and the sea of fog in the south.The Alpinisteig that followed afterwards is described as "overwhelmingly scenic". And indeed it is! Passing the Inner Hole, it is very exposed on the Salvezza ribbon, once even kneeling, into a deep gap with the famous silhouette motif.Continue on narrow ribbons through the mighty northern slopes of the Mitra, through the outer hole filled with snow remnants and over a huge scree terrace to the Elferscharte.Here I decided to walk the second, much racy part of the Alpinisteig, which leads on the north face of the Elfer to the Sentinellascharte. This part is often inaccessible due to icing, residual snow and falling rocks. I also had icy spots, but they could be bridged.From the Sentinellascharte then down about 50 m and along the south side of the Sesto Croda Rossa (= tens of the Sesto sundial) to the entrance to the Via Ferrata Mario Zandonella (C). The path had slipped in two places and was just so passable￼ with fixed ropes ... but only in one direction. From now on everything had to work, the way back cut off!The via ferrata had some vertical C-passages that I know more as C / D. And then I was glad to have my sling with carabiner :)The summit of the Rotwand has a fantastic view of the valley and at 2936 m was also the highest point of my vacation. Even the way back (A / B) was tough in some places in the demanding walking area. The view back and my room on the Rotwandwiesenhütte was all the more beautiful.

From the PP of the train to the Rotwandwiesen in Moos, it first went over the Fischleintalboden to the Talschlusshütte and on through the shady Altensteinertal from behind to the Drei-Zinnen-Hütte, so to speak.Then past the Frankfurter Würschtl (it's really called that 😁) and through the old war tunnel up to the ￼Paternsattel (don’t forget your headlamp, because it’s really inside there￼). Then up and down on separate via ferratas for the ascent and descent ￼ to the Paternkofel summit, opposite the famous three.From the Paternsattel over the very winding and very varied Schartensteig long along and in between the individual towers, bands and bay windows ￼of the floor node.At some point and somehow you come out on a saddle and in another half an hour you are at the beautiful and equally located Bullelejochhütte.After I had washed down the small frustration of not getting any of the very few places to stay here with two wheat beers, I went down to the venerable Zsigmonyhütte, which was already in the shade.

Luckily, when you leave the Savio hut in the morning, you don't have a clue of the hustle and bustle that awaits you two and a half hours later at the Auronzo hut, because the Sentiero Bonacossa is lonely and overwhelmingly the way it left off the day before .At Monte Campedelle, however, when you see the huge parking lot on the Auronzo in front of the Drei Zinnen for the first time in all its glory and the first drone flies over you, you are finally back in civilization.I then lined up in the procession, which leads over to the Lavaredo hut on a stroller-friendly route and then snakes in parts over the Lavaredo pass to the Drei-Zinnen-Hütte. And just like the cappuccino on St.After an extra turn on the Sextener Stein, I finally went up over the wide floors on the Langenarm under the large roof of the western pinnacle, which Alexander Huber was the first to climb red point in 2007.The descent to the car was long and would probably have taken forever if a local hiking guide hadn't taken me with her from the toll station :)

In the meantime I'm back home, but after the four days in my guesthouse in Toblach, it went even further ... namely once across the Sesto Dolomites with several overnight stays in a hut. In the area of the Drei Zinnen, however, I was missing a hut and I had considered bivouacking. On site, however, I decided against it, as it was already below zero at 2000 m during the night.So with another overnight stay in the valley it became two loops that met at the Drei-Zinnen-Hütte.The first loop led south of the Drei Zinnen on the extremely entertaining Sentiero Bonacossa over several gaps and cirques (= Cadini) through the bizarre jagged forest of the Cadini group.From the valley station of the chairlift at the southern end of Lake Misurina, it went up to the Rifugio Col de Varda and over scree slopes over to Forcella di Misurina.Secured a crumbly craggy gully down into Cadin della Neve, on the opposite side over several short ladders up to Forcella del Diavolo, from which you have a good view of the famous three, of which you can only see two at this point :)Once more crumbly down and after a short ascent in the opposite direction, the Savio hut, which had remained very original, was reached. There I spent a pretty fresh night in the camp with everything I had to wear :)In the southern part of the Sesto Dolomites, both the language border and the administrative border of the autonomous region of South Tyrol have been clearly exceeded and I have renamed the series without further ado.
