summiting.

this was a very nice week! on thursday, we had a bank holiday in austria, so roman and i went hiking with 2 friends, nici and berni. our goal was to reach the veitsch summit via the rodel (a popular skiroute in winter). it’s a beautiful path!

yesterday, i did my first solo hike – i summited the schneeberg, which is lower austria’s highest mountain (2076 m). the route is approximately 15 kilometers long, with about 1200 metres of difference in altitude. it took me about 3,5 hours to get up there. it was rather hot and i had to rest a lot ;)
i completed the hike down in 2,5 hours.
