Just a few pictures on yesterday’s activation!
This tour starts at about 1800 m ASL at the end of a chair lift that gives access to a skiing area. The lake in the background was created to hold the water that is required for the production of artificial snow in the winter.
In order to get to Hochmölbing you need to climb Schrocken along the ridge before you can walk to the actual SOTA summit on the right which is hidden on this picture. Access to Schrocken is half walking, half scrambling along fixed ropes and a key section where I had to lift Kimo across an abyss between two rocks.
View to the other side of the valley with various other SOTA summits.

Hochmölbing OE/ST-398 on the left in the background. In the picture the peak on the right looks higher than Hochmölbing but its actually 7 m lower…
OE/ST-398 Hochmölbing at 2.236 m
I did find a rock to attach the fishing pole and managed 16 contacts on 2 m but found it hard to send out a spot for 20 m. Peter OE5AUL, however, who was activating Großer Pyhrgas OE/OO-011 at the same time at a distance of 16.6 km was able to spot me. 9 contacts on 20 m
View back to Schrocken
690 m elevation gain and 8,8 km, but a fine tour with perfect weather conditions.
Many thanks to all chasers!
