Hi Christian,

Great hike, 5 summits in three days; wow, beautiful video footage.

Hi Wil!

It was 48 hours exactly (Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon)
Beer? what is beer? hi
well, per day I had 3 bottles of beer or beer with lemon
At this days I can’t eat anything, because if you want to
eat you get thirsty than before … :frowning:
In the 2nd evening I eat a great stale one of soup - that was great!
(a lot of liquid and salty minerals)

On the long hikingtrips over 14 hours per day, I filled the waterbottles
with clean snow from the snowfields. Every water-drop was essential!!!

Great video (as usual) making me want to go there too. Maybe in September when temperatures are lower…

I spent a full day in Höllengebirge activating Grünalmkogel and Hochhirn on Monday. Had carried 3 liters of liquid and arrived totaly dry at Rieder Hütte. I later heard in the evening news that it was the hottest day of the year so far.
