Video: OE5JFE activates 2 summits in the Gesäuse Nationalpark

Hello everyone,

This time I am taking you to the Austrian Nationalpark Gesäuse and its highest summit Hochtor OE/ST-031.
Day 1 starts with the ascent to Hochzinödl OE/ST-066 activation and an overnight stay at Hesshütte mountain hut.

The climb on day 2 follows a clever arrangement of zig-zag path sections and steel-cable secured climbing sections to the ridgeline and further on to the summit at 2369m.

Joe, thank you very much for the opportunity to once again see the beautiful nature of the Alps. Very high quality photos, videos. Perfectly mounted movie!

Hello Marat,

A pleasure to share with the SOTA community. That reminds me how lucky I am living in a diverse area with easy walks and big hikes in the alps nearby.

Hi Toru-san,

Thank you for your feedback. I hope you are doing fine.
When we are beyond Cov-19 maybe you want to visit OE for some activations? :+1:

Take care and all the best.
