We, that is Iris, Thomas and myself, started Saturday afternoon from the parking place Töpperbrücke and hiked up along the waterfalls of Lechnergraben. At the ridgeline we took a bit of a detour to Grünloch. A basin in the forest that is know to be very cold in wintertime became missused for engine tests done by Nazi Germany during WW2. We focused on finding a route over the snow covered sides of the valley and finally made it to the Ybbstaler Hütte 1 at 1343m.
After enjoying dinner, drinks and the heat of the oven in the mountain hut we had a good nights rest. Next day Iris and Thomas headed back to the car and I made my way up to the summit. It took me about 1h50min mostly on compact snow to reach the summit. The one or other knee deep dip in the snow happened because of mountainpines hiding underneath. Chamois barked at me for invading their territory.
A lot of stations came back to my call on 2m FM. In total 40 QSO are in the log. 26 just on 2m FM.
