Report

I was intending to run this route over the weekend but there was a lot of snow. As I am staying in the area for a week I decided to run at the end of my visit (today). A lot of the snow had melted but there were still several either snowy and icy or muddy and slippy parts along the ridge the higher I got. Despite these challenges, I had fun the entire time. I carried two litres of water with me and, because it was not that warm, that was enough for the entire 4 and a half hours (there are no natural water sources on the route). I lost some time on the steep climbs that were very muddy and also on the last climb (Hochhäderich) where there was a lot of climbing using ropes which I am not that good at, but otherwise I felt good and in control. It was probably one of the most beautiful and enjoyable runs I have done.
