Update from @stephan.keck and @kaeckstn Fabio Keck - European 7 Summits. After the “Vordere Grauspitze” in Liechtenstein they have now successfully climbed the Zugspitze in Germany and the Großglockner in Austria. The Zugspitze was without snow so they climbed this summit without skis. However on the Großglockner there was 60cm fresh snow on the summit, so they were waist-deep in the snow when approaching the summit. Now they are on the way to Slovenia for our last mountain the Triglav. #markerbindings#rulethemountain#alpinist

Ya don’t know till you go. We looked at this line from day one at camp and debated on weather or not it was holding good snow. On this bad weather day we decided to go check it out. The conditions were best described by @sage_cattabriga_alosa as similar to a wet then refrozen snow bank full or rocks #notideal . On the descent my skis chattered on the ice as rocks trundled by me. After we all got to the bottom safe we laughed about just how poor the skiing was “At least now we know” Regardless it was a great way to spend our time on what would have otherwise been a hangout in camp day. . @dutchsimpson
