Title :
Hochschwab 2 day hike - postponed due to weather
Date :
Sun 30.07.2017
Type of event :
Hike, 2 days
Organized by :
Roger Starkie
Description :



 



 

Registration open for waiting list only

 



 

Yes, this is a two day hike from Sunday until Monday. The reason for this unusual choice of dates is that it is practically impossible to get a place in the Schiestlhaus (near the summit) on a Saturday night. So, you'll have to take Monday off work if you want to come!

The plan is that either the ascent or descent will be via the wonderful Aflenzer Starizen, but very stable weather is necessary for this.

The hike will only take place if the weather is reasonably good.
