A Tale of Two Knots

...Herwig´s many pieces of sound advice will stay with me, I hope making me a saver more competent climber. Here are some of his mantras.

"Take out everything that´s not necessary."

"Be able to see clearely what every piece of equipment is doing."

"Keep your screw gates well and truly screwed."

And: "It´s a good idea not to fall on an alpine tour."...

...The course definetely exceeded our expectaions and, in managment speak, met our objectives. I´d like to thank Allan Hartley for encouraging me to go on the course and Thee AAC UK for the grant, also our thanks to Gabi and her team and Herwig Tobias for giving us such an excellent experience in Austria.

So I´ll end with another piece of advice from Herwig: "sometimes in life, you´ve just got to go for it!"

On the approach through the Pitztal and the walk up to Braunschweigerhütte we find classic routes, well known mountains like the Ötztaler Wildspitze – at 3768m the highest peak in Northern Tyrol. This traditional mountain hut (2758m) has provided accommodation and a base for alpinists since 1892. Landlady Zilli and her team will spoil us with excellent food and a friendly service. Being based at the hut should guarantee optimal courses without time consuming distances to the training grounds. The wonderful mountain scenery of the Ötztaler Alpen whets the appetite for more.

Originally a stronghold of the Munich and Kufstein climbing schools, alpine history was written in the Wilder Kaiser. For 100 years the sport of climbing has developed on rocks like Totenkirchl, Fleischbank and Predigtstuhl.
It was here where Hans Dülfer created new climbing styles and techniques, Helmut Kien and Reinhard Karl opened the first route rated VIIº with Pumprisse, and it was on Fleischbank where Stefan Glowacz climbed “des Kaisers neue Kleider” (X+) the most difficult route up to now.
