Climbing Schober mountain was my first formal climbing. i wore the new hiking shoes and the new outdoor special shirt. The feeling was quite good.
As you can see most of Schober is covered by forest, but the way up still is offering some lovely views...
...such as here, where one can see lake Fuschlsee.
View down from about half way to the top.
The higher up the more difficult the route gets when climbing Schober. Fortunately they put up a steel rope at the most difficult parts, so making it safer to climb the last meters.
Though this has been my very first time to go such a difficult ("black") route, I could do fine and climb to the very top without any help.
From this point it are only a few more steps to the peak of mountain Schober. To the upper right one can see lake Fuschlsee again.
Another lake on the other side of the mountain.
Actually from Schober one can see as many as 7 different lakes when the air is clear.
Me and my honey in front of Dachstein, the highest mountain of Upper Austria, which you can see to the far back.
My naughty honey climbing the absolutely highest point of the mountain, haha.
Nearly every higher Austrian mountain got a cross on top.
So of course one has to take a picture at the cross to prove that one has climbed the mountain.
Lake Wolfgangsee to the left and Mountain Dachstein to the far right.
My honey likes this picture very much.
Now we use it as the wallpaper for our computer.
Going down again this mountain is far from easy!
Actually Schober has two peaks.
These pictures have been taken at the second peak
It was my first time to use the walking sticks, really very useful.
Down again, phew!
