“… before I reached Sportgastein valley, there was another challenge to overcome, because the slope was a bit steeper here. After this endeavour I was well rewarded with the stunning view of the landscape. I soaked up the beauty of the natural environment with all my senses.
Once at my final destination, beautiful views over “Nassfeld” valley awaited me. I was located on 1,590 m above sea level, surrounded by the “Schareckgruppe” glaciers, and all the climbs were behind me. It was time to enjoy a refreshing beverage and recall the day’s adventures before heading downhill.”
