A few days ago @jonasfunck and I climbed this incredibly pointy looking peak called Gabler (3263m) in a lesser known part of the Zillertal Alps. When we saw the mountain like this the evening before from the winter room at Zittauer Hut, we thought "Boy, this is gonna be challenging to climb with ice and snow on the ridge and ski boots on our feet". Then, when we arrived at the summit ridge the next morning it turned out to be just as sketchy and hard as we had thought 😅. Swipe through the shots to see what I mean. After some super exposed climbing along the ridge with just a bit of adrenalin in our system we eventually reached the 1m narrow summit. The views over Italy, Austria and Germany were awesome.
We were pretty happy when we managed to downclimb the whole thing again without problems and relaxed in the sun below the ridge for another hour. And then we got to ski down 1800m from the top to the car in the valley. Quite a day! at Gabler 3263m
