Moonlit Hechlstein Western Ridge


2021-09-18 Hechlstein Summit Cross The western ridge towards Hechlstein is a favorite of mine and I've enjoyed it during hot summer days, cold spring evenings with firn and during cool evenings close to sunset. Last week I added "moonlit" and "slightly-past-sunset" to my list 😁. I used to do a loop, but I really enjoy the scramble eastward towards the ridge and then the view west on the way back is at least as rewarding:

Bit past the golden hour, but the moon isn't too bad either 😉

Even though the way back is sort of slow, every time you lift your head you get rewarded:
