Scenes from the Road: NordKetten, Austria Edition

The mountains outside Innsbruck got to be special. They played host to the 1964 and 1976 Olympic Games.

After climbing a mountain, the other side might offer a different view. Here, I'm focused on all the soft snow and steep angles I'm going to have to navigate to make it back home from this mountain tour. Somewhere in my relatively near future I would be really wishing I had some crampons and an ice axe.

Klettering along the top of the NordKetten's north face.

Surveying the scene, getting some sun. Yeah, not too bad a way to spend the day.
