The sheer size of this magnificent wall is truly mind blowing. It raises more than 1000 m from the glacier in the bottom to the edge of the plateau in the top.
We slept one night (with massive headaches as a result of the altitude) with this scenery, and in the middle of the night, we were awakened by an avalanche thundering down the wall. Just a reminder never to be safe in the mountains - climbers have to ascend this wall to summit the nearby Ismoil Somoni (7,495 m)
Reither Spitze ⛰ in Seefeld
Stairway to heaven 🤗 Some climbs are a bit more challenging than others - but the sunshine, views and the feeling when you reach the summit are priceless! 💪🏻 Time to enjoy the last hikes of the season before the snow arrives 🍂❄

Always a great day with you!
No half-heartedness and no worldly fear must turn us aside from following the light unflinchingly. --J.R.R. Tolkien (Letters to Edith)
It's that time of year when Mojave Tarantulas are out hiking in the desert. Be mindful of them crossing trails. There's the wife helping one cross the road. She really should have lost at least a finger by now.
I’ve been hiking in Maine for like 2 months. I miss the whites.
