Traverse of Watzmann

Right since I in 1982 for the first time saw Watzmann, the pride of Berchtesgaden, I had had the wish of climbing this beautiful mountain. But I had to wait twelve years before I got the opportunity to set my foot upon the mountain. In autumn 1994 I was on a weekend in Munich to visit my old climbing partner Christoph, and according to tradition, we also had to climb a mountain together. Watzmann was chosen, and during Saturday, with Christoph and his wife, we went up to Watzmannhaus, the starting point for the climb.
