Adventures must be done!

Federispitz Tramp (5-6 June 2010)

We started as a team of 6 from Schaenis (418m asl) and tramped up to Federispitz (1865m asl).
It provided an excellent view over the low lands on one side and glimpses of the higher mountains of the Alps.

Enjoying the view over Walensee.

After a team split, Desiree, Zbynek, Andreas and myself continued along some rather rarely traveled route towards Untere Chaesere where we spotted a pretty good bivvy ground, although heavily populated by slugs! It was the first time Desiree and Zby used their new tarp, an almost identical twin of mine, just a bit lighter in colour.

Zby cooling down ...

Tarping ...

Our camp in the morning.
