The Alps - 1980

First trip to the Alps

The aim was to visit as many areas as possible to check out places to climb in later years.
We drove down in a friends landrover

Taken in Tasch before our attempt.
We were hit by a storm during our attempt with simultaneous lightning and thunder. Our (Aschenbrenner) axes were 'zinging' with each lightning stroke
