Rond om Tegersche – #Hiking in #Switzerland under the Säntis #Mountain

We got finally a little bit of summer here in West-Switzerland (Ostschweiz). Perfect weather to go back hiking around the house. We took the car and drive nearby to Degersheim… and we got lost. Then we decided to park and take the first hiking route.. and we end up in a light but interesting walk around the hills: Rond om Tegersche.

  • Distance 9.6 km
  • Altitude gap: 390m
  • Time: 3 Hours (we completed in 2.5 with launch pause)

And then we finished our hike with some sweets… in Wolfensberg Restaurant

… why not?:)

#Eiger #Nordwand – The Beckoning Silence

Preview it on YouTube

Joe Simpson’s documentary of the 1936 Eiger mountain attempt based on his book of the same name. The book is very good too and well worth reading if you can find it.
Although i am not a climber myself i find these tales of those who do climb, fascinating and sometimes terrifying.

More than 60 people died attempting the North Face ascent by the years. Beside Heinrich Harrer success, the most famous one was the tragic story of the 1936 attempt of Toni Kurz on Wikipedia

It is worth to watch the movie “North Face” by Philip Stölzl

#Eiger #NorthFace Introduction

From Xtremesports4u

The most notorious mountain in the world – its iconic vertical mile of brittle limestone and ice, called the North Face, is the ultimate challenge for many a mountain climber. But even some of the greatest mountain climbers in the world are not prepared to take on the challenge. It’s not that it’s an impossibly difficult climb – at 1,800 m (13,000 ft) from base to the top of Face it’s not even that high. (The Eiger itself is 3970 m). It’s the commitment it entails. Once embarked on the ascent, that’s it … you need to keep going up.

#Kandinsky – Concerning the #spiritual in #art

Just found out that some truth are universal and can be shared with everyone about everything. Even a thought just about work of art, it fits any other aspect of life like family and even business.
Here is one from Kandinsky: as usual, the artist can use his inner sense as a shortcut to achieve what scientist and philosophers take years to reach.
