At the Summit of Grossvenediger

In April 2017, I traveled to Austria to climb its forth highest mountain, Großvenediger, with the DAV Summit Club.

A Rough Start

Have a Pleasant Flight
I look down at my feet. The sandwich I just bought in the Salzburg train station is on the floor split in half like a butterfly pinned to an exhibit canvas. With two minutes to go before my train departs, I grab the top and bottom half of the roll and carefully scoop up the cheese from the sticky ground.

Who? What? Where?

Temporarily Closed due to Vacation
I hear my mobile phone ring and quickly reach for my backpack. Unzipping the top compartment to the bag, I fumble around with my phone trying to swipe the display and answer it without removing my gloves.
