Thursday Reuterwanne Backway

First Thursday tour after three weeks, me being stuck in college for two and a load of water rescue stuff the next. Anyway, setting off with complete opposite conditions to the week before. Last week 35°C. This week under 5°C at the top of the mountains. Weird!
After we had all met at the gym, Group 1 and Group 2 split up in different directions. Whilst Group 2 was heading up past Maria Trost, Group 1 went towards the Haslacher Alm. After a long climb, with Heidi and Moni getting of some layers of clothes at the bottom, we were on our way towards the Buronhütte. On the way I mentioned to Moni we would be coming down here again, so she volunteered to wait for us and look after the cow herd. Reaching the Buronhütte we put on long clothes. Lucky we did, as Moni had a crash and skidded along gravel on her elbow. She was a bit shaken but otherwise fine, the clothes were a bit ripped thought.
Past Wertach and along the Wertach to Jungholz where we started a long climb up to the Obere Reuterwanne. We even had some glimpses of sun hear and there. Reaching the top it was back downhill, past the Haslacher Alm, with Sepp reaching a top speed of 88km/h. We startled some dog owner and in return the dogs startled us.
Back along the main road to the Bistro for a warm up drink and meeting two old friends from last years Breitnberg tour.
