Near Stallenalm, Karwendel.


The group.


We are going to hike up the Wolfsklamm from Stans, then to the Stallenalm, from there it is not far anymore to the hashpoint. Probably we well be there around noon, not at 4pm because there is a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.



This! Was! Awesome! This was stunning and adventurous, relaxing and exhausting, fun and exciting: geohashing.

In the morning, Leslie and Eleanor arrived at 1-0's place just to find him sleeping in a hammock in the garden, a little hung over from last night's barbecue party. Nothing a coffee couldn't fix, and we were good to go. It was the second drag-along geohash for 1-0 and it turned out to be a lot more fun than the last one, which was basically a drive-by on the freeway. We had the perfect weather on our side, a little overcast and not too hot. It was a short trip to Stans were we left our car and started the hike, about 15 km in total and 1000 m difference in altitude.

St. Georgenberg

The first part of our route took us through the picturesque Wolfsklamm, a narrow and steep gorge carved into the mountain by a beautiful stream. This part of the route was totally worth the small admission fee we had to pay. Large parts of the path are built directly to the steep walls with wooden stairs and bridges. On the upper end of the Wolfsklamm lies St. Georgenberg-Fiecht Abbey, an old monastery built 1708. As soon as we left the slippery stairs of the Wolfsklamm behind us, 1-0 began to juggle while hiking and did not stop for about an hour.

From the Wolfsklamm it was about 6 km to the Stallenalm, mostly through the forest which made for pleasant temperatures. On our way to the hut we passed lazy cows lying in the sun.
This one involved a lot of climbing...
We tried to explain to them that the internet sent us, but they didn't seem to care about md5-sums and the Dow Jones. Arriving at Stallenalm it started to rain a little bit, but only enough to be a welcome refresher and with the sun still shining. Nevertheless we decided to go directly for the hashpoint and later return to the Stallenalm to have a break.

Finding the hashpoint was a little bit more difficult than expected. On the map it looked like it was only a few meters off a hiking trail, and it really was. But the terrain was very steep and almost inaccessible, with thick bushes, a lot of debris and even a snake guarding the hashpoint. Until we finally realized we were there it was not clear at all that we would be able to make it. You can get an impression how steep it was from the panorama picture above: I was taking this one with 1-0 standing just behind me (the feet) and EleanorAbernathy standing just in front of me (the hand). After taking some proof pictures and some more juggling near the hashpoint, we happily returned to the Stallenalm to have lunch.

For our way back we chose almost exactly the same route we came, only took a small detour around the Wolfsklamm at the end of our hike. On our way we played a few rounds of disc golf:
Playing disc golf
trying to hit a predefined target with a flying disc with as few throws as possible, a fun game! Finally we arrived at the car, and upon our return to Innsbruck we concluded a very successful geohashing expedition with ice cream.
