Osuwangyo traverse

Monday, April 22nd, 2019

On Easter Monday we went for a nice and relaxed, medium distance hike on Mount Osuwangyo. We ascended the standard trail to the summit and then descended the very steep southern side or Mount Osuwangyo to a great view point where we had a short breakfast break.

From there it was just another 30 minutes of easy descending and then back on trail to the bus.
Really a great group and we proved that you can exercise AND relax at the same time.
Total hiking duration was about 5.5 hours ( including breaks ) and we hiked for about 12 km.

Hackbraten II

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

We went back into the cliff. And it really feels like a second home now. If only the approach was a bit less brutal.

Climbed the second pitch, had coffee on Hackbraten ledge and BBQ at the campsite. Clearly, we gain weight on these expeditions.

Then we realized that there is a third and even a fourth pitch.

We are coming back. 🙂

Krobo Extreme

Sunday, April 07thh, 2019

Krobo Extreme is always an adventure. One of the really great hikes we have in the program.

We ascend very steep and scramble around the main pillar of Krobo westface into Kotokas cave.  THen we continue to the summit where we had a nice BBQ this time.

From there we continue on the standard trail and then descend through the “magic forest” which as usual is exhausting but also exiting.
