Just before 2009 we had a window of clear weather that lasted about two weeks - it basically spanned from 2008 to 2009. It was freezing cold and the sky was clear, at least on the top of the mountains it was.
A seven hours hike brought us to the hunting cabin, up in Dragus Ridge - Fagaras Mountains, where we had our base camp. From there we hiked up on the ridge and took photos of the beautiful landscape.
This year the weather wasn't too great and thus we didn't have the opportunity to go there. Instead of snow and frost we only had rain and mild temperatures...
Here is a short list of useful things one should have when mountaineering in wintertime:
- waterproof winter boots
- vacuum flask with hot tea
- mini stove (Primus)
- snowshoes or cross country skis
- 4 season sleeping bag (filled with down or hollow fiber)
- wind and waterproof pants and jacket
- telescopic trekking poles
- ice axe
Looking forward for some snow. Cheers!
