I stopped the project transalp after half of the distance. I had very good conditions, besides sleeping arms no physically problems but I lost fun to go on through Swizzerland which I know very well already and which would be so expensive. I will spend the complete april again in the alps but with normal ski tours and no traverse any more. So stay tuned … updates will follow.

Thanks so far for all support: accompanying me, maintaining basecamp, repairing things, mentally support and comments from all of you!

I evaluated my gps files … some statistic data:

daily stage length

daily stage up hill meters

In total I went 1050 km distance and about 60500 m up and down.
