Lots of luck or unpredictable bad luck?
With @m_artules I gave it one more try to do the traverse from Ortler - Zebru - Gran Zebru in winterconditions. We startet from the car at 4am and climbed Ortler via the ne face (Schückrinne) and reached the summit of Ortler at 7.30. We continued downclimbing the Hochjochridge to the Zebru.
At the very last part before the col on very easy terrain a huge cornice (about 10m high) broke on a length of 25m, 6m inside the slope where we were walking. Martin reached safe buttom with a jump, I just reached the edge of the slope, just hanging on my arms and feet in the air. Martin pulled my arm and helped me back on safe ground.
Without many words, we continued walking down to the col to take a break and to discuss if we go on or down, it was 9.30 in the morning, so plenty of time to go on. But after this, it was an easy decision.
We tried to realize what happened, what mistake we made. We were walking always minimum 4-5m inside the slope, so how could this happen? Wrong place at the wrong time? Luck that we survived or bad luck that it broke even if we walked 5m away from the cornice?
It‘s not the mountain that made a mistake, they are just there, it‘s always us.
After the tragedy of Hansjörg, David and Jess this week and this experience today, you start to think if it‘s right or not what we are doing. But it‘s our passion, it gives us so much, we won‘t live a happy life without mountaineering. There will always be a risk in the mountains, the only thing we can do is to think of it all the time and to learn.
Happy eastern and stay safe ✌️
