With AnyB loosing his baffle he decided to hop onto the Motorway so as not to attract to much attention with the local police while we took a bit of the scenic route.
So J and I arrived in Trieben,Austria in the Valley and had some coffee and a bite to eat before we attempted the climb up to the Hut

Pretty place,this Austria

Once we reached the Ski lift it was time for the Snow chains.

AndyB borrowed a chain for his rear tyre,J had some home made snow claws and i managed to pick up some chains from various places.
Unfortunatly AndyB did not make it up the Hill and decided to go home.
J's snowclaws did one after the other snap right down the middle which meant he was struggling,A LOT.
Mine worked perfect but the ride up was still scary as the steepness of the hill and the tight hairpin bends where scary
J told me to go ahead as he was playing with his snowclaws,which i did

I got gopro footage of the ride up just need to play with it a bit first

A pic of the road

and the view on top

So i put up my tent and was waiting for J,asking every bike coming up the hill if they seen a ugly welshman.
Eventually i decided to go and rescue him and give him my spare claws and chains
