Berliner Höhenweg day five: Berliner Hütte to Griezer Hütte

This was the toughest day.  Threatening weather meant an early start.  The climb to the pass was not too demanding, but we passed the beautiful, mirror-like Schwarz See.

The black clouds beyond the pass meant we should not wait at the top.  So I started my descent down the cliff face holding the cable. 

The rain started.

It was a steeper via ferrate than the previous day.  The rain made the cable cold and wet, and my fingers started to get numb.  I was scared.

My new-found friends, two families with four teenage girls, found it a giggle. 

So what a wimp am I? 

This hut was built by the Griezer section of the German Alpine Club.  A man working there played accordion in the evening.
