Today Maria and me activated the highest summit DL/BE-016 in the Benediktenwand group. At least two different summits were on the activation list, but we cancelled the second activation of the Achselköpfe, DL/BE-015 due to a heavy thunderstorm approaching from the West side. We tried to descent as accurate and as fast as we could, but the thunderstorm was a bit faster and the rain finally caught us close to the parking spot. The weather changed entirely unexpected, we had great sunny and chilly morning, but afternoon it started raining cats and dogs!
Anyway, it was a nice tour finalized with 40 QSO on 30m & 40m in CW within one hour OP time. Even though I only gathered 8 points, this activation was worth the effort - it was a great pleasure to HAM sitting in the sun and enjoying the pile-up and a great view from the Benediktenwand.
