I know, I know, I’m becoming a bit of a climbing freak, but it’s so much fun, great exercise and really rewarding. I think I might be addicted! This week I climbed up Hoch Golling, which is the highest mountain in Austria’s Lungau region – about an hour south of Salzburg.
I don’t want to blow my own trumpet but it was pretty hard and I think I might be the first ever ‘English lady’ to conquer the summit. At 2,862 metres, Hoch Golling is Lungau’s highest peak.
The highest mountain in the whole of Austria is Grossglockner (in German written as Großglockner). It’s a massive 3,782 metres tall! My climbing skills have probably got a way to go before I take that one on…!
