Sounds like an awesome day out! I'm yet to explore around Säntis, can always see it in the distance too. Autumn can be great when you get out of the fog :)
oh yeah, there is a rissifrutti equivalent here called Mueller Milchreis. I always feel a little embarrased when my supermarket trolley is half full of them
awesome run Larry. One for the ages.
Embarrassed cause you can't handle a full trolley of them?
Planning to head up there on Saturday - like the look of the forecast (+10 at 2000m!). I think I'll take the lazy way up the mountain itself (if only because I'm not good with heights) but looking forward to finding somewhere good for a run in the general vicinity.
Yeah we didn't climb saentis itself so not sure how steep or exposed it is. I'll be in St Gallen on sat arvo Blair, when are you heading off?
You can download any topographic map in switzerland (and print it if you can) for free, they seem to mark most of the walking tracks if you're looking for a loop.
Haha Shep - I found a recipe to make rice cream DIY (pretty simple obviously), thinking about going into the rice cream moonshine business...
Actually coming at it from the south side as I'll be catching up with a friend in Zurich later today, so will miss you.
(And the Swiss topo maps site is seriously awesome).
Has rice cream moonshine been decriminalised over there?
Didn't realise until I re-read this that you had climbed a different peak. The top part of the Santis looks reasonably exposed and scrambly in spots (though not remotely technical). There's a duathlon which involves riding from Urnasch to the bottom of the cable car then running the rest - winning times for this seemed to be mostly around 1.30 (low 30s for the ride and high 50s for the run).
