Zugspitze Climbing Notes

Jim Harris from UNITED STATES writes:

I wouldn't recommend climbing this beast. Take the cable car up a nearly 45 degree cable incline. What an amazingly scenic ride. Once you get to the top, you're rewarded with even better view of the Austrian Alps, and the best German food and beer anywhere!!

Check out my website to see some of the pics I took during my visit!
