Mannheimer Hutte to Totalphutte
July 24, 2007 Tuesday morning, we got up at 7:00a to clear skies and had a quick breakfast before setting out for the Lindauer Hutte. We left at 7:50a and walked down the gravel slope to the edge of the glacier. From here we headed off across the glacier southeast toward a rounded ridge and then on to Schesaplana Sattel (2739m – 8986ft) a col just to the west of Schesaplana (2965m – 9728ft) the dominant peak in the area. We traversed around the south side of Schesaplana on scree ledges and cables to a col at 2837m – 9308ft then descending down steep slopes and ledges to Totalp Hutte (2381m – 7812ft) (11:00a). Al was really suffering from the flu so we decided to stay here for the night and go on to Lindaur Hutte in the morning. We had some thunder and rain but the weather was supposed to be improving.
