Today Eric headed out from Rifugio Fanes to Rifugio Lagazuoi at 9 a.m. He said this would be one of the, if not the, most intense hiking day. I have provided a link below to an instagram site where you can get a feel of how much on top of the world this location seems.
If you google “rifugio lagazuoi” you can also find a webcam from that location. While not snowing today, there is still some snow on the balcony of the rifugio. It seems to update every 10 minutes or so. I keep checking it to see if I can see him; that would be funny. I know he is alive and moving because I can tell from his satellite communicator. Below the instagram is a screen shot of his movements today.
The steeper the climb, the closer together the blue dots. There is a set amount of time between each dot which is when the satellite takes a read off of his communicator. When this reading was taken he still had a steep climb to go to get to the rifugio.
