Exploring new routes in a sheer rockface, climbing as many mountains as possible, enjoying the thrill of a high-speed descent – there are lots of ways to do Tirol. Visitors keen to go back to the roots and discover the region like the early alpine pioneers hundreds of years ago should have a go at mountaineering "by fair means". This means no cable cars, gondolas or ski lifts to shorten the approach – just 100% leg power. Our team set off to climb the Watzespitze, the highest peak on the Kaunergrat ridge, by fair means. Let's see how they got on.

As varied as the rich flora and fauna of Tirol, it can be interesting to consider the various inclinations and preferences that make us all unique, especially outdoorsmen. People approach hiking differently and people hike for all manner of different reasons, but I have started to notice some broad groups that account for most hiking styles. There are those seeking solitude and there are those who want to push the limits. There are those who want to capture pictures of that perfect moment and there are those who want nothing more than enjoying delectable dishes served on quaint on-mountain eateries. Naturally, there are many exceptions but I’ve found these seem to capture most hikers I’ve come across. What do you think?
