We joked that if a run was not worthy of the book, we would give it a "gong", meaning: this run is VOID, it's not good and not going in. We were pretty close to giving the gong when we suddenly hit our stride on some beautiful singletrack along the Horenfelliboden. And from there, things got good. Really good...
Runners be warned, this route does have a section with exposure, and several very steep ladders with lots of air beneath your feet. If you have issues with exposure or heights, this may be a run to skip.
