Also Tölzer mountain wachtler – are mentioned in the book, both as a rescuer and as victim. The Following are three of the many inserts.
danger of fire in dead salvage
year of the war 1944: gram, Inger is on call in the Eng. In the North wall of the Eiskarlspitze a rope team had an accident. Three soldiers took advantage of a short leave for a climbing tour. At the top of the wall is made from stone impact. He is immediately dead. The comrades have to let him back.
Da gram, Inger, the Route is unknown, is he calling the Tölzer mountain rescue. Michl Schmid hammer is immediately ready to ride. He knows there. As you ascend the East ridge to the summit, you will be captured suddenly of the "terror": A "bloodcurdling, rapidly growing noise: a crowd of probably two hundred American bombers flew over us in the direction of Munich." The bomb squadron to be accompanied by hunters: "If it should come up, there would be no Escape." They hide behind rocks, up, the nightmare is over, but do you know what is happening now in the city.
From the summit you then descend to the dead, the horribly disfigured. Pack him up and take him in the Abseilsitz, then you have to beat hook to hook, with the heavy body in many stages over the 350-Meter-high wall to abseil. On the horizon you can see the explosion of lightning, the smoke and pillars of fire about Munich.
At the last Rappel it happens: "As Michl the hook is loaded, we saw with horror that he was moving, and a jolt flew out of his Crack to the bottom fast." Fractions of seconds decide about life and death: gram, Inger caught Michl reflex with a rapid grip and kept him from falling. Pale is the third mate, who had beaten the hook. You build a new Rappel and slide on the rope to secure Kar down. You had a guardian angel.

September 1955: The young Tölzer mountain wachtler Walter Gerg (25) from Greiling and Mittenwald comrade Josef Biller, a rise in dubious weather in the extremely heavy direct "Auckenthaler Route" (difficulty 6) of the laliderer wall. They are excellent climbers and confident to reach in time the bivouac on the summit. In the upper part of wall it hits, a sudden change of weather with full force. Snow and ice will make a come impossible. The host of the Falken hut hears her cries for help and alerted the mountain rescue.
