comment How are backpacking conditions at Yosemite in April?
I hiked to Rancheria Falls and back once in April. It was still quite cold, but you could always find the trail and didn't have to wade through snow or things like this. I guess the Hetch Hetchy area would be the place to go for early birds.

@Roflcoptr Also, if you're into the computers and map thing bizniz, have you heard of komoot? They do have a really nice tour planning/mapping application. Never used it for the alps yet though.

@Roflcoptr I never made any bad experiences with Alpenvereinsangaben so I just blindly stick to them. I hiked the eastern part of the Verwall last year and times were up to the minute for me.

I have made the experience that km figures are completely useless in the alps. There are so many factors like altitude gain and terrain that there is no way to estimate walking time without actually walking it once. The time estimates the alpine club gives are pretty good though, I'd consider myself a semi-fast hikers and I'm almost always 'on time'. Have you checked the huts' websites, they will have walking times to all adjacent huts.
