Ascent Trip Report

I parked at ther farm of Peierhof (Peyerhof) on M├╝swangerstrasse, and headed quickly between the farm buildings towards the forest, on a part paved road covered in alternative cowshit and ice (not a pleasant combination). After entering the forest, the road turned to dirt, then became snow covered. At a crossroads, the summit of Lindenberg was signposted, and at the "top" (flat summit area), there was a cross, little shrine complete with candle burning in a lantern, and even a Swiss Alpine Club summit book in the usual metal can, which I very surprised to see outside of the high summits in the Alps - somebody must consider this an important peak. I considered it a nice walk in the forest on a cold sunny winter's day.
