Ascent Trip Report

The third of 3 short ascents on a travelling day where I had a couple of hours spare. Unfortunately a few traffic delays meant that it was 15 minutes after sunset when I reached the substantial car park near the summit. However, the trail up was as clear as could be, and I just had enough light not to need my head torch. The highest ground is overbuilt with a substantial summit restaurant (closed in winter), and the views of the many lights of the villages of the Pfalzer Weinstrasse were interesting in the half dark.
