Ascent Type:Successful Summit Attained
    Elevation:7753 ft / 2363 m

Ascent Trip Report

2h30 circuit from Bürglhütte, some cabling once past cross, to protect exposed sections of ridge and initial descent. West summit looked higher to me by maybe 2m, didn't have hand level to confirm. Reached by short easy scramble from main trail.

Bürglhütte is customer parking, so be prepared to eat/drink while there. I parked 1km down road as an excavator was trimming the unpaved road and only allowing vehicles down, not up, late PM

Lovely late pm circuit of both tops, after a morning ascent of Polinik. Good choice as higher peaks in cloud.
