Ascent Trip Report

Parked at; 46.67221, 13.15776.

My path to the summit can be split to three segments:
1) Unpaved road and easy forest trail starting at 46.67523, 13.15353. Few places steep and slippery.
2) Slope trail to the ridge. At the fork 46.6825, 13.1519, where both trails leads to the summit I took longer R trail. And it was not so steep, normal. Bit of scrambling but all quite reasonable.
3) From 46.6874, 13.157 ridge walk. Few places exposed, however ridge is always wide enough to feel comfortable. Anyway, care to be taken.

Summit is marked with a cross. Not so much views because of clouds starting at ~1900m.

Descended same way. Anyway, very nice hike, impressive gully close to Alplspitz. Very interesting terrain. Few drops of rain just before I closed car doors. This time my personal weather predictions worked well. 2h20 up, 4h40 round trip
