Ascent Trip Report

Started 25/08/2013 at 9.45 at Skistadion Partenkirchen, ascent via Partnach Alm, Bockhütte, Reintalangerhütte, Knorrhütte to Zugspitzplatt where I arrived at 15.30. Due to snow and fog I was unable to find the trail to the summit and decided to descend 500+ meters back to Knorrhütte, where I spent the night. The next morning I started at 8.00 and made it to the summit at 10:30, visibility was still bad but I was able to find the trail this time.
