Ascent Trip Report

Topographic maps show a second, 0.5m higher spot 800m SW of what is commonly regarded as Hohe Kanzel's summit (591.8m). However, GPS readings we took at both locations suggest that the published height of the western peak (592.3m) may very well be overoptimistic. We reckon that the eastern peak is indeed Hohe Kanzel's true top.
