Ascent Trip Report

Ascent from Maria's Land in Rohrbach im Graben. Very hot day. Trail so far good and by and large easy to find - except just above Ternitzer Hütte up to the rails - no major problem but trail far less clear than throughout the rest - in one part even disappearing under grass and plenty of flowers. Reaching the summit I realised that on the other side the forecasted thunderstorms had almost fully developped and were about to reach Schneeberg - so I stayed like 3 minutes at the summit and rushed back to the upper station of the cog wheel train (Blizzards left and right of us - some tourists seemed to enjoy what they called "lightning show" - amazing). Just when the first big rain drops turned into torrential rains I reached the station and took the train down to Puchberg where hail had turned the summer gardens into fields for snowball battles...
