Ascent Trip ReportWhat a wonderful Christmas day - super clear, warmer than necessary and a very relaxed hike up to Hinterstaufen/Zwiesel with a beautiful 360 degree view. Only in the upper part some hard snow on the trail - perfect occasion to try out my new very light mini-crampons (half way between snow chains for a car and real crampons but without need for crampon-proof boots) on the way down - test was passed :-).
Trail is easy though gaining altitude quickly - close to impossible to miss provided you watch out for "Zwiesel"-signs (and mit "Hinterstaufen". Parking might be a bit limited in summer...
