Ascent Trip Report

I headed for the Rhein/Rhine and met it at its narrowest point at the Loreley rock (194m) on the eastern bank near St. Goarshausen. And would you believe it, is part of yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Upper Middle Rhine Valley.

To make it a proper walk (between showers) I walked down to the Rhine and found one of the Loreley statues then came back up to the summit to find the other one.
