Ascent Trip Report

From the village of Rickenbach I drove a narrow metalled road to the farm buildings of Feldemoss where it was possible to park out of the way on a grassy verge. A track of gradually deteriorating quality led directly to the summit, which was topped by a fenced compound containing a tall communications tower, although the ground outside the fence seemed equally high if not slightly higher. There was some snow on the ground in places and the weather was beautiful (+4C, sunny if slightly hazy). The summit has no view due to the forest but there are points on the track where you can see south towards the Alps. NOt as good as from the Stierenberg but not bad.
