Ascent Trip Report

The most challenging part is driving to the trailhead on a steep and narrow 11km winding road with hardly any passing places. I was lucky and met no other vehicles either way. Road starts at N46.31889 E13.08868 and trailhead is at N46.33318 E13.10297. The trail is waymarked and largely consists of walking through a beech forest and avoiding sinkholes. The summit is a forest of comms masts. There is a trigpoint but hard to tell if it is at the highest point. I got caught in a heavy thunderstorm on the way back through the beech trees. The storm caused a rockfall on the descent road which I had to clear out of the way.
