Ascent Trip Report

We started our hike arround 8:45 AM on Saturday morning. It was arround 0°C and we decided not to bring our snowshoes. I went over 100 meters on the trail, came back to the car and told everybody that our micro spikes would be ok for that day since it was supposed to get colder and to finish the day arround -10°C.

600 meters later; after falling a couple time in the wet snow, we decided that it was a bad decision. Felix, Martin and I went back to the car to grab the bunch of snowshoes for ourself and our respective girlfriends. A few minutes later, we were back and started our hike again.

We had a nice clear view once we reached the west end of the mountain above the treeline.

It was a great hike with our group of friends!
