Ascent Trip Report

2h30 up, 2h down, on trail, YDS2+ From N, toll road to Hochberghaus, €10 or spend at least €15, as we did on the sunny terrace on way down. 

Unpaved road to Sepp Huber Hütte (or marked trail a little rougher, we used it on ascent). Trail from higher hut, cables in 3 places, not particularly exposed but limestone very slippery when wet as it was from this morning's rain. Peak has many sink holes and large expanses of dwarf pine, more interesting than expected from map, good views with cloud clearing although tomorrow's target Grosser Priel still in cloud. 

Outcrop a few metres S of cross is highpoint, 47.80163° N, 13.99824° E, slender hole-marked trig block adjacent. Summit 300m to NNE about same height, a few boulders 15m into dense dwarf pine, 47.80382° N, 13.99967° E, visited on way down.

Farewell to Lee after another excellent week's bagging, Adrian and I will hopefully get up Priel and Grimming before heading back to UK
