Ascent Trip Report

I drove up from Mummelsee and market the car at a sign indicating Hornisgrinde. It was a blustery, very cloudy day. At the top the visibility was very limited. I thought I heard a low flying plane but when there was a bit of clearing I saw a very large wind turbine roaring in the breeze.
