Mountaineering Highlight (Segment)
Nicolet and Lada went mountaineering.

This tour is difficult to describe with words or pictures and was by far the most beautiful of the three tours. For a change, it started off comfortably with an alpine meadow. While the other two seemed to consist largely of ascents and descents in serpentines, this was varied from start to finish and crowned by overwhelming views. The ascent to the first summit, the Breitenberg, went steadily but not steeply upwards and opened up ever more beautiful views, interspersed with little scrambling, a lowland Tyrolean like me. What follows now is described in Bergzeit.de as “one of the most beautiful tours in the Upper Allgäu”. bergzeit.de/magazin/rotspitze-ueber-breitenberg-und-hohe-gaenge-bergtour-im-allgaeu, bergiegen.com/touren/klettersteig/hohe-gaenge vom first summit, the Breitenberg, you have an overwhelming view of what to expect, including the descending switchbacks on the descent. If the tightrope walk starts off comfortably with mountain pines, it soon becomes rough, karstic and above all scree. If you dare to take your eyes off the path, the breathtaking view will take your breath away in all directions. There are some unsecured scrambles, the steeper ones have ropes attached and they are consistently well marked with the white / blue symbol. The climb is rated as easy with Category B, which the locals overtaking us convincingly proved. The rock with many edges offered sufficient handles and steps to master them, the rope gave you additional security. As soon as there were no ropes, the mental strain was not insignificant for me. Lada was finally in her element and also stormed forward happily. The path between Heubatspitze and Rotspitze was again a comfortable path. At the Rotspitze it was then necessary to descend to 840 m from 2010 m. Here again a few scrambles awaited us, this time downhill, adorned with plenty of rubble and a small snow field. Now we could see the serpentines live and we didn't agree whether they had appeared steeper from the other side or not. Once on the first alpine meadow, we took a break and looked at what we had done today. Hard to believe.But we still had 7 km to the car in front of us, so we went on. Who would have thought that we would be happy about a wide, flat forest path? As a gentle end, we went a long way along the gurgling Ostrach.Although my Garmin watch showed about 100hm more than Komoot on every hike, it was still of the opinion that these should be regarded as "relaxation" and I finally had to do some sport again. Well then …
