The first rain-free day in quite some time gave us the idea to walk the Jochberg differently. In 2016 a group of my DAV section (TAK) organized a tour over the Heckenbach. That sounded exciting and interesting. We wanted to repeat that, but we failed quite early because it was just too wet from the previous day and the stream had too much water.However, that was not a problem, because there was an alternative via the Grasalm and the Graseck. An old path that is hardly ever walked and was therefore neglected. Ticks (we counted over 70 in total) forced us to take regular breaks and old felled trees at the Grasalm created an obstacle course.On the summit ascent to the Graseck it became calmer and one is always amazed at the beautiful and not too easy mountain trails on such small pre-alpine peaks. A short "look into the country" break and another tick check let us linger briefly at the summit. Then we descended to the pass which led us over to the north-east climb of the Jochberg.It was then climbed quickly and there was a detailed break after less than 3 hours, along with 50 other summiteers (on a Tuesday!). Even more amazing was the crowd that came towards us on the descent to the Kesselberg Pass. We estimate about 150 people. Crazy.After a total of 5 hours we were back at the parking lot and drove back to Munich.
