Grüblspitze 2395m, Austria 8/4 2015

Today we visit Zillertal, taking the cableway to Eggalm at about 2000m. The route leading to Grüblspitze, seen to the left in this picture, follows the ski slopes at first. (larger picture)

 


Passing a ski lift at less than 2200m. (larger picture)

The last lift, a little higher up. (larger picture)
From here we follow the ridge, easy climbing the final 200 altitude meters. This is a technically simple mountain, no special problems anywhere. (larger picture)

And the views are beautiful, making this mountain worth while to climb. (larger picture)
