Litnisschrofen 2068m, Austria 30/6 2018
Krinnenspitze 2000m

Today we choose to trek "at home", meaning we use the cableway from
Nessewängle, (where we rent a flat) to 1500m, below Krinnenspitze
There are several routes to the summit. We use the so called Gamsbocksteig, the steepest path.

We gain altitude fast, even if we are moving slowly because of warm weather.
The last section to the summit is the steepest
There are sections secured with chains. But the fact that I climbed them with my camera in one hand without ever touching the chains, suggest that it's really not that difficult.

The summit of Krinnenspitze, 2000m. We get there after a little more than one hour Tannheimer Tal is a beautiful area, even if the mountains aren't that high. Here is
Haldensee down in the valley.

Leilachspitze 2274m to the left, Hochvogel 2593m far away almost in the middle.
To the right and closer is our next target, 
Litnisschrofen 2069m
Descending from Krinnenspitze. Far below, on1726m is the hut Gräner Ödenalpe. Since there was no cappuccino there, I won't show any more pictures of it.

Instead, we rapidly move up the 300 altitude meters towards the summit of Litnisschrofen. The final section is via ferrata, but where climbing equipment isn't necessary. Still, this is no summit for beginners. Some experience of climbing, with no vertigo is advicable.

Sören has found a place with a view. A look at Leilachspitze 2274m.

And here's Sulzspitze 2084m in the middle of the picture. It's accessable if you use the cableway from Tannheim.
