Itinerary description

First hike in the Alps of that year, it was also the most technical.
Following the trail I had downloaded on the gps at the end we got off track and had to negotiate steep slopes partly on scree. Definitely not something suitable for the normal hiker.
The view at the summit was partly occluded by clouds.

On the way down we also cut through slopes and met with herds of horses and cows.
Passing a few lakes we looped back to the car.
