Route description: This stage starts at the Nördlinger Hütte mountain hut and initially heads east. The trail then turns north and passes below the eastern rock faces of Reither Spitze mountain before heading east once more to the Ursprungsattel ridge (2,087 m). From there, do not continue towards the Freiungstürme mountains. Instead, head north-east and follow the trail that leads downhill. At the Breiter Sattel ridge (1,794 m), turn right to follow trail 74 towards the Eppzirler Scharte col. This trail takes you over a large scree field on the Kuhljoch and then winds its way up to the Eppzirler Scharte (2,102 m). From there, the route leads down the lime gravel-filled Höllkar corrie for around 200 vertical metres (trail 212) before following the gentle undulations of trail 211/212 to the Solsteinhaus mountain hut.

Forecast

A weak ridge of high pressure will bring us a rather nice day in the middle of this long-lasting period of bad weather.

It will be clear to cloudy. With the air washed clean by the rain of the last few days, the sun will be even more intense.

Tendency

At this point, we would prefer to forecast that high pressure will persist, but unfortunately this is not the case: The next area of low pressure will approach causing showers.
