The weather in March will probably not be able to beat the weather of Monday: The morning will be sunny, clear and rather chilly. Already, the sunlight has the same intensity as in mid September and it will therefore be pleasantly mild for the season.
This bright weather will last for another few days. There will be a few occasional clouds, but all in all the sun will dominate the sky and produce mild temperatures.

Pass the rock face to enter the trail to Niederreichscharte in the west. Before reaching Niederreichscharte after 3.5 h you will have to get over some rocks and a snow field.
