Augstenberg 'summit' cross (2359m), at the wrong place...
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The 'summit' cross on the Augstenberg is not on the summit. Not even close, in fact, as the true summit is about 250 m to the south. The cross is at 2359m, the true summit is 2365m, located at coordinates 47.0802°N / 9.6113°E.
If the cross would be on the true summit, it would not be visible from the Malbun valley below, so I guess that's why it's located on the edge of the summit plateau instead. But, strangely enough, the hiking trail passes by the true summit too, by only a mere couple of meters. Sure, the summit is a bit uneven, but you can still easily walk up it.
