After climbing Monte Scorluzzo earlier that day I decided to hike (race) up Roetlzpitz as well. Maarten waited for me at the Dreisprachenspitze Hut/Restaurant.
Fine views from the summit towards the Ortler, our ultimate goal for the week.
I stopped at Stilfserjoch on my way back from a hiking week around San Caterina Valfurva and went up the Rötlspitze. The weather could have been a bit better, but it was a nice and quite simple hike all the same. Same as around the Pizzini and Casati huts, where I had been just before, one finds remains of World War I all over the place, particularly on the plateau behind Dreisprachenspitze, this time in form of hundreds and hundreds of empty and completely rusty food cans...
