Climbed to Ultener Hochwart and got lost in dense fog. Finally reached a ridge, which we decided must be the west ridge of Schöngrubspitze - which it was. Hiked to the big cairn on top and were rewarded with a few short glimpses to Hochwart. Returned westward and climbed Hochwart itself afterwards.
a very warm day in February provided fine firn snow in the southern flank of the mountain. The ski tour with start at the southern end of the Castrin/Hofmahdjoch tunnel of the road between Ulten and Proveis is rather short and very popular, but quite steep in the upper part.
