Last day of a wonderful vacation Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2011
I had to leave Oberstdorf on Feb 2nd 2011. Instead of leaving in the morning I took the cable-car to Nebelhorn and spent two hours up there exploring the wonderful views. Returned to the Höfatsblick station and hiked both winter hiking paths. Finally found myself on Zeigersattel and headed up to Zeiger's south summit. Traversed the corniced ridge to the main summit where I had lunch. Wonderful views on a perfect winter day.
Had a team building event underneath the Zeiger west slopes, during which I climbed to Zeigersattel and Hüttenkopf. In the afternoon, now on my own, explored the area around the Höfatsblick cable car station. Returned to Zeigersattel and headed up to the Zeiger south summit.
