Great view to Zugspitze and Schneefernerkopf!
I bivied at the alm below the Tuftlalm, saw a group of deer around sunset, and went up early in the morning via the Grüner Ups. It was snowing by the time I reached the summit.
Nice snowshoe hike, though the ridge walk from Uppsspitze was exciting due to a hurricane-style wind. Face half frozen! I was kind of crouching in the wind, with crampons and ice axe for security. Right after I got down a ways, the storm abated and the sun came out. Figures!
Nice loop from Ehrwald up to Daniel, Upsspitze and the lonely northwestern ridge to Hebertaljoch. Back to Grüne Ups and - after a cool beer at the Tuftalm, back to the car
7/May/2006: Stopped at Upsspitze (2.332m), because of ugly snow conditions on the ridge to Daniel. Perfect weather and nobody (except of birds) on the mountain. Great views into every direction.
31/Oct/2009: Great trip with lots of snow below Grüner Ups.
