Great weather .. fortunately!  Sucess!

Reading and hearing about the Mainzer Höhenweg, I reckoned that it might not be a good idea to do that solo. Perhaps next year, because at the Rüsselsheimerhütte, I heard that the roule will be improved by then. As it stands now, crossing the glaciers solo isn't a problem, but the short via ferrata sections that make some of the difficult parts easy end up 6m above the glacier, thanks to global warming.

So, I decided to take the longer but easier way from the Rüsselsheimerhütte to the Braunschweigerhütte: over the Weissmaurachjoch down into the Pollestal, then hike up along the Pollesbach. Further south, I decided to follow the last section of the (old) Mainzer Höhenweg, so, from the Pollestal I worked my way up to the Nörliche Pollesjoch.

Getting up the Nordliche Polleskogel from there was eay, but I passed on its higher southern twin. Thanks to some deep snow, which hid the route markers, an already long day got a bit longer still, and I finally arrived at the hut by 9 o'clock.
