Very nice hike. It was the first time I saw an ibex less than 5 meters from me. Still can't beleive what I saw this day :)
nice alpine hike from Altmann on the Lysengrat to Säntis
Hiked up the Säntis instead of taking the cable car (which is used by 99 % of the people on the summit). A nice hike with fresh snow above 2200 meters. Great summitview!
A nice alpine hike. I'm glad bad weather near Zürich didn't deter me, since the weather was fine while I was there. This was my third trip to the gipfel. Maybe next time I'll bring the kids.
On a wet and stormy day I made the approach via Lysenkamm, coming from Rotsteinpass. The weather cleared by reaching the summit and the day became just great.
Beautiful tour to the Säntis 2502m
photos are all here: Link to Säntis 2502m
Approached from Urnasch, climbed over the Kroneberg to Leman, then went to Schafler and summitted amid the throngs around noon.
Summer 1984 – Lisengrat
A fine hiking trip with a group from the alpine club. We started at Hoher Kasten cablecar and walked all along the ridge of the massif to Rotsteinpass, climbed Lisengrat route and slept on the summit hotel. Continued the route the next day back to the northern valleys
February 14th 1998
Famous ski trip: took the cablecar from Schwägalp to the summit, skied down to the north, climed Rotsteinpass and akied down to the Toggenburg valley.
I always like seeing this mountain from the surrounding area. It looks so cool with its big tower on top. I just rode the aerial tramway to the top, but it is really fun to hike around the summit.
This time together with Edda it was my 12th summiting of Saentis. Never saw so much snow up there in summer time. And we actually saw and heard a number of avalanches coming down the slopes of the opposite ridge. We took the normal route from Wasserauen (868m) via Meglisalp (1517m) to the top (2502m). Saentis was my first more "serious" mountain, which I summited the first time in 1993.
Born in Tuttlingen in the south of germany we visited the Alpstein region several times. Great mountains, very good chees, great climbing in the whole Säntis / Alpstein area.
