Tons of snow on the ascent. Took the classic route from Neuberg. Superb weather, breathtaking veiws.
From Lohmgraben, alone. Stormy wind and -7 Celsius on the summit. 20-50 cm fresh snow on the plateau

very cold, nice
Tried the Kleinbodengraben with ski, as the route is listed in the literature. No luck: traversing steep forest, many rocks under the snow, badly marked, no downhill possible. Better in the summer.
Started alone, as no friend was available. Light snowfall in the morning ceased soon and the sun came. Not knowing the route well, I did my own track, realising only near the peak, that a track was just 100m right of me.
I joined a small group on Waxeneck and went over to Donnerwand. Good weather, excellent powder (could be more, but hey! it's december!), spectacular views.
