Inner Fürberg (aka Gross Fürberg) is a peak which is rather easy to hike to, but it still offers a great view to the glacier and the highest peaks in the Glärnisch massif.

I started off at 7:15 in the morning from Plätz, bringing my mountain bike along. The forest road to Chäseren is quite steep in many places, so I mostly walked the bike. At the end of the road I left the bike behind and continued on foot. Luckily, in the morning most of the route was still in the shade, and I could keep a good pace up to the Glärnisch mountain lodge. Next, I continued up the marked trail until elevation 2200 m. Just after the steeper part of the trail, I headed straight up the small valley called Steintäli. There it's probably best to stay on the right hand side, where there is a path or at least path traces. But I didn't really do that.

Further up I had to ascend across a large area with limestone. The stones often have really sharp edges, and for a while I actually wore my gloves for protection.

The summit book at Inner Fürberg is actually 20 years old. It was placed there in 1998, and is about two thirds full. So I would say it may last for another 10 years.

The view from the summit was great! The view towards the glacier is even better 200 m further to the east, where I enjoyed my lunch break.

For the descent, I generally went the same way, except I skipped the limestone area:-)

Please see attached GPS track for more details on the route.
