Together with a friend from a flat part of this world, who is not very experienced in climbing mountains, I went up to the highest conglomerate mountain in Europe.

We started in Krummenau and wanted to take the cable car up to Wolzenalp, but unfortunately after the summer holidays they only run on weekends, so we had to walk up Wolzenalp and from there we hiked via Wannenspitzli, Bütz to the fixed rope route up to Speer.

The fixed rope route was almost too much for my friend, because it was his first real outdoor climbing, and, even though it is considered an easy fixed rope route, it is hard to look down if you’re not used to mountains - especially if it is the first real exposure to drops like this. However, we took it easy and he did very well. On top he was proud to have done it.

We were rewarded with an excellent view deep into the Swiss and Austrian Alps and probably some Italian mountains too; we could also see across Lake Konstanz to Germany. 

For the way down we decided to take the common and easy route to Amden via Oberchäseren and Durschlegi where we enjoyed another very nice view
