The northern slopes of the Brienzer Rothorn had snow (almost) to Sörenberg, but the southern slopes had a general lack of snow. We walked until 1700 m without snow shoes. In these lower parts we saw a gemse. It was very mild weather with a lot of sun shine, so altogether not really winter conditions . On the ridge towards Nünalpstock we started to walk with snow shoes. The final ascent to Nünalpstock was very steep, 35 degrees over 50 height meters. In addition, the snow was very wet here. The continued way along the ridge (Haldimattstock, Looegg, Bärenturm) was pleasant with better, but very irregular snow conditions. The direct descent from Sattelpass through open parts in the woods had a lot of snow, so that we could wear the snow shoes almost to 1300 m.
