A nice hike to Druesberg (2282 m) and Forstberg (2215 m) from Weglosen.

I followed the blue/white marked trail from Weglosen in direction of Druesberg. After visiting the summit of Druesberg, I descended to Druesberglücke, and continued across some snowfields and up to Forstberg. Next, I descended towards Klein Sternen, where I took the chairlift down to Seebli, and then the cable car back down to Weglosen.

Times (not including breaks):
Weglosen - Druesberg: 3 h
Druesberg - Forstberg: 45 min
Forstberg - Klein Sternen: 1 h 30 min

Difficulties:
Leiteren is basically a ladder you need to climb up as described by others.
One section of the ascent to Druesberg at about 2160 m elevation is quite steep, but secured with chains.
At the time of my hike, I had to cross some snowfields between Druesberg and Forstberg.
One section of the descent from Forstberg at about 2000 m elevation is quite steep, but also secured with chains.
