After so many rainy days it was nice to go hiking in perfect weather again!

On this hike I basically followed the ridge from Crap la Pala via Piz Scalottas, Piz Danis, and Stätzer Horn to Fulenberg. The panoramic view to other nearby mountains was absolutely fantastic!

I spotted a few animals (a deer, numerous marmots, and a fox), and lots of nice flowers. Most amazing was my encounter with two fighting marmots who did not care about my presence but continued fighting even if I was only 3-4 meters away.

The maximum difficulty is T3.

Hiking distance: 21 km

Equipment: hiking sticks (mainly used for the descent).

Remark: The summit book (Gipfelbuch) at the summit of Stätzer Horn is all wet. The box where it resides is somehow broken and cannot be closed properly anymore.

Great hike! I've only done parts of the ridge but never the whole thing.

It's amazing how nasty marmots can be to each other... especially given how cute they look!

Thank you! It was indeed a nice hike.

Actually to cover the entire ridge I should have hiked to Fulhorn (2529 m) as well, and maybe even to Fulbergegg, but I did not have time for that.
