Afternoon hike to Gross Aubrig. Yesterday while biking at Wägitalersee, I saw that there was only a little bit of snow left at the top of Gross Aubrig. And today the ascent from Schrä via Bärlaui was nearly possible without having to walk through snow. It was a bit muddy here and there, but actually less than I had expected.

After descending from Gross Aubrig on the marked trail, I ascended about 100 m up towards P.1514 and then headed towards Nüssen. In the area around Nüssen there is still quite a bit of snow. In fact, the trail on the NE side of Nüssen towards Eggstofel is all covered with snow. I was using my gaiters not to get snow into the hiking boots. Next, I descended from Eggstofel in direction ENE on snowfields and then down through the forest to get back on the marked trail at elevation 1180 m.

Difficulties:
Ascent and descent on the wrw marked trail: T2 (maybe T3 in a few places)
Descent from Eggstofel in direction ENE on snowfields and then through the forest down to the trail at elevation 1180 m: T2 (no trail, orientation can be difficult)
