Bike & hike from Klöntal Plätz to Lauiberg, Biet, & Fläschenspitz in perfect weather! Start of the tour at 8:15 AM. First with the bike up to Schwelaui (500 m elevation gain), where I parked the bike. Then on the wrw marked trails up to Saaspass (T3). During the ascent I did not exactly follow the marked trail at the beginning.

From Saaspass I hiked to Lauiberg, and back again (T3). There were a few people in the area, but no big crowds. Next, I headed up to Biet and continued to P.1918 where I enjoyed my lunch in the bright sunshine. Afterwards I continued towards Fläschenspitz. The traverse in the scree was rather strenuous (T3+). I headed for the small tree which indicates the best (easiest) place to ascend. A little bit of climbing is needed, but there is a rope which can be helpful (T4). After that it is easy to continue to the summit of Fläschenspitz. There were two people at the summit, but when I was approaching, they started the descent. So I had the mountain top all for myself.

For the descent, I followed the same way back to Saaspass, but then I took a detour around Sihlseeli before heading back down to my bike. The bike ride down to Klöntalersee was quite fast.

All in all a great bike & hike with great weather!
