    Comment / Trip report:

    Endlich etwas Winterfeeling auf der Tour um Vent. Morgens an der Hütte hat es zu Graupeln begonnen und ging dann ab ca. 2900m in Schneefall über. Die Querrung in den Unterhalb des Sommerwegs gelegenen Kessel gestaltete sich allerdings durch die Sichtverhältnisse schwierig und war nur mit GPS Unterstützung machbar.

    Abfahrt vom Fluchtkogel war dann allerdings dank Wolkenlücke ein Geschenk

    Unterwegs waren wir mit Oli:
