We drove to Brandnertal in the morning and parked near the Lünerseebahn. From there we walked up to the Douglas Hütte and dropped some of our gear. We then trekked over to Saulajoch in the sunshine. Leonie waited at the pass with an E-book and Brendan and I headed down towards the Henrich-Hueter Hütte. Before reaching the hut we headed up to the Saulakopf Klettersteig and climbed up to Saulakopf. The Klettersteig was good fun with some sections where you needed a bit of arm strength. I managed to haul my fat backside up to the top though.
At the top we raced back down at high speed and met Leonie again. We did a loop around the Schafgafall and back to Douglashütte where we stayed the night.
It was cold and had rained the next day. We went for a walk to the Totalphütte.
