Katerina, Daniele, and I headed off to Brandnertal early in the morning. We took the lift up to the Douglashütte. From there we walked around the side of the hill and down to the beginning of the Saulakopf Klettersteig. It’s a nice route that leads up to the summit of Saulakopf. Brendan and I tried it out a few years ago. There’s a D section near the start but it doesn’t get harder than this. We ascended to the summit in the sunshine before heading back down to the Douglashütte for some refreshments.
