Day 2 – On the Vizze High Route

The Vizze high route: Route 3 continues westwards on an almost flat ridge up to the east edge of the Wildseespitze. Here a short ascent on rock requires the use of fixed ropes. We then walk on the south side and then the west side of the mountain, and continue on the next ridge. Below the summit wall of the Wolfendorn (approx 2,650 m), you go along the west side (20 minutes to the summit, 2,776 m). After descending the Flatschjöchl (2,395 m), we walk back up a steep slope to reach the Flatschspitze Peak (2566 m), and eventually down the hill opposite the Schlüsseljoch Pass (2,209 m; 4 hours on the high route).
Descent: We will walk down on route 4 along steep meadows and woods to reach the village of Caminata – Kematen (1,440 m, hotel; at least 1.5 hours downhill). We will return by bus (or 1 hour on foot).
