HB/SG-034 Stockberg – 1781m, 6 points

Date: 22-06-2013 12:21-13:23 UTC
Not so promising WX when arriving, the Stockberg was hidden within a big cloud. A special permit is required to drive up to Risipass with a motor vehicle. This permit can be bought at a small (unmanned) booth on the way up. Be sure to bring CHF 10.- in cash, as there is no possibility for exchange. The way up from Risipass to Stockberg is rather easy and takes less than 1 hour. It gets a little steep once you reach the final ridge. There’s a new wooden cross on the summit (marked 2012). Visibility was down to about 50m, however later in the afternoon it cleared up a bit and it was possible to get some glimpses down in the valley and of the surrounding mountains.
