HB/GR-121 Regitzer Spitz – 1135m, 2 points

Date: 08-11-2014 09:33-10:06 UTC
The Regitzer Spitz is a fairly easy summit (T2) which can be reached from various directions. I choose to start at the military barracks of St.Luzisteig. Note: The first part of this trail runs through a military training ground / shooting range. If there are exercises held, the trail to Regitzer Spitz will be closed and you’ll have to start your ascent either from St.Luzisteig or Fläsch. This should however never be the case on weekends. The way up is unspectacular, following a wide and easy trail. On the top, there’s a rather large plateau with benches and a long guardrail, offering plenty of antenna building and operating possibilities.
Despite being a nice and mostly sunny day in early November, there was a cold wind on the top, so I was quite a bit frozen after half an hour of operating. The view is however spectacular overlooking the Rhine valley, with many surrounding SOTA summits to be seen.
