Just two weeks before Easter I had my first chance of the year to revive the strong desire to climb in a familiar part of the Alps together with my friends. Everything was still snow-covered but at least the peak of Seekopf near Ruhpolding was ours. As you can see from my panorama taken in 2005 of one of the lakes below I regularly visit this area.


With only 1173 m this is one of the smaller peaks in the Chiemgau Alps. So the two trails that lead to the summit cross do not take a long time to walk. If you find one of those two paths in the snow... Be careful around this spot though: there is a steep drop hidden between the low plants right before the bench. So have a seat and enjoy the vista with Hörndlwand and the lovely lakes between Ruhpolding and Reit im Winkl.
