My first 10 pointer

Hi all,
this week I managed to activate “Riffelspitze” (DL/WS-011, 2262 m above sea), which was my first 10 pts summit.
I started at the village of Hammersbach (758 m above sea), passed the very nice “Höllentalklamm”, and reached the summit after a hike of more than 4 hours.

I have qualified the summit only with my HT (Icomm T70), and a telescope antenna.

Below I want to share some pictures.

I had a small rest at the hut “Höllentalangerhütte”:

The summit is very close now…

The cross on the summit. Looks like homebrewing…

Hi Robert,
TNX for nice pictures and congratulation to this activation.
This definitely is one of the more difficult and longer hikes in this region.
(I did it the other way round, cutting a few meters off by taking the Zugspitz-Railway up to Riffelriss.)

Brilliant! Great to get you summit to summit from the Black Forest!
