Another weekend in the Rätikon was ahead of us. We went by bus to the Lünerseebahn and walked up to the Douglas Hut (the same as we did two weeks before). From there we walked to the beginning of the via ferrata Saulakopf. It must have been the hottest day of the year! We were exhausted and sweating when we arrived at the beginning. And there were many many people! But we quickly put on the gear and started before the group of around 10. The way to the top was very exhausting, because of the hot temperatures. We climbed up in the sunshine with a great view to the Lünersee. On the top we had some food and decided to go back to the Douglas Hut quickly, because huge clouds were beginning to cover the sky. The descent down to the hut was also very exhausting, we had no more water and it was still very hot. We had some Skiwasser at the hut and decided to stay there over night (actually we wanted to go to the Totalp Hut). In the evening a huge storm arrived. It was very nice to sit inside the warm hut and watch the weather outside.

The next morning we were a bit lazy and decided to walk up to the Totalp Hut and look for a nice place to relax. We found one and layed in the sunshine for some hours. Then we walked back down to the Lünerseebahn and drove home.
