^ Mount Nageli: Stars over the Alps ^

Mount Nageli ( 2165m) is more or less unfamous. It is located westwards of the famous Churfirsten mountain chain and eastwards of the easily accessible Leistkamm (2101m). Walking alongside the Toggenburger Hohenweg you get to the feet of the mountain at 1820m. You have to walk over a boulder field first, and then along a steep meadow/moss slope. This T3 categorized way get’s the last out of you. It’s really exhausting. The summit has only occasional visitors. The last entry in the guest book of the summit cross was in February 2011 – three months ago.

I have chosen mount Nageli because of all the summits around it has the best 360° view and you can see the Churfirsten tops in one row. If you do such a ascent, you have to stay for a while. I get up in the evenings, stayed during the night to take pictures and get down in the morning.
