Thanks to Manfred Pfluegl for adding this peak.

On this peak was the world's highest weather observatory at the turn of the century (ca. 1880). The weather station is still in use today and provides weather information over the internet. It is a nice hike during summer and can be a snow/ice climb in winter conditions.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Sonnblick in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.

    Given the lateness in the year (Oct) we were the only ones on the mountain. We had to make our own trail through the snow and the ice on the top was quite challenging.
