Thanks to MMag. phil. Bernhard Fleisch for adding this peak.

The highest peak of Vorarlberg and very famous in the Alps. I started form the Wiesbadener hut over the Vermunt glacier, then climbed the Wiesbadener ridge and reached the Buin gap. From that saddle between big and little Buin it is a short passage to climb and then you reach the top. Marvellous view in all directions. With me was Hermann Gabriel and his wife Bohumila.
