We started very early in the morning shortly after 5:00 am since the weather was forcasted to be very hot. We drove to Hochzirl by car and from there we rode our mountain bikes towards Solsteinhaus. We left our bikes at the end of the forest road and hiked the last 1 1/2 hours to Solsteinhaus. At Solsteinhaus we had a short break, filled up our water bottles before continuing the hike to Eppziler Scharte where the Via Ferrata to Erlspitze starts. The Via Ferrata was very easy (mostly A and B), except for one short passage with difficulty C. At 9:45 we arrived the summit of Erlspitz where we enjoyed the beautiful scenary. We took the same way down to our bikes and were very happy that we did not have to d0 the long walk down to the car.
