Ascending toward Im Griess, a moon-like landscape with just stones, almost no vegetation. The river is grey with sediments, I continue to Griessbödemli and Follen, an uneven meadow with stones - where I pitch my tent 18:30. I scout for another water source to fill the 2nd bottle for tomorrow morning, eventually 19:00 lay on my mattress for an early sleep.

Sunday July 3, 2022: Follen - Fisetenpass (2034m) - Malor (2037m) - Geissstein (2100m) - Linthal (662m)

Good sleep, a bit windy during the nights, brief gusts, mild temperature at ~2000m elevation (apprx. 8-10C), pack the tent and my stuff, and depart at 8:00 - further toward Fisetenpass at 2033m - I quickly look up weather forecast and it states tomorrow morning 8:00 rain all day long, so I decide not to stay another night, but make it a 2 day hike only - descending toward Fiseten valley, like a dish or spoon shape, impressive scenery - at Malor (2037m) ridge again entering the next valley, toward Geisstein (2100m) - the Claridenhütte would be at 2451m, but I skip it - ascending 400Hm and descending again would be too much, as I have a descend of 1500Hm ahead of me:
