Last Sunday, September 24, 1995 I left early in the morning in the direction of Glarus (this was easy since we had just changed back to Central European Time). After an 80 minutes' drive I reached the area of Klöntalersee where I parked the car at the altitude of 1050 meters. The plan was to climb the peak called Vorderglärnisch, 2330 meters above sea level. On first sight this mountain does not look very attractive since it is almost 600 meters below the main peak of the massive (Glärnisch). However, since in the projection this peak is very close to the main valley, and nevertheless more than a mile above its bottom, it is known as a spectacular point.
