“Great view of South Park and lakes on the way up and on summit. Good view of Pike's Peak along the way.
For an easy hike take highway 24 west of Wilkerson pass and turn right on first dirt road. Follow LaSalle pass road. Not clearly marked so you need to follow the hi voltage power line up the hill. At top of pass forest road on right will take you half way up to summit. Park across from locked gate and hike the road to the top. Easy 3 mile walk if you are used to the altitude. Great when the aspen trees are turning bright yellow end of September.
WARNING, DO NOT CLIMB TOWERS AT TOP.. They are high voltage and microwave that can literally cook you by just getting in front of them.
You can hike up from other county roads but ther are no trails. Best to hike mornings in summer due to frequent mid afternoon showers with lots of lightning. The towers attract lightning as evidenced by multiple tree strikes all around the summit.”

“Got Ueda bound Chikuma bus from Nerima town hall, Tokyo at 8.00am to Matsuida South interchange at 10.00am. Walked to shrine start via road 231 and 196. Up to shrine in cave was easy and harness/via ferrata(rope and carabiners)/helmet used after that (although easy ground to start and was alone). Exhilarating ridge walking and chain descents/traverses in amongst fantastic trees but exhausting. Save energy for second peak which is more daunting and includes a bit of rock soloing and walking on loose rock with large exposure. Don't forget to cut the corner on the road descent. 5h round trip, although bus was 7.38pm and onsen closed/nothing to do/eat around bus stop. Train station better option for return. Do it!”

We reached the top of the Kreuzspitze from mountain village Vent (1900m). It is a 2 h walk to the Martin-Busch hutte (2501m = +600m, 5 km). From the M-B hutte it is a 3 h climb to the summit (3457m = +1000m, 2.5 km). In 4 h you can descent to Vent. The route is relative simple and well marked. Snow might cover the markings. Mist and clouds could also be a problem. You pass one or two snow fields but you need no crampons as the snow fields are horizontal. The top houses a great top cross and a fantastic view!
