A challenge for any hiking enthusiast!The event starts in the wee hours of the early morning! Participants must start their hike between the hours of 5am and 8am. The route leads from Ginzling through the Floitental valley, ascending up to the Mörchnerscharte, the highest point of the hike at an altitude of 2,870m. The descent takes you past the Schwarzsee lake and the Berliner Hut in the Zemm Valley until you reach the finish line at the Gasthaus Breitlahner.
