(visited by Karl Bryk and Heidi Peschl)

06-Sep-2015 -- A weekend near the Zirbitzkogel mountain, near the town of Neumarkt, gave us the opportunity on the return journey to visit CP 47N 15E. I had already visited this CP twice, once with Paul in 2007 and once with Michael in 2013.

After walking up the Zirbitzkogel from the Tonnerhut, and walking through snow above about 2000 metres, we returned to the car about 14:00 and headed for the CP directed, as is usual these days, by the car navigation device. From the Tonnerhut it was only 75 km.

We parked in the same place I had parked on my visit with Michael, close to the location of the hunter's Hochsitz and headed for the CP about 250 meters away. We headed directly up the slope towards the CP. Close to the CP we crossed a track which I could not remember from my previous visits, and followed what seemed like old tyre tracks (very much overgrown) which led directly to the CP.

The usual photos were taken and we headed down towards the Hochsitz and shortly afterwards to the car. On the way down we picked some of the numerous blueberries.
