Great Gable via the Passes

Some mountains, such as Cnicht, tend to be worth viewing in the main from just the one direction. A bit like an optical illusion, move a little to either side and the effect is lost. Some mountains, however, seem to have an ever changing facade as you view them from different directions. Great Gable is one such mountain, and this walk takes you all around the mountain, at a reasonable distance in order to savour the view. Yet you don’t actually ascend it!
