Grauspitz Summit Challenge in Liechtenstein
The Grauspitz (Vorder Grauspitze or Vorder Grauspitz on some maps) is a mountain in the Rätikon range of the Alps, located on the border between Liechtenstein and Switzerland. With an elevation of 2,599 metres above sea level, the Grauspitz is the highest mountain in Liechtenstein. It is also the highest summit of the Rätikon range west of the Schesaplana massif.
The mountain lies between the valleys of Lawenatal (municipality of Triesen) on the north and the Fläscher Tal (canton of Graubünden, municipality of Fläsch) on the south. Both sides of the Grauspitz are in the basin of the Rhine, which flows approximately seven kilometres west of the mountain. The easiest route to the summit ascends over the Hinter Grauspitz (Schwarzhorn), and along a class 3–4 razor ridge.
To complete this peak challenge you must reach the top of Grauspitz in Liechtenstein.

Grauspitz – Lichtenstein
To get an idea of taking on Grauspitz, watch this short video by Daniel Orgoník. His aim was hiking to the highest mountain of Lichtenstein – Grauspitz (Vorder Grauspitz 2599m). However, due to the conditions only the lower peak Hinter Grauspitz (2574m) reached. This definitely shows that planning is required to visit at the best time of year. Also it is very sensible to know when to attempt a summit and when to turn around and leave the challenge for another time if the conditions are dangerous.
