in early June a friend and i will be hiking across Switzerland, as part of this we will be taking a hiking path up to Leutschachhütte SAC and from there the hiking trail ends and we're left with the step accents to Krönten, Chli/Gross Spannort and Schlossberg. My question is if there's a reasonable (hard walking, minor climbing but NOT overly dangerous) route from Leutschachhütte SAC in the valley to the east to Spannorthütte SAC in the valley to the west which is east of Engelberg?
I ask as from satellite imagery shows some rather large ridges to tackle and possibly glacial ice between the aforementioned mounts? We will have suitable clothing/weather protection and walking crampons/poles but no climbing gear (no helmets).
Any tips most appreciated.
