Description

The Rote Wand ("Red Wall") is the second highest mountain at 2,704 m (AA) in the range, behind the lower pit Wildgrubenspitze(2,753 metres (9,032 ft)) in the mountains of Lech sources, it rises from the valley floor between the Großes Walsertal in the north, and Dalaas (Monastery Valley) in the south. The name "Red Wall/(Rote Wand)" originates from the distinct red-Lias limestone, which is particularly striking in the south wall. On the north side is a small glacier, the source of the Meng River.
