Summary

The highest Bratwurst in Germany and lots of tourists. And the cablecar gets you down if you wish. AND it´s Germany´s highest summit at which at least not all tourists get.

Description

Some older and rarely used climbs and two rather mainstream routes that are more (Höllental) or less (Stopselzieher) viae ferratae.

Access issues inherited from Germany

Covid 19: Please note that each federal state has its own rules about Covid 19!

Grade Route

From the Höllentalangerhütte around 6 hours. Nearly all can be climbed without using the steel cables.

Crampons and via ferrata set recommended.

From the Wiener-Neustädter Hütte using the (not always) steel cabled climb through the distinctive cave ("Der Stopselzieher" = the corkscrew) to the ridge and to the summit.

CAUTION when there´s snow. Slippery passages without any protection.

The Jubiläumsgrat ("Jubilee Ridge") or Jubiläumsweg ("Jubilee Way"), also nicknamed Jubi among mountaineers, is the name given to the climbing route along the ridge between the Zugspitze (2,962 m) and the Hochblassen (2,706 m) (hence it is also called the Blassenkamm which means "Blassen Crest"). In front of its northwestern end, at the wind gap known as Falsche Grießkarscharte, climbers normally cross over to the Alpspitze (2,628 m) or down to the Mathaisenkar. Along the ridge the three peaks of the Höllentalspitzen (2,740 m), the Vollkarspitze (2,630 m) and several rises have to be assailed or circumnavigated. The route is a serious, high Alpine tour and not, as often described, a Via Ferrata. Source Wikipedia

Lots of easy scrambling (UIAA I-II) with a few, but well protected, "harder" sections. Some fragile rock but overall nice line with adventurous character.
