ApproachSee the main section how to reach the upper station of Mallnitz cable-car, 2631m.
Route DescriptionFrom the upper station of cable-car follow the marked path towards east, which descends a little till it reaches the Goslarer Weg (path), No. 502, coming from the nearby Hannover Haus. Proceed towards east to distinctive rocks of Grauleitenwand, after which our ascent leaves the Goslarer Weg (it proceeds horizontally) and goes up over snow rests (small glacier ?) of Lassacher Kees. This ice field has no dangerous crevasses. After crossing the ice field we reach the Radeckscharte, 2874m. Not very much of height have been gained in 1h 30min. Northern horizons open, while towards south and west we were enjoying panorama all the time so far.
From Radeckscharte the marked ascent goes over the broad shoulder of Kleiner Glockner (Lower Ankogel) to its summit, 3097m. A narrow ridge and we reach the base of the main summit rocks. Marks lead us just below the west ridge, always keeping on the south side. In some 30 minutes we reach the main summit, 3246m.
From Radeckscharte to the foresummit and over it to the main summit the path is rocky, but in summer it offers no difficulties. In good conditions it is also used in spring, when tour skiers ascend the Kleiner Ankogel from which you can ski down towards north in Anlauftal or the main summit from which they ski down towards east to Osnabruecker Huette. From the cable-car station 2h 30min.
