The Grandlspitz is a distinctive mountain between Hochscharte and Taghaube with a upstream tower at the Southwest side. Behind Grandlspitz there is Hochkönig and Hochseiler.
From the summit you have a wonderful view to the near Hochkönig (you can see the summit cross) and Hochseiler in the North, to Tennengebirge, Sonnblick group and Glockner group with Großglockner, Wiesbachhorn. You can also see Großvenediger.

Next to Grandlspitz there is the Erich hut. From the hut you can reach the summit in 1 h 45 min.

There are several possibilities to reach the summit. There are some interesting climbing routes in good and solid rock.
