It's my dream summit (actually 4 of them) - but unfortunately it is so incredibly steep that I don't think I'll ever have the guts to climb it.

Snowshoes - rented. It doesn't pay to buy a pair of snowshoes if you go to the mountains in winter only every four years.

And no - I just have to step out of my hotel - turn left for about 50m to see this view. Have snowshoed to the other opposite side but didn't make it to where I wanted because renting those snowshoes took too much time and I was late ...

It is a beautiful mountain, maybe one of the most impressive around Oberstdorf, I climbed it from the Hoefats saddle more than 20 years ago in the summer. You are right with it being incredibly steep. Some portions are so steep I had to straddle the grassy ridge. Many accidents happended here when the grass is wet.

Cheers, Guido

First time I saw it from Älpelesattel in 1996 I simply went dizzy from just looking up the ridge. Today I think I could climb the west summit by this ridge, only there is a short rocky section which will certainly turn me around.

Breathtaking shot of Höfats!!! It's also one of my dream summits, but I don't think I'll ever be able to climb it, too :(
I've been to Oberstdorf on Sunday but Höfats didn't look that impressive anymore... Thanks for this remarkable shot! Cheers Lukas

Yes, snow is starting to disappear from the south faces. Still plenty around, though. I sat two hours on Riedberger Horn today, just watching the panorama. Sunny, warm, no wind, fog in the valleys, a few cirrus clouds above Nebelhorn and Hochvogel ....

I didn't want to leave ....
