Last peak before driving back to Denmark after 2,5 weeks in the Alps with superb weather. I climbed "The König" of Hohe Tauern in the beginning of the vacation and now made it to the top of the "Königin". Drove up to the Giessener Hütte on MTB, slept for the night and summited the NeXT morning via Detmolder Grat. Nice mixed route. Decended on the Rudolstädter weg. Superb weather.

We have tried to reach it from Villacher Hütte, but we have failed. The snow was extremely deep and the weather was too foggy.

Very interesting and lovely ridge to this highest summit in Ankogel group.Start from Gießener Hütte,descent by the same route-a little exhausting ,specially on vertical passages and on icy ,steep glacier.We wanted to descend by normal route but the guy from the hut warned us that nobody has climbed there since month because of falling stones and pure vertical ice passages between rocks and the glacier.Late summer looks in that way on this route..No crowds,only 2 people on the top with us,wonderful weather and views.Good beer in the hut after descent;)

We backed.
I climbed with Sene. It was perfect weather conditions in the first part of the day. On the top was partly darken. I was very pleased when I reached the summit. We were on the top for an hour. The descent was a little adventurous in a strong hail.

After that we can't go up last year, we start at 5 am. from Osnabrücker Hütte. It was a long walking but we could reach the summit befor the weather bleaken. When we went down we got a soaking icy wet.

Herb wrote Hochalmspitze The Queen. Quite so. She did not allow us close to her. We failed. But there was perfect weather and snow condition. We saw the Grosslockner from Preimlscharte. We approached to the summit from Osnabrücker Hütte /cosy house with very friendly owner/ across Preimlscharte 2953m, and had to turn back 150-200 meters under the top. Started too late. It was a long tour and we out of time. Was 2 o'clock pm, when we turned back. Long tour with many crevasses. You need perseverance and endurance to carry out. What a pity...
We will back.

HerbAscent: Detmolder Grat (SW-ridge) - Descent: Rudolstädter Weg (SE-ridge, Steinerne Mannln)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2006


Did it with my girlfriend Irene as a day-trip from Goesskarspeicher (parking lot) via Giessener hut and Detmolder ridge to the summit and back via "Steinerne Mannln". We had a beautiful day - nearly cloudless sky. We were the only ones on the Detmolder ridge that day. We saw some people on the summit during our climb, but when we arrived there, we had it for our own. It's a nice climb, where you need many skills and experience (climbing grade I and II, ferrata, glacier crossing). I can highly recommend this route. Glockner is the king of "Hohe Tauern", but Hochalmspitze is the queen...

Mathias ZehringRoute Climbed: Detmolder ridge traverse Date Climbed: July 26th 1988  Sucess!

Mathias Zehring

This was a looong day: we started at Arthur-von-Schmid-Haus hut and climbed Saeuleck first where we had breakfast. Then we followed the via ferrata over the whole ridge, passing the minor summits of Gussenbauerspitze and Schneewinkelspitze to Lassacher Winkelscharte pass and then climbing the final ridge with 500 m height to Hochalmspitze. Descent was over the Hochalm glacier to Preimlscharte and then down to the Osnabruecker hut. The next day we crossed Ankogel to get back to the Mallnitz valley. This is probably the best trip you can do in the Ankogel group.

Nice climb! To reach Steinerne Maennln you need some snow equipment also in summer.
