Route Climbed: normal route via Gatschkopf Date Climbed: September 7th 2003
On Sept. 6th we walked along the Augsburger Hoehenweg hiking trail from Ansbacher hut to Augsburger hut. This is a very demanding hiking trail with long exposed passages. Because the weather was rainy we didn't want to climb Parseierspitze in addition and descended to the Augsburger hut. Surprisingly the next (this) morning weather was much better. I did the climb alone, my friends descended to Grins. It took me 1 h to the Gatschkopf and another to the summit. The climb looks more difficult than it is is but you should have experience with rocks UIAA II. The route is marked with red spots but there are no cables at all.
Route Climbed: via Gatschkopf Date Climbed: June 30th, 2002
On Saturday we hiked to the "Augsburger Hütte" in about 3 hours. The hut was still closed but there is a big open sleeping room.
On Sunday we hiked up to "Gatschkopf" and descended to the Patrolscharte. But there still was a steep and long snow-field from the Patrolscharte down to the "glacier". Having only hiking boots and no crampons with us, we thought it too risky and too
time-consuming to cross the snow-field.
So we returned via Gatschkopf to the hut and descended to Grins.
