Approach


From Ehrwald to Coburger Hütte (several possibilities, marked pathes, via Ehrwalder Alm, Seebensee or via Hoher Gang (cables))

Route Description


The route is not really marked, but there are tracks and some pitons. The ascent follows basically the south ridge or
couloirs in the east flank. Nice scramble, no more difficult than UIAA 2.
The traverse from the south summit (huge cairn) to the north summit shich features the cross is a bit exposed.
The descend from the north summit to the Seebensee is also sparsely marked with bizarre pitons, very steep and has
lots of loose scree.

Essential Gear


No climbing required. Most people do not use ropes etc.
