Ascended from the north, from Schöneben, though the last part of the trail went up from the east side. No trouble with scree whatsoever, it was just a very steep trail. After the Zehner I followed the south ridge on my way to the Elferspitz.
Climbed Elferspitz, descended the north face and found a path marked "only for experts" along the south ridge of Zehner. Climbed more than halfway across the ridge but then returned as it became evident that without protective gear we would risk too much. Climbed the normal route instead, a short horrible scree route.
