Tomas Kristoforyfrom Wiener Neustadter huette  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2012

Tomas Kristofory

It was a wonderful trip after a night out, since I started very late from Ehrwald (after a trip to Osterfelderkopf from GaPa). I slept in my sleeping bag underneath overhang at the place where there is a bench with (supposedly) nice view over the valley. I came there in deep night with my headlamp at 9:15 p.m. I wanted to sleep in the Wiener Neustadter huette, but could not then find the way further in fog and in the dark, so I slept there. The next day there was a wonderful inversion - clouds were solely in valleys underneath. I came to the huette, ate there, rested for a while after a night out and went on to the Klettersteig. It was actually quite easy. The only obstacle was the fresh snow. For the way back I used the cable car. It was a wonderful trip for me.

Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2012


Unfortunately not the time of year for climbing. Still I wanted to visit the high point of Germany. Without any true effort on my part, it might be only fair that I couldn't got to the true summit cross which was 5 or 10 meters higher. I could see a way to get there but the unconsolidated snow covering the ferrata helped me decide not to try it.

Even with the people on the summit the Höllental is worth it.

Started from Ehrwald and attempted this. Too much snow on route, 3 feet covered the via ferrata cables. Then descended and took the chairlift.

damgaardHöllental, 1 day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2011


Started from the parking lot at Kreuzberg at 6 o'clock. Superb weather and many people on the route most of them starting from Höllentalhütte. Reached the top after 6 hours. Had planned on climbing Jübiläumsgrat the next day, but weather was not too good, so I rode the train down in the afternoon.

rggThrough the Höllental  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2007


There was no snow on the glacier. That was just what I had hoped for, because now I could easily avoid the crevasses. On my way to the glacier, I saw some people returning, looking unhappy - I believe they had wanted to cross the glacier without crampons, but that was virtually impossible. There even were big signs at the Höllentalanger Hütte saying that you would need them.

The climb was beautiful, but the summit experience is something else. I didn't stay long, and continued to the Knorr Hütte.

Walked all the way from the car parking at Kreuzeckbahn lift station (at 750 m above see level) via Höllental-klamm and the glacier. Reached the summit in 8 hours 45 minutes. Liked every single minute of the trip.

Long trip - 8 h from Grainau. But an interesting journey through different terrain: path in the forest, magnificent canyon, moraines, a small glacier and via ferrata.

nsalescoukRoute climbed: Ehrwalder Alm - summit  Sucess!
It was the most beautiful mountain route I've ever done (and I've done quite a few). The regular huts on the way up mean you don't need to carry a lot of food (although water and sun cream are essential!), and once over the top of the Ehrwalder Alm and round the back of the Zugspitze, the scenery was absolutley breathtaking. As a route, this isn't very hard, and even the last scramble can be avoided by taking the cable car (which I didn't do). Full route available at http://www.nsales.co.uk/hiking/hiking.htm
