gimpilatorEibsee Cable Lift
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.

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

Started at 7am at Hammersbach. raced up to the glacier in order to save some time since us was told that the upper via ferrata is full of snow and ice. We overtook several people who started way before us. The sun did a great job on the ice and we didn' t have to wait at any time :) Phantastic views from the route and on the top. Great trip but the crowd on the summit is quite a contrast...

Started at Hammersbach in the morning after sleeping in the car and did it as a one-day tour.
Tooooo many people on this day and a crowded route made me wait several times.
