This section is not for the inexperienced. It's not soft enough and too steep to expect to have a good chance at self arrest! In fact, while these hikers only had hiking poles, I had an ice axe, but was still very careful not to slip.
If there is someone in your party that does not have enough experience in crossing steep snowfields, it's a good thing to bring a length of rope on this route if there is snow. You'll pass the Rüsselsheimer Hütte on your way up, and the people there can tell you about the route conditions.
