|Altitude difference:||~ 1600m / 5250ft|
|Duration:||about 4-6 hours (ascend)|
|Trail head:||Parking lot of the charilift "Mundelift" near Leutasch.|
|Difficulty:||Beautiful hiking with some parts of easy climbing (UIAA: I - II).|
Sarting point is the parking lot (free parking!) of the "Mundelift" about 2km from Leutasch.
Using "Mundelift" to Rauthhütte (1605m / 5264ft) will shorten your ascend by approx. one hour.
See the main page for a detailed description of reaching the trail head.
The trail to Rauthhütte starts at the right end of the parking lot. This path (# 8) leads into the forest and you' ll reach the hut within 1 hour.
After leaving the hut the path gets steeper and the views to the surrounding mountainside are getting more interresting. At about 1900m / 6233ft the easy climbing parts start (see this photo
). After this "gully" the path stays very steep and sometimes it may happen, that you' ve lost the path... but the direction is always up!
Finally you reach a shoulder which leads to the east summit (2592m / 8503ft). From here path #8 still leads on to the main summit of Hohe Munde.
Descent the same way.
In summer hiking gear is sufficient.
In winter special gear like crampons or snow shoes (depending on snow conditions!) are needed!!! - A huge amount of experience
is needed to judge alpine dangers like avalanches!!!
