Its a very fine and easy to recognize mountain above the "Ehrwalder Becken ".
Coming from Garmisch-Partenkirchen or from Fernpass, the Ehrwalder Sonnenspitze is a salient beautifully formed summit with no equivalent in the region.

Technically not difficult however somewhat laborious, the hike partly on tar, partly on crushed stones leads up to the Seebensee. The summitclimb on predominantly good rock is not under grade 2 and the route is not good marked (say better not) : you have to look for your way .
Descent partly in unpleasant broken stones. Helmet recommendable. Altogether a fantastic route !

This webcam is located close to Ehrwalder Alm (~1500m).
Sometimes Sonnenspitze is visible in the streamed version of the webcam (see the stream link).

Route Marking

In 2009 both the north and south route where freshly marked with red dots. It is now very easy to find the route. The south route now also carries many statinless stell hooks, which detract from the originally unspoilt nature of the route.
