Much easier and faster than i was expecting, didn't real feel the need to clip on. A great first experience but noted not to get over confident.
but a great tour!
We were a party of 6 - all reached the top.
Perfect weather and visibility. An enjoyable climb!
Quite a few people on the mountain (even it was a Monday)
I´ve done this one 5 times and it was always an enjoyable climb.
Normal route from Gruttenhutte chalet on the via ferrata Gamsangersteig, nice weather and magnificent views!
Used rope a few pitches only. Descended by Gamsängersteig. Overall a worthwhile climb as long as you do not belay continously. If you do belay too often it can become lengthy. Good rock.
Perfect day for a hike in a real nice area.
great trip with great views.
weather sunny and dusty. not as hot as in summer.
have fun & good luck,
A wonderful day for my friend and me. But many people on the mountain are the reason for some dangers (falling rocks). I think this mountain is overcrowded in the vacation time from Germany (July - August).
Never done in good weather conditions since we had been climbing then.
With my Jasmina we were first time in Wilder Kaiser. Thanks to a clever logistics, we did a very enjoyable tour. We first left on Saturday bicycles on Wochenbrunnen Alm, drove by car on the opposite side of Kaisers into Kaiserbach Valley, climbed through Steinerne Rinne and summited Hintere Goinger Halt, descended on the south side to the Grutten Huette and slept on open air some 100 meters above it. On Sunday we climbed as first tourists Ellmauer Halt, descended to Wochenbrunnen Alm and cycled all around the massif to get car again. From Slovenia to Wilder Kaiser we have 4 hours and half to drive.
It was a foggy day, couldn´t see anything; ascent from the Gruttenhütte; nice "via ferrata".
Slept in the nice Anton-Karg-Hut (Hinterbärenbad). Started early to do the whole package (Kleine Halt, Gamshalt, Ellmauer Halt). Nice via ferrata, but high risk of stone fall in the gully leading to the Kleine Halt (you should definitely take a helmet).
From the summit of the Ellmauer Halt we descended on the Gamsängersteig towards Gruttenhütte, but then ascended to the Kopftörl (a pass allowing again to get to the northern side of the main Kaiser ridge). Then we descended via Kaiser valley to Kufstein train station. A very long day!
