Autumn for peace of mind
Did the E-W version. 8 hours on the ridge itself, Zugspitze summit at 6:30 PM. Foggy, after midday no views at all.
Climbed the ridge during winter with a mate and 3 other mountaineers who we'd met at the Zugspitze. It took us 19.5 hours to the bivy hut and another 16 via the Alpspitze to the Osterfelderkopf.
Really impressive tour!
Started at 8am at Zugspitze and reached the last cable car at Osterfelderkopf. Due to the high temperatures it was very exhausting and I got a nice sunburn on my neck. Great trip anyway with some really cool sections...
