Approach


From Kuchl / Austria take the small road to the "Kühschwalb", a very nice valley between the Rossfeld mountain and Göll (650m a.s.l.). At the end of the road there is a small parking place. Follow the small unpaved road leading into the valley. After a small chapel the road splits up. Turn to the left crossing a small (most times dry) river. After a few 100m a small path which leads to the Wilder Freithof and to the east face) starts at the left side of the Kühschwalb valley.

Route Description


At the Wilder Freithof, a very impressive cirque, a large gully starts, transsecting the east face from the left (base, north) to the right side. Follow this gully upwards. After a few 100m the snow coverage might be low, then traverse to the left and climb the small ridge. Follow the small ridge to its end. Now it is getting steeper again. Depending on the snow coverage proceed in the middle or at the left side. Over this step a large rather steep snowfield starts which narrows in the upper part to a steep gully (up to 50°) which ends beneath a threatening cornice connecting the Hohe Göll with the "Kuchler Göll". The cornice will be sidestepped on the left side.
