Through the Höllental  Sucess!

There was no snow on the glacier. That was just what I had hoped for, because now I could easily avoid the crevasses. On my way to the glacier, I saw some people returning, looking unhappy - I believe they had wanted to cross the glacier without crampons, but that was virtually impossible. There even were big signs at the Höllentalanger Hütte saying that you would need them.

The climb was beautiful, but the summit experience is something else. I didn't stay long, and continued to the Knorr Hütte.

jvranjes  Sucess!

Walked all the way from the car parking at Kreuzeckbahn lift station (at 750 m above see level) via Höllental-klamm and the glacier. Reached the summit in 8 hours 45 minutes. Liked every single minute of the trip.

Hoellental route  Sucess!

Long trip - 8 h from Grainau. But an interesting journey through different terrain: path in the forest, magnificent canyon, moraines, a small glacier and via ferrata.

Route climbed: Ehrwalder Alm - summit  Sucess!

It was the most beautiful mountain route I've ever done (and I've done quite a few). The regular huts on the way up mean you don't need to carry a lot of food (although water and sun cream are essential!), and once over the top of the Ehrwalder Alm and round the back of the Zugspitze, the scenery was absolutley breathtaking. As a route, this isn't very hard, and even the last scramble can be avoided by taking the cable car (which I didn't do). Full route available at http://www.nsales.co.uk/hiking/hiking.htm

Top of Germany   Sucess!

Clasic way via ferrata from Ga-Pa (across the iceberg) to summit.
Nice but crowded way (summit totaly overcrowded by tourists)
Next day we went to Octoberfest in Munich as an reward:-)

Höllental  Sucess!

Started at 7am at Hammersbach. raced up to the glacier in order to save some time since us was told that the upper via ferrata is full of snow and ice. We overtook several people who started way before us. The sun did a great job on the ice and we didn' t have to wait at any time :) Phantastic views from the route and on the top. Great trip but the crowd on the summit is quite a contrast...

Höllental  Sucess!

Started at Hammersbach in the morning after sleeping in the car and did it as a one-day tour.
Tooooo many people on this day and a crowded route made me wait several times.

Höllental  Sucess!

Wonderful approach through the Höllental, stayed in the hut, then climbed with some new-found friends the next day to the summit (my first Klettersteig too!). Descended to an Austrian hut via another Klettersteig, and then out to the Eibsee the next day. Wonderful tour!!

Great climb and beautiful views, but was turned off by the little city built on top and all the people.

Route Climbed: Jubiläumsgrat  Sucess!

We made a "regular" winter climb of the Jubiläumsgrat: took the gondola from Eibsee to the Zugspitze and continued down via the ridge to Alpspitze and Osterfelderkopf.
Quiet, on a wednesday morning during winter...
Though gotta come back for a "fair means" ascent. :)

Repeated ascents  Sucess!

via different routes.
1981 Jubiläum ridge in winter with a friend in the following way:
Ropeway to Kreuzeckhaus. Next morning Alpspitze via Schöngänge and SE ridge, over to Jubiläum ridge to bivy hut. Clouds fell in that evening, but the morning brought the sun's splendor back again, with -16°C inside and -18°C outside the hut. Continued to Zugspitze bypassing several steep ridge sections using snow gullys on the S side of the ridge. Arrived at summit just 20 minutes before the last ropeway went down.
Fascinating alpinistic experience.

Via Reintal May 1984 and Sept 2004, both times in clouds above Knorrhütte.

From Ehrwald via Gatterl in June 2007 - very nice hiking tour.

Via Höllental in Aug 2011 - very impressive indeed!
