An attempt and a chairlift  Sucess!

Started from Ehrwald and attempted this. Too much snow on route, 3 feet covered the via ferrata cables. Then descended and took the chairlift.

Reintal Route  Sucess!

From Garmisch train station - Knorrhütte (6h) where we slept on Saturday. Knorrhütte - summit (2h) - Knorrhütte - Gatterl - Ehrwald on Sunday. Sunny weather, some clouds. Beautiful walk through the Reintal valley.

Höllental, 1 day  Sucess!

Started from the parking lot at Kreuzberg at 6 o'clock. Superb weather and many people on the route most of them starting from Höllentalhütte. Reached the top after 6 hours. Had planned on climbing Jübiläumsgrat the next day, but weather was not too good, so I rode the train down in the afternoon.

Reintal  Sucess!

Started from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, passed through Partnachklamm and Reinthal, spent the night in Knorrhuette and climbed the summit next morning.
That was great!

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:-)

Highest point in Germany  Sucess!

Nothing like a Lowenbrau on the summit of the highest point in Germany...

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!!
