FATMAP difficulty grade
The route follows an easy waymarked trail up to Hocheck, the northern presummit.
Only one steeper passage is equipped with a cable between Watzmannhaus and Hocheck. From Hocheck onwards the route follows the ridge to Mittelspitze, the main summit.
This part of the route is much more exposed than the previous one, which is probably why most people do not go further than Hocheck.
There are no really difficult passages, all those that could be difficult are equipped with cables but it is NOT a via ferrata (klettersteig) in the contemporary sense as the cable is not continuous.
