FATMAP difficulty grade
Amazing al round mountaineering route for those who want to have a true alpine experience for the first time, but do not underestimate this route if you push the summit in one single day, because you need a decent fitness level to do so! I did this walk from the village of Garmisch Partekirchen in one day and it took me around 9 to 10 hours to reach the summit.
usually they start from hammersbach and you can reach the Höllental Hütte in about 3 hours from there.
Easier option is to stay over in the hut and walk it in 2 days, instead of 2300 hight meters, this second stage requires around 1686 hight meters and is still not a normal walk.
You will pass 2 different via ferrata stages: 1 after leaving the hut, where you pass "Das Brett" with stunning views into the Höllental Valley.
After that some rock scrambling, but never difficult untill you reach shortly after that the Schneeferner Glacier.
I used my crampons and ice axe.
It was in the beginning of June and it took me around 45 min to reach the 2e stage of the via ferrata.
A more steep climb.
and the beginning is usually a start with a metal ladder, but because of the changing glacier structure it was moved a few meters up with new cables.
From there you leave the glacier behind and push for the last part up to the summit.
I took some drone shots during this journey and i will send the link underneath this description where you get some good feel what it looks like.
Simply beautiful area! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UjRoj2FGHA
