Thanks to MMag. phil. Bernhard Fleisch for adding this peak.
A wonderful climbing peak with several routes. The easiest is III+. From some perspective the Trettachspitze almost looks as impressive as the Matterhorn why it is often refererd to as the "Allgäuer Matterhorn". The mountain is composed of quite good limestone (Hauptdolomit). Together with the Hochfrottspitze and the Mädelegabel the Trettachspitze forms the "Allgäuer Dreigestirn" which is visible from Einödsbach.
I climbed this peak in 1998 with my pals Marco Klocker and Siegfried Gugele. Siegfried had an accident when going down a frozen snowfield. He crashed into a stone and gravel field after sliding down about 25 meters on the snowfield. He suffered some not too severe injuries and was lucky to have survived. We all three were flown out by a German Air rescue chopper. Siegfried spent a few days in the Oberstdorf infirmary.
