Thanks to Chris Courtney for adding this peak.

Limestone pyramid overlooking the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Good day trip for scramblers and climbers. Rock routes up the north face go at IV-VI and there are 4 Klettersteig (via ferrata) ranging from easy to medium difficulty on all but the south side of the peak. Summit of the Alpspitze forms one end of the well known Jubilaumsweg ridge traverse to/from the Zugspitze. Avoid the peak and traverse in any hint of unsettled weather.

Thanks to Chris Courtney for this description.
