Thanks to Luidger Röckrath and Terrill Thompson for contributing to these details. (View history)

Seldom visited peak in the mayor ridge of the Wetterstein. Proivdes very nice views of the nearby Zugspitze (highest peak of Germany) and the whole ridge connecting the Zug- and Alpsitze (socalled Jubilaeumsgrat). The ascent from South is easy but strenuous because of scree. Requires some alpine experience because their is no marked trail. About 5 hours from Ehrwalder Alm (1500m, hut with accommodations).

Thanks to Luidger Röckrath for this description.
