Zugspitze - Höllental

Climbs ? – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 2962m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
The more popular, but harder route is through the Höllental. It starts at Hammersbach near Garmisch, goes through the Höllentalklamm, a similar gorge up to the "Höllentalangerhütte", where one can take a meal or stay for the night. It then crosses the Höllentalferner, the remnants of a small glacier. After that it traverses a wall with the help of iron ladders and steps. Via ferrata equipment is recommended for that part. Over the Irmerscharte (a gap) it reaches the summit. This path will take 7 to 8 hours.

Access notes
If you plan to stay over for the night at Höllentalangerhütte is it recommended to book in advance
