This route has everything! Start in the Hollental Gorge(which is georgous) then climb to the head of the Hollental Valley. Klettersteig up to the Hollental Glacier then cross this to the foot of the Zugspitz. Climb direct to the top by a mixed Klettersteig and Alpine style route.

Started at 7 a.m. from Grainau, was at the top at about 1 p.m. Glacier was crossable without crampons. Ferrata part is quite easy (don't be put off by the first difficult 10 meters). Had enough time to take the train down.

Early in the year, VF was under snow, Orientation in the upper VF a bit confusing. Due to loads of snow the gap between ferner and ladder was closed. Took me 3 1/2 h from the new Höllentalangerhütte to Germanys highest Beergarden.

Done many, many times. Absolutely fantastic. One of the best hikes I've ever done.

Awesome route. Crossing an icy and at times steep glacier without any crampons makes you appreciate what a great invention they are.

This is a lovely route with great variety from the initial gorge, to the small glacier and heaps of via ferrata. We had a fun day out.

Lots of snow and ice, poor visibility. Scary stuff.

Great Fun in Descent, Glacier at midday without crampons was a bit hairy like.
