    The Entschenkopf is a 2043 m high mountain in the Allgäu Alps. Its south-widening ridge forms the eastern boundary of Gaisalptals.
    The Entschenkopf can be reached from the north (from the Falkenjoch) as well as from the south (from the upper Gaisalpsee). Both climbs require sure-footedness and a head for heights.

    The way here from the Gaisalpe has easy climbing points, the marking is not always easy to see. The way down to the Gaisalpsee is a beautiful ridge path, partially exposed and insured with ropes.

    From Hinang - Sonnenkopf - Schnippenkopf - Deinenkopf - Hinang: the first ascent towards Sonnenkopf was the steepest and most strenuous part of the tour. It took us a little more than an hour to get to the Sonnenkopf. It took another 40 minutes to get to the Schnippenkopf. From there you can also see the mighty de-head. The path is quite narrow and leads you through scree and branches. It gets even more rocky further up. I wouldn't recommend the tour without sticks. Towards the end we stowed the sticks and cracked up in all-wheel drive mode. Here you should be really free from giddiness and sure-footed. Unfortunately, you can't see the markings straight away. Once at the top, the 360 degree view of the mountains and valleys is very impressive. Here you can easily take a break, there is enough space. It was on the summit and generally not very busy, we were mostly alone. The way back was a long one. It took us almost exactly 5 hours.

    Great view. But only if you have experience and appropriate equipment, the risk would be too high for everyone else.

    There was still some snow when I made the tour from Reichenbach over the Falkenjoch at the beginning of June 2021. In particular the steep ascent in the mountain pines was snow-covered but all in all easy to do. If there is snow, I would rather climb from the Falkenjoch, I would not recommend the descent over the snow in the steep terrain there. It was a brilliant tour with a feast for the eyes, the Enzian & Co were growing splendidly at that time. On the descent to the Gaisalpsee there were also wonderful opportunities to "ski down" on the snow in hiking boots, which I would not recommend to everyone (the real ski bunny of course;).

    The trail markers on the north climb were renewed today. I overtook the marker man just before the summit. So he may have renewed the markings on the south side as well. Nevertheless, absolute surefootedness and a head for heights are required for both climbs!
