Ascending to the Gimpelhaus is very steep but from then on to the summit to walk up to the last piece of rope is insured. At the summit great view over the Tannheimer valley out to the valley. Extra tip for climbers Gimpel, Rote Flüh and Köllenspitze are the purest climbing paradise

Very nice crossing which is possible in both directions. Personally, I would recommend the way from the Gimpelhaus on the Friendberger via ferrata, as this is much more beautiful in the ascent, but feasible, of course, both.
Sturdy footwear, sure-footedness and no fear of heights required. For the via ferrata, the set and the helmet should not be missing.

The Rote Flüh is a mountain in the Tannheimer mountains, a subgroup of the Allgäu Alps. It is 2108 m high. The Rote Flüh consists of Wetterstein limestone. The mountain has its name because of its layered sprinkling of red limestone, which appear strikingly reddish at sunset.

Currently (as at the end of July) the normal route to Roten Flüh is difficult to access due to a mudslide. It is therefore best to take the path towards Gimpel over Gamskar. Attention: there is a risk of falling rocks, so helmets are compulsory. 😃
