    Nice, but already demanding climb. Avoid in damp weather, because then rock alternates with mud.

    Not for the faint of heart and fear of heights. Sure-footedness required !!

    With good weather and good visibility you can look very far to both sides and look very deeply. As always my tip, either very early or very late on the road, with luck you have the whole mountain to yourself.

    The summit looks impressive, is easy to reach with a fixed steel cable! Worth it!

    The summit "Am Stein" should not be missed when climbing from the Kuhalm. Worthwhile up to the summit cross and then a nice passage to the Teufelsstättkopf.

    Those who still have time to climb to the Teufelstättkopf should definitely make a detour to this beautiful summit cross. The view and photo motif are definitely worth it. Simply turn left instead of right and in a few minutes you are there and can enjoy the peace and quiet and the view

    Coming from the Kuhalm there is a very exposed / uncomfortable part of the path at the entrance to the ridge (trodden, sloping, no stopping options and no rope insurance).
    When you have overcome this, the rest of the route is craggy and rooty and a constant up and down.
    As a visual railing, there is at least plenty of mountain pine vegetation.
    For me with a slight fear of heights, it was ultimately doable, but I didn't enjoy it 😅
    I recommend going over the Kuhalm, otherwise you would have to climb down a lot the other way around.

    Kristina, you're right about your recommendation for sure-footedness.
    Unfortunately not with the spelling.
    The title must read: tightrope walk; After all, you do not walk on one degree (latitude or longitude), but on the ridge (ridge).

    Great balancing act for those who like it a little more airy ;-)

    The ridge is not particularly demanding for experienced hikers. In autumn, the descent from the Teufelstättkopf to the Kuhalm can be a bit slippery because of the north-facing slope and partly frozen during the day.

    The cross on the Teufelstättkopf appears larger in the photos than it actually is.
    The ascent is secured with a steel cable. You should be sure-footed.
