Routes leading to this Highlight may be dangerous
Routes may comprise technical, difficult, or hazardous terrain. Specialist equipment and prior experience may be required.
The Hohe Riffler is a 3000 m high mountain, so it can be reached without a via ferrata or glacier contact. Nevertheless, solid alpine experience is required for the ascent, because the paths, especially from the Edmund-Graf-Hütte, are demanding, sometimes with rope insurance, steep and sometimes slippery. However, the view from the summit is phenomenally good.
In front of our feet are the Lechtal Alps, behind us the great Swiss mountains and on the right hand we can see the Ötztal Alps. Below are two glaciers, the Pettneu Ferner and the Flirscher Ferner.

On the way to the High Riffler you can discover a lot and have twice a stopover and accommodation. The trail is always well marked and signposted. Nevertheless, you should not forget that you are always in high alpine terrain!

Sensational panoramic view from the highest peak of the Verwall group.

The high Riffler (3166m) can be reached from the Edmund-Graf-Hütte in a good 2 hours, the paths are not too difficult (red path, T2 level). Since the mountain is very popular and the path leads up over a rubble cart, you have to watch out for falling rocks.
From the high Riffler you have a wonderful view of the Verwall Group and the mountain ranges to the left and right of it. My first 3,000 :)
