For the ascent from the peat house, safe sure-footedness is mandatory, as this runs over a rocky path. It can also become slippery when wet.
There are also a lot of bikers on the way down who are coming quickly.
The wolf waiting is a very rewarding view summit. Especially from the top stone block you have a great panoramic view of the mountains of the Harz. The path is more difficult in snow and wet, but requires sure-footedness from peat house.
