It's worth getting up early. We met about 10 people on the ascent from the Eibsee via the stopselzieger to the summit. The KS was in poor condition due to winter damage. Thanks to dry weather, it can be done without any major risk. Then culture shock at the top ;-) Not to imagine what has to be going on here on a corona-free weekend.

Poor condition of the securing on the climbing wall is an understatement! We were there on 07.31.20. Half of the rope anchors are torn out. You hang over a sufficient number of distances without securing in an almost vertical position and are only secured by your own hands from a long but last free flight. Rockfall was incl.It took us 8.5 hours with a break. For beginners and people without a helmet, the tour should be taboo!
