Killertomate planned a hike.
September 28, 2021
Ascent to the AlpspitzeFrom the mountain station of the Alpspitzbahn (Osterfelderkopf) you hike at a constant height to the start of the Nordwandsteig (signposted). The Nordwandsteig climbs gently in an easterly direction to the lower end of the striking summit roof of the Alpspitze, alternating tunnels, ladders and short via ferrata sections (difficulty A / B). At the end of the path you come to the grassy Oberkar, turn south and climb a wide rubble basin, gently rising to the east shoulder of the Alpspitze (signposted throughout).In places, the further route is developed as a via ferrata (difficulty A). Now initially steeply on the shoulder, then in an almost constant incline through rocky terrain to the summit cross of the Alpspitze (2628m), which is not at the highest point. At the summit, an outstanding view of Garmisch and the opposite Kramerspitz, Hohen Ziegspitz as well as the Höllental and the Riffelspitzen. In the west, of course, the Jubiläumsgrat to the Zugspitze and in the south the impressive Blassengrat.Descent from the AlpspitzeFrom the highest point of the Alpspitze, a signposted path leads down into the Grieskarscharte with a stimulating scramble, whereby the most difficult places are secured with wire ropes. In the Grieskarscharte you turn right into the Matheisenkar. The further path leads down to the valley floor almost completely secured (via ferrata B / C) and in places very steep and / or exposed. Via ferrata set is also pleasant for the experienced, rockfall helmet is recommended, especially if several mountaineers are on the way! The cleverly laid out path leads through intersections, gullies and ridges into the deep valley floor.Once there, you enter flatter terrain again and after crossing a rubble field you come to a clearly visible path that leads in many switchbacks out of the Matheisenkar and down to the Höllentalangerhütte.
