Dramatically, the Gehrenspitze rises at the entrance to Gaistal. Although the summit of the Leutaschtal seems almost invincible, a relatively easy climb leads over the west ridge to the summit - and the view up here is simply unique. On our route you climb from the edge of the tranquil village of Ahrn through the Puittal up to the summit.The paths on this hike are not difficult overall, but due to the many vertical meters in the ascent and descent you should have good condition. In particular, if you plan to go on the tour in one day, it will be worth taking several breaks to reduce your power. Alternatively, you can spend two days and spend the night in the cozy Wetterstein hut.The starting point is the town of Ahrn in the Leutasch Valley, which can be reached both by car and by bus. From here it goes straight into quiet mountain forests. After you have crossed the Puitbach, the trail snakes uphill in some serpentines into the Puittal. Soon you have left the forest behind and in front of you opens a picturesque alpine scenery.The trail continues to rise until you finally reach a crossroads at the Scharnitzjoch. Here you turn left and follow the narrow but easy climb below the impressive west flank of the Gehrenspitze to the summit cross. At the top you take a break with the best views, before going the same way back to the intersection.Again turn left and descend slowly to the Wetterstein hut. As you follow the path down to the valley, the barren meadows soon become lush mountain pastures. From the Wetterstein hut, the route snakes its way through tranquil mountain forests and back to the starting point of your summit tour.
