Thanks to Klaus Brandstetter for adding this peak.

High, but easy peak. The usual ascent leads in 2-3 hours to the summit (from Amberger Hutte - in 2 hours from Gries im Sulztal). Descent: South ridge: easy. Alternative ascents: East face (Ice 50 - 60 degrees) North ridge: Difficult, combined ice/snow-rock.
