Seldom visited peak in the mayor ridge of the Wetterstein. Proivdes very nice views of the nearby Zugspitze (highest peak of Germany) and the whole ridge connecting the Zug- and Alpsitze (socalled Jubilaeumsgrat). The ascent from South is easy but strenuous because of scree. Requires some alpine experience because their is no marked trail. About 5 hours from Ehrwalder Alm (1500m, hut with accommodations).
