Featured photo of Totenkirchl

A famous peak in the Wilder Kaiser range. Once considered inaccessible, it is today a popular destination for rock climbers. Still today, it is inaccessible for hikers, the easiest route to the summit is a moderate rock climb (UIAA III-). The impressive west face features lots of classic rock climbs of higher difficulty. Hikers may only admire the near perpendicular walls from the terrace of the Stripsenjoch hut.
