Zimba

Zimba is the most famous climbing mountain in Vorarlberg. There are 3 ridges west = normal route, the most difficult east burr and the north east ridge. The tour can be started from the Heinrich Hueter-Hut oder the Sarotla-Hut and takes about 8 hours to be back from the top. I climbed this peak more than 10 times and I like it very much. The routes are written down in detail in the Alpenvereinsführer Raetikon ISBN 3-7633-1236-6.
