Hill features

Highest peak in the Ötztal region. Nice isolated peak. Can get crazy at weekends and in gaps between poor weather as it is a very popular peak. Most often climbed from the Bresslauer Huette via the Mittkarjoche then across the glacier to the west ridge to finish up the prominent summit pyramid.

A good finish is to traverse the (corniced) ridge to the south summit and to loop around to the glacier once more. The Mittkarjoch now has a new Klettersteig to its left to avoid the deteriorating gully and bad stonefall. If you do climb the gully be there first or very fast. Descend via klettersteig in any case as the gully is lethal in the afternoon.
