Although it is often climbed, the rope-secured final summit section should not be underestimated. Another option is the more demanding "via ferrata" on the north face.

Destination

Hundskopf

Turn-by-turn directions

Leave the St Martin car-park (890m) and follow initially the asphalted toll road. After a short distance leave this and follow the signposted path towards the Hinterhornalm (1,522m). At the Hinterhornalm - just to the north of the favoured launching pad for hang-gliders - the path continues up the mountain. It then crosses an extensive field of mountain pines and a small scree slope, which gradually becomes bouldered terrain. After just a few metres of elevation gain, you will reach a small saddle with a magnificent view over the Karwendel range and the rest of the tour.

 The marked path divides a little further on. Keep left for the normal route. After crossing another field of mountain pines, the path continues uphill over rope-secured boulders. The hardest section is a narrow ridge, demanding surefootedness, before you reach the summit of the Hundskopf at 2,243m.

Return to the valley by the same route.
