Turn-by-turn directions

TROGKOFEL 2,230 m - Overlap climbing

Point of origin:

Rudnig Alm - via Spießhütte along the Trogtal -

North side of the Trogkofel Shortly before the Rudnigalm, the path leads right towards the Spießhütte (starting altitude 1,621m). Here the Trogtal begins directly below the Trogkofel north face. Here there is a turn-off "Großer Sattel" to the right, but we keep left and walk towards Karnischen Höhenweg 403. From here the path leads steeper uphill, and leads directly from the left side to the north face. After the first short ladder, the path climbs up in the scree to a ramp secured with chains, which leads to the second steep ladder. At the end of the second steep ladder, a narrow cut is made with the help of stepping pins and iron chains (be careful when descending.) This is followed by a short, somewhat exposed traverse, and shortly afterwards a chimney-like crack with chain insurance. The further way to the summit consists mainly of walking terrain with three chain-insured rock steps (beautiful rock landscape). From the exit on the Trogkofel plateau it is only a few minutes to the right to the summit cross. Difficulty level B, absolute freedom from giddiness required rewarding summit plateau, insured with chains and ladders. Some passages rockfall endangered and very slippery when wet. Ascent: about 3 hours

Descent: same route back, or via the via ferrata "Ferrata Crete Rosse".
