|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||9718 ft / 2962 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom SW, upper car park just below Oberstelleralm, €4, coins. Walked road then mapped path, steep zigzags, gentler section in hanging valley then steeply up to col, turn R, varied ridge with arete, boulderfield and easy trail. Exposed on a few spots; the crux for me was steep arete a short way above col, especially on descent. Highpoint is outcrop 4m N of pseudo cross; adjacent trig block still has the theodolite fixing plate in place. Fine views enhanced by lowering sun; Großglockner in view. Surprised to see 3 lads ascending; they seemed to turn L at col; presumably camping or bivvying. 1h45 up, 3h20 round trip, down before dusk; 5pm start after 2h40 drive round from Kreuzjoch trailhead and much needed Lidl session.
