Ascent Trip Report

I parked my car at 46.6127, 13.28103. I took the Millennium Express cable car to the top station. The one-way ticket cost a surprisingly low 13 euros. Because of the morning rain, I chose the afternoon hours, and I knew that I would not catch the last lift. 

From the lift to the trail head, the biggest difficulty is finding a path between people and multiple trails. At 46.6127, 13.28103, a well marked trail through a boulder field. Maybe a few hundred meters. Descending about 100 vertical meters, the trail goes up to the ridge via forest and pastures at 46.55832, 13.24125. At 46.55763, 13.23255 starts a flat and easy ridge walk. At 46.56488, 13.22331 nice flat trail at the bottom of Trogkofel S wall. At 46.56624, 13.20873 starts an unprotected climb. A few places are quite exposed and need care. Stright forward walk on the summit plato. Impressive views and impressive "stone crevasses". The summit is marked with a cross. There is also an easily reachable SW summit. There are absolutely excellent views on the top and most of the trail. I descended the same way, but the lift was already non-working, so I went an extra 15km on the gravel road to the parking. I enjoyed this hike so much. A very good one. 

2h20 up, 5h40 roundtrip.
