Ascent Trip Report

0500: Started at AlpsitzeBahn Parking lot walking west 1 mile to the town of Hammersbach where we started on the well maintained "Klammweg" trail. Walked in the dark up to the "Hollentaleingangshutte" at the entrance to the Hollental Canyon. Luckily we were there before the gate was manned so we saved 5EUR.

0615: Ascended up through the Hollentalklamm, beautiful and stunning caves drilled through the rock for a hiking trail, to the Hollentalhutte. With the 5EUR we saved stop for a civilized cup of coffee cuz why not at 0715.

0745: Started walking behind and to the left of the Hut towards Knappenhauser. About a mile in took a left following signs to Alpspitze. Gained the ridge at 1030 and made our way over to the Alspitze Feratta to the right after a short walk. You know you walked too far if you enter another tunnel.
