Steep and dominant wall

Everyone who hikes into the Ochsental is impressed by high and steep walls on the left and the right. The steepest and most dominant wall is the northeast face of the Kingspitz, which firstly has been climbed in the year 1938. In 1970, Walter Pause named this route in the book„Im extremen Fels“. Since then, the route is qualified as one of the greatest classic climbing routes in the Alps. Although in the last years better equipped, the route is still strenuous and a tough climbing adventure. The long down walk goes through steep and pathless aerea. Daniel Anker and Michael Piola equipped another route, called Trumpfkönig 6b+. In all of the routes you need additional equipment. Engelhornhütte is the place to spend the night before climbing one of the routes going through the northeast face of the Kingspitz.
