Elferspitze 2505 m (och Zwölferspitze 2562 m)


In this case the walk begins at the cableway station on 1790 m altitude. (larger picture)


First the path winds up to Elferhütte, reached after some 20 minutes. In the background Stubai valley. (larger picture)


After a late spring in Austria the spring flowers are now in full bloom on the mountain. (larger picture)


The landscape gets more dramatic the higher you get.In the background you can see Ilmspitze. (larger picture)


A look into the Stubai valley. (larger picture)


The trail to the top. Just some 100 m left to go. (larger picture)


The last meters are secured with a steel wire, which is needed. But with the help of the wire it´s no bigger problems to get up there. (larger picture)


After the top I continue towards the pass Zwölfernieder, at 2335 m altitude. In the background you can see Habicht, 3277 m. (larger picture)


The wiew towards Pinnistal is breathtaking and of course impossible to fully reproduce on photo. The word that came to me standing there was: unreal. (larger picture)


Almost at Zwölfernieder. Behind the pass rises the peak Zwölferspitze, that I am now going for. (larger picture)
The walking gradually changes into pure climbing with hands and feat. A vertical slope to the left gets complemented with another one to the right. Some 10 altitude meters from the top I get enough. The last meters are very steep so I turn around here. (larger picture)
