Roßköpfe 2399 m
Wetterkreuzkogel 2591 m
Große Windegg 2650 m

If you use the Acherkogelbahn from Ötz to Hochötz there are good opportunities to simple (but also demanding) hiking. (larger picture)

Just close by rises the Acherkogel , the most northern 3000-meter in Austria. (larger picture)

The path up to Roßköpfe is very easy. But Robert and me finds another way. (larger picture)

It is a little steeper, but a lot more fun. (larger picture)

The top of Roßköpfe is beautiful, but we are aiming higher and soon continue. (larger picture)

Our path continues towards Wetterkreuzkogel, just some additional 200 altitude meters. (larger picture)

Even here the path is quite simple, therefore attracting a lot of tourists. (larger picture)

The welcoming comittee on Wetterkreuzskogel. This guy was very curious on what I had in my backpack. Eventually he got a bisquit. (larger picture)

The top of Wetterkreuzkogel, 2591m. Plenty of tourists, as I mentioned earlier. (larger picture)

A bit to the right of the middle is Sulzkogel, 3016m, which I climbed two years ago. (större bild)

But we are continuing in the direction of Acherkogel, over Große Windegg and Mittertaler Scharte. This path is black = almost no tourists. (larger picture)

A view down into The Ötztal. (larger picture)

The passage of Große Windegg is made easier by metal chains, making it quite smooth. (larger picture)

Continuing to Mittertaler Scharte. After that there is a relatively steep path down, but without wires. (larger picture)

Back into the green on lower altitude, on the way back to the lift station. In the valley you can see Ötz. (larger picture)
