Brandjoch South Ridge

We started our hike at 5:30 at Hungerburg. From there we hiked to Höttinger Alm. Right after Hungerburg a small dark cat accompanied us and despite our efforts to make it turn around it followed us almost to Höttinger Alm.

From Höttinger Alm we hiked west to Brandjochboden and from there to Brandjochkreuz (2268 m)


After a short break we continued via Brandjoch South Ridge to Vorderes Brandjochkreuz.

Due to his back problems my father preferred to climb down secured by a rope.

From Vordere Brandjochspitze we descended via Julius Pock Steig (East Ridge, normal way) to Frau Hitt Saddle.

While my parents hiked from Frau Hitt Saddle to Seegrube, Matthias and I continued our tour with a climb of Frau Hitt.

From Frau Hitt we continued via the second section of "Innsbrucker Klettersteig" (Via Ferrata Innsbruck) to Langer Sattel. From there we took the Schmidhubersteig to Seegrube.
