The Maukspitze and Ackerlspitze are the easternmost stand-alone summits in the Kaisergebirge mountain range and are ideal for a circular tour with a wonderful panoramic view. This very challenging tour demands surefootedness and it is absolutely essential for walkers to have a good head for heights. The tour features climbing passages of difficulty level I to II with few secured sections. Climbing is recommended only when the rock is dry.

A demanding mountain tour up to the highest summit in the Wilder Kaiser region. Although the ascent via the Gamsängsteig trail does feature a number of easy climbing sections, it is largely well secured with steel rope and pins. Shortly before you reach the Babenstuber Hütte mountain hut (emergency bivouac), you have two options: head across a short vertical ladder or take the highly exposed route along the steel ropes. Less experienced climbers should use via ferrata equipment.

At 2,111 metres above sea level, the Scheffauer is the last high peak before the mountain range heads west via the Zettenkaiser and Zettenkaiserkopf mountains. As one of the highest summits of the Wilder Kaiser massif, it towers imposingly above the village of Scheffau and provides a spectacular view over the Inntal valley, the Kitzbühel Alps and as far as Bavaria.
