Description


You can bypass the Klamml using the following route (which does not feature any exposed sections):

You will come to path 824 from the Bergsteigergrab, turning onto path 812a above the Gaudeamushütte mountain hut as you head south towards the Wochenbrunner Alm via Gamswegl. Follow this trail through the forest, then through a field of scree. Back in the forest, you then head to the intersection with path 825. You should then follow this path north to the Gruttenhütte mountain hut. This path largely leads through a thin forest up to the tree line. Making your way across rocky terrain, you will first come to the Gruttenkopf peak and then the Gruttenhütte (1,620 m), the highest mountain hut in the Wilder Kaiser region.
