Description

Ascent:
From Tannbichl car park, walk along the forest road towards Obere Regalm. Then head up through Alpine meadows to the Ackerlhütte mountain hut (1,455 m) and continue uphill through scented mountain pines until you come to the nearby foot of the rock face. This marks the start of the easy climbing with difficulty level 1 and you will soon come to the Niedersessel (small slope cirque, snowfield until late summer). The key part of the climb is a 20 metre rock face that is almost vertical and is sparsely but conveniently secured with grips and a few steps. After two challenging vertical sections, two exposed crossings featuring a number of bends and some sections of easy climbing higher above the airy ridge, you will come to the summit of the Ackerlspitze. After taking a break at the summit, you should first head back along the saddle between the Ackerlspitze and the Maukspitze. Then continue along the largely easy ridge (featuring a short exposed section) to the Maukspitze (around 45 minutes from the Ackerlspitze).

Descent:
From the summit, you should make your descent along the steep, rugged path that leads to the Niedersessel cirque. Head back across the steep upward section and return via the same trail into the valley.

Variant:
departing from the Ackerlhütte mountain hut to the Schleier Waterfall and returning to the starting point via the Graspoint-Niederalm.
