Description

From the Brennender Palven mountain (Baumgartenköpfl), hike along Wilder-Kaiser-Steig trail 823 as you head past mountain pines and over fields of scree in some cases on your way towards the Ellmauer Tor. You will need to head across a few gullies and exposed sections before coming to the turnoff leading to the Ellmauer Tor rock saddle. At the turnoff, you should take the Jubiläumssteig trail. The trail is highly exposed in certain places, but features wire ropes almost throughout. It snakes across slabs and along a wide range of imposing rock faces before coming to a distinctive natural arch, with slight ascents and descents leading to a notch. This must be crossed with the help of a ladder, along with steps that are secured using wire ropes. Heading through a gorge, you will reach the exit of the Jubiläumssteig trail. It is only a short distance from here to the Gruttenhütte mountain hut.

Jubiläumssteig trail difficulty: A/B
Requirements: a good head for heights and surefootedness
Recommended: via ferrata set, climbing harness and helmet
