Climb to the Kopftörlgrat on the Ellmauer Halt

An enjoyable classic climb in the Kaiser massif

On 25th of June 1900 Georg Leuchs, a medical student from Munich, set out on his own from the Kopftörl over the rugged Ostgrat (east ridge) on to the Ellmauer Halt - at 2,344 metres the highest peak in the Wilder Kaiser. This route opened by Leuchs is deservedly rated as one of the most pleasureable climbs in the northern limestone alps. Sure-footedness and a head for heights are a prerequisite for undertaking the route from the Kopftörlgrat on to the Ellmauer Halt. Climbing equipment is highly recommended.

Climbing route: Kopftörlgrat - Ellmauer Halt 2.344 m

Starting point: Wochenbrunneralm car park, 1085m - Support point: Gruttenhütte, 1620m – with superb view. Open from June – mid October. Tel 0043/5358/2242. Map/Guide: AV-map 8Kaisergebirge 1:250 000; Markus Stadler, Climbing guide Wilder Kaiser (level 3 – 6)(Panico Alpinverlag)
Hike up to hut: From the Wochenbrunneralm (signposted "Grüttenhütte") on a well-trodden, sparsely forested path in a northwesterley direction. Then zig-zagging over the Gruttenplateau, overhung with mountain pines and crossing to the hut to the west.
Hike to the summit: Leaving the Gruttenhütte in a northerly direction on a path marked with red (signposted "Kopftörl) through the eastern part of the Kares "Hochgrubach" and steeply up to a gap in the jagged ridge of the "Köpfeln". Turn left here with the the help of man-made steps, spikes and secured wire cables to reach the Kopftörl.
Descent: From the summit on the marked Gamsängersteig to the Gruttenhütte.
Important: Only start out in good weather. The only place to abort is from the ridge by abseiling down to the South before the third tower and from the Leuchsturm.
