Treffauer & Tuxeck summit tour

Treffauer & Tuxeck summit tour

Description

Ascent:
From the Wegscheid hiking starting point, follow trail 826 always in the direction of Treffauer and Tuxeck. Passing the Wegscheid alpine pastures and the Wilden-Kaiser-Steig trail, the trail leads through cool forest and across alpine meadows to the waterfall. Continue on trail 826 becoming steeper and steeper until you reach the Schneekar cirque. At the beginning of the cirque, the trail branches off to the right onto the Treffauer. Climb over rock steps and two short rope belays to the summit of the Treffauer (2,304 m). During the ascent there are wonderful views of the Hintersteiner See Lake.
Descent as ascent or you follow the red markings southwest down to the saddle at the foot of the Tuxeck mountain. Over a vertical wall you climb to the summit (partly step bars - but not rope-secured!).

Descent:
Back at the saddle, descend via the "southwest ridge". Through a gorge and varied rock and scree terrain with easy climbing sections, you will reach a rocky passage under a clamping stone. Here, descend on a fixed rope and step stirrups and immediately afterwards follow the path to the LEFT! (east!).
Continue up and down and over a steep mountain pine alley down into the large gravel cirque. After a few switchbacks, keep to the right and follow the red markings down through the mountain pines and sparse forest until you reach the Wilden-Kaiser-Steig trail again. Follow this downhill always in the direction Jägerwirt. 

Prerequisite: No fear of heights and surefootedness as well as alpine experience & very good physical condition are absolutely necessary! HELM (danger of falling rocks)
