Ascent Trip ReportTook the train from Heilbronn, arrived at 11 pm in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Laced up my boots at the station and walked to the Olympic Stadium. Very dark, but perfect temperature for hiking. The Partnachklamm was unguarded at this time of night, and I walked through it for free. Couldn't see much, but the noise was loud and it was kind of freaky walking through this loud tunnel alone in the dark. I exited the Partnachklamm and continued along the trail, using the trail signs to continue on the Reintal. After about 3 hours (at 2 am) of walking, I was maybe 1-2 km from the Reintalangerhutte and I ducked into the trees and had a rest for a couple hours. I felt like I had made good time because it was very flat. I brought a 100 gm primaloft jacket for this purpose, so I put it on and went to sleep. I woke up before the sun, and started hiking as it began to get light. I passed the Reintalangerhutte before the sun came up, and started on a very steep section. above the hut would probably have been a better place to rest, more flat spots for a tent, in fact somebody had a tent set up up there. I think it's against the park rules, but who cares... I passed the Knorrhutte at 8 am, as most hikers were beginning their hike who had stayed there. They gave me an odd look, wondering where I had come from. I passed the slow ones and was at the glacier cable car station by 9. There were a lot of sheep up here, so be careful about drinking the water from the streams! The last section is the steepest. A bit of scree that is tedious, and then an easy via ferrata to the huge summit complex. I was at the summit by 10:15 but had to wait a half hour to stand with the summit cross because a bunch of tourists (the ones in loafers who were delivered here on the cable car) were having a tough time climbing up and down the ladder to the cross. I say: get on with it!! A terrible end to a tough hike, but I'm glad that I got it done. 25 km total distance.
