Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from the Alpibahn station to the summit. Walked along roads to Ijes. I think that it would be possible to drive to Ijes because a lot of tourists were there with passenger cars (which would cut 10 km of boring roadwalking. I went to the right and met up with the ridge. It was very steep, but once on the ridge it is an easy walk to Hinter Grauspitz. It would be quicker to avoid Hinter Grauspitz, descent to the South of it, and then go straight for Grauspitz (the main summit). On the way back I climbed up the ridge to Hinter Grauspitz directly, instead of descending into the cirque. This saved me 30 minutes. Class 3, and a section of class 4, with a lot of exposure. From there descended the same route as ascent. As for the road walking, there are many ways to go and they are all about the same distance/time. 21.6 km roundtrip distance.
