Ascent Trip Report

#47 in Austria by prominence
#148 in Alpine Peaks by prominence
more than 1000 meters of prominence (1070m)

so, at least three reasons to climb it. I took southwest trail on the way up. Which was quite easy go. However it's quite steep and can be tricky during or after the rain. Excellent views from the top. South side of the peak looks like ~600 meters rocky wall. Very rewarding.
I decided to go back via northeast trail. Which is a bit longer however there are few more peaks on the way. Hundred or so meters is a kind of grade 2 climb. Chains are secured in all places where needed. Trail from the map (just before Jager Wilder peak) does not exist anymore or it is very well hidden, so i made extra few kilometers. In total it become ~18 km hike with ~1500 meters of altitude gain/loss.
