DescriptionThis massive alpine peak could almost be considered a crag with the multitude of routes that are available here. Routes can be about 1000 ft. tall here, and multi-pitch experience and two ropes are suggested. The peak offers great hiking as well as a very popular klettersteig (via-ferrata). Information about that, as well as some great pictures of the mountain, can be found here: http://www.jbeeres.de/hochth/steig_34.htm
Getting ThereFrom Berchtesgaden, head north-east on the 305 to Marktschellenberg (there's a sign for the 305 in the big round-about in Berchtesgaden). You'll see a sign telling you when you're in Marktschellenberg, and shortly thereafter you'll see a bridge, and on the left immediately before the bridge is a road with a sign pointing toward Ettenberg. Take this left and continue to follow the signs to Ettenberg. After a little while of driving down this road you should see a very large parking lot that usually fills up around 7:30am, so get there early. The GPS Location points to this parking lot.
From there, hike up the trail towards Scheibenkaser. The sign says it's a 2.5hr hike, but it should only take you about 1hr 15min to get up to the Scheibenkaser, which is a small shelter for hikers and climbers should there be a storm (I think).
