DescriptionThe Totenkirchl is a 2,190 m high mountain in the Wilder Kaiser range of the Northern Limestone Alps in the state of Tyrol, Austria, east of the town of Kufstein.
The mountain has some of the most famous climbs in the Northern Limestone Alps, with over 50 routes of UIAA grade III. It is particularly known for its chimneys, including the Dülfer Chimney (Dülfer-Kamin) named after Hans Dülfer. The best jumping off point for climbing the Totenkirchl is the Stripsenjochhaus owned by the ÖAV. (Info culled from Wikipedia)
Getting ThereThe best approach is to park in the lot at the Griesner Alm and hike the approximately 1.5 hours/1.5km to the Stripsenjochhaus up in the mountains, where you can spend the night. There are other approaches that are longer, but less steep. See the wikipedia page for options.
There are plenty of sleeping pads in the communal sleeping section, or you can rent a room. In 2017, a bed in the communal area was $22 for 26 and older. Pad and pillow are provided, but you should bring your own sleeping bag or sheet. There is a discount if you're a member of the Austrian-German Alpine Club.
There is no cooking area, but they have a restaurant where you can buy food. Breakfast should be pre-ordered the night before. Cash-only. Enjoy a tasty radler after a hard day of climbing.
