Update, May 26th: a hiking buddies group did it yesterday.
There are places where the snow is melting, very slippery parts, where the path cannot be found.
Check Jack's Facebook post on May 25th, 11 P.M.
Here some photos of them:
The Halserspitze (1862m) is a summit with great views in the Bavarian Alps near the Tegernsee and it is one of the so-called Blaubergen. There are some steep places with steel rope passages and then a long summit plateau (with various intermediate peaks).
- good hiking/trekking shoes + poles (or whatever equipment you know you or your knees need)
- enough water and snacks (no open hut along the way!)
- sun screen/glasses/hat
- your charged phone to be reached before and during the hike. the gpx track on it.
- we'll be borderline, so some ID might be needed;
P.S.: especially given the conditions, consider signing up for a valid DAV (Bergwacht) insurance.
Path/Terrain: Paths are not always visible. Exposed sections can be safeguarded with ropes or chains. The hands might be needed for balance. Can have exposed sections with danger of falling, scree slopes, pathless craggy ground.
Requirements: sure footedness, good trekking shoes. Average orientation skills. Basic alpine experience required.

The map you see here is for a 16.8 km route. If the majority feels fit and still alive, we can extend the route by 1.6 km, thus getting to 18 km..
