It is a dominant mountain with magnificent views to all sides (Starnberger See via Ammersee, Walchensee and Sylvenstein to the Grossglockner, Großvenediger, the entire Karwendel group and, on the ascent and descent, the Wettersteingebirge including Zugspitze).

Soon the summit is visible and you can enjoy beautiful views from the peak.

Descent: To the south of the summit you can see markings, some safety ropes at the beginning, but not difficult or dangerous leading to Tölzer hut. Secret place: Sunbeds directly below the Tölzer hut ;-)

Optional peak: Those who are not yet tired should definitely tackle the Delpsjoch directly south of the Tölzer hut additionally, also here super view and actually never other persons at the small summit cross. Just follow the path visible from the hut (+100m ascent & descent).
