1800 2000 2200 2400 2600 m km 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Bergstation Elferbahn Elferhütte

Very worthy and impressive crossing in some parts “dolomite-like” rock-scenery

Characteristic:

Ambitious via ferrata hikers ideally connect the „Elferkofel-via ferrata“ with the “Nordwand-via ferrata” on the Elferturm.

The securities are mainly of brackets and spikes, whereby an adequate security is only given by rope team association. Until Elferkofel summit there are several by-pass possibilities. Surefootedness and basic climbing experience (also for descent) are essential. Partly exposed, but wonderful ridge climbing.

Turn-by-turn directions

Access:

1,5 h; the same as “Nordwand via ferrata” to Elfer hut; towards south to Elferkofel further on to ridge height in south-west direction, last part in territory with rough blocks (short securities, A) to a gorge at the east-side of Elfertürme (Elfer saddle). Shortly after signpost (on left-side diverts a by-pass passage to Zwölfernieder saddle). The securities start at a small material cot (signpost-wall).

Descent:

1,5 h; the most comfortable and beautiful way back leads at the east-side along the “panorama-way” to Elfer hut. For “collectors of summits” the ascent of the nearby “Zwölferspitze” (230 Hm, partly 1+) is worth to hike.

Public transport

From the train station Innsbruck are regularly running busses to Neustift in the Stubai valley.

Getting there

From the olympic city Innsbruck the Stubai valley is accessible in 20 minutes via Brenner motorway, exit Schönberg until Neustift in the Stubai valley.

Is it better to start with "Nordwand-via ferrata" or finish with "Nordwand-via ferrata" ?

Sehr schöne Tour mit herrlichen Panorama-Ausblicken! An heißen sollte man früh starten und viel Wasser mitnehmen, da der Steig kaum Schatten bietet und recht anspruchsvoll ist. Beim gemütlichen Gehen und mit kleinen Pausen sollte man mind. 6 Stunden einrechnen!
