Very serious alpine undertaking over a razor-sharp ridge with steep grass up to 70 ° and rock difficulties up to the 6th degree (UIAA), only a few pitons available (one of Walter Pause´s routes in extreme rock)

The notorious Rädlergrat on the Himmelhorn in the rear Oytal near Oberstdorf is one of the most beautiful and challenging grass climbing in the Allgäu. Grass flanks of up to 70 ° steepness have to be climbed without a rope (with crampons and grass axe) and rock difficulties up to the 6th degree (UIAA) have to be overcome on the summit wall. There are some old pitons in the rock part. You are over 850 meters in altitude in extremely steep and absolutely risky terrain. Withdrawal is hardly or not at all possible. With the exception of a few pitons, you have to secure by yourself in many places. Therefore you have to be absolutely sure of your acting on the Rädlergrat. However, those who can cope with the difficulties will be rewarded with an extreme, scenic and extremely attractive alpine experience. The descent is via the easy normal route of the Schneck pre-summit over the Käser-Alpe back to the bicycle depot. According to the wall book, the Rädlergrat is climbed about four times a

Rein optisch und vom alpinistischen Gesamtanspruch her wahrscheinlich die "King Line" im Allgäu! Bei sicheren Lawinenverhältnissen (1er!), einem freigeblasenen Grat und trockenen Fels-Seillängen, ist eine Winterbegehung meiner Meinung nach nicht viel anspruchsvoller, als in den warmen Monaten. Zumal die im Winter obligatorische Pickel&Steigeisen-Kombi hier auch im Sommer kein Luxus ist! Egal ob Sommer oder Winter: Aspiranten sollten auf jeden Fall ausreichend Erfahrung im Steilgras gesammelt haben, ehe die Tour in die engere Auswahl rückt. Da nur ein Standplatz mit Bohrhaken (von einer Gedenktafel) ausgestattet ist und auch einige Querungen an der Gratschneide zu absolvieren sind, sollte hier auch der Nachsteiger wissen, was er tut!
