Alpine pleasure climbing in mostly solid rock in the beautiful surroundings of the Allgäu Alps

The Southern Ridge on the Southern Höllhorn offers eight pitches with a VI- (IV A0) point in the third pitch, which can also be bypassed on the left in easier climbing (III). Then mostly between III and IV. Due to the rather manageable length of the climb and the long approach, the route is not particularly suitable for the lazy plaisir climber. The combination of biking, hiking and climbing has its charm, however, and you are usually alone on the ridge. In addition, the impressions on the long ascent through the Oytal (by bike), the Käser-Alpe basin and the Wildenfeld are simply wonderful. With a constant view of the Allgäu grass classics such as Höfats and Schneck and the rocky flanks of Großer and Kleiner Wilder. The more difficult areas are well secured with bolt and adhesive hooks, the easier pitches are also sufficient, but with larger bolt spacing.

Wie in der Beschreibung erwähnt eher ein "ganzheitliches Alpinerlebnis" für den kletternden (und radelnden!) Bergsteiger. Auch wenn die Kante im Laufe der Jahrzehnte die ein oder andere Sanierung erfahren hat (siehe Bilder), handelt es sich trotz der überschaubaren technischen Kletterschwierigkeiten keinesfalls um eine anfängertaugliche Plaisir-Tour! Die Felsqualität variiert von Seillänge zu Seillänge und ist ein gutes Beispiel, dass sich Bruch und Speck in ein und derselben Tour nicht zwangsläufig ausschließen müssen. Die landschaftlichen Eindrücke und Kontraste sind in diesem hintersten Winkel des Allgäus jedoch wirklich genial!

Extrem luftiger, aber nur zwei Züge langer "Quergang" an der Hangelschuppe

Für den niedrigen Schwierigkeitsgrad ist die Südkante erstaunlich steil
