  Hochfeiler from below Pfitscherjoch
by Anjutka

It is not too often possible in the Alps to climb an over 3500 m high peak without any specific glacier equipment (but with perfect mountain equipment anyway, of course). Park the car at the 3rd hairpin turn of the road and follow the signs "Hochfeilerhuette" which is reached from there in 3 hours. It is recommended to stay over night there and to continue the next day up to the top of Hochfeiler on a not too difficult way, one does not even need to touch the rock with the hands. 3 hours from Hochfeilerhütte. Only in perfect and stable weather, of course!!!
