This giant, surrounded by glaciers, with its highest peak situated on the Alpi Aurine, east of Brennero in Alto Adige, extends over 130 kilometres along the border. Nonetheless any hiker with experience of high altitudes can climb this mountain.

Directions


Turn right at Vipiteno – along the east side of the valley to the third hairpin bend to Passo di Vizze – Pfitscher Joch (1,718 m, small car park, trail mark). From there continue on route 1 to the mountain huts along the slopes to reach the Rifugio Hochfeilerhütte – Gran Pilastro (2,710 m, 3 hours). The ascent on the steep ridge is facilitated by the use of fixed ropes to reach a snowfield and eventually the final ridge. The increasingly steeper climb among boulders and hard snow will eventually lead to the peak (3,510 m, 2:30 hours from the refuge). Return is via the same route (4 hours approx.)
