Aufstieg zum Kelmer JochPhoto: Hartmut Wimmer, Outdooractive Premium
This tour in the Lechtal Alps of Tyrol takes us to the highest peak of the Liegfeistgruppe. The Knittelkarspitze is a striking rocky mountain that should only be tackled by experienced mountaineers. The ascent from the direction of Kelmen via the Kelmer Jöchl is steep, partly exposed and in some places secured with wire ropes. Surefootedness and a head for heights are absolutely necessary. The trail is well marked throughout and is classified as "black", i.e. difficult. The summit cross offers a fantastic view over the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps, so you should definitely take a longer break here to enjoy the view. The Knittelkarspitze is no longer an insider tip, but it is still far from a crowded summit, so you usually only have to share the peace and solitude of the mountains with a few like-minded people.
