Overnight Hiking Trip - Allgäuer Alpen & Köllenspitze (2238m) on 19.Aug.2017

14 posts in this topic

 

The third overnight hike in 2017 takes us to Allgäuer Alpen which are part of Tannheimer Berge in Austria. We take the train from Munich to Reutte and hike up to Otto Mayr Hütte on Saturday. Sunday starts with a difficult ascent up Köllenspitze (2238m). Be prepared for a bit of scrambling near the top of Köllenspitze (aka Kellenspitze). If you own a climbing helmet it might be a good idea to bring it as other hikers in front of you might trigger rockfalls. No need to go all the way to the top though; even below the peak the view is spectacular. This hike requires previous hiking experience and proper hiking boots.

 

Route

 

Saturday 19.Aug.2017

Reutte in Tirol (851m) - Sulztaler Hütte (1428m) - Schallerkapelle (1698m) - Musauer Alm (1290m) - Otto Mayr Hütte  (1530m)

Walking time = ~5h, distance = 11km, elevation gain = 1200hm.

We will have cake at Musauer Alm before we hike the final leg to Otto Mayr Hütte.

 

A sheet sleeper is required to spend the night at Otto Mayr Hütte.

I booked 10x Zimmerlager for us.

 

Sunday 20.Aug.2017

Otto Mayr Hütte (1530m) - Köllenspitze (2238m) - Tannheimer Hütte (1760 m) - Reutte in Tirol (851m)

Walking time = ~7h, distance = 14km, elevation gain = 1300hm.

We'll have an lunch at Tannheimer Hütte (if it's open again by August), and maybe a cake stop in Reutte before we take the train back to Munich.

The weather forecast for Saturday 19/08 is extremely bad so this hike is officially cancelled. :-(

It's no fun to hike in 4mm of rain per hour with high risk of thunderstorms.

Safety first and we will try our luck again next summer.
