Nice easy route on the north face of Alpspitze. Take the Alpspitz-Bahn. Take the "Nordwand"-Ferrata, after about 15min you see a tunnel ahortly after a roof (protection of rockfall). On the left outer wall you'll see a red mark (KG-Weg). The first belay is at the tunnel entrance. The first bolt shortly around the corner. Follow the bolts throuh a shallow dihedral and proceed after the third bolt to the right to the first belay. 9 pitches, ~3h, first and last pitches are the hardest (~5.7) The route ends at a big ledge covered with stones just right of a heart shaped firn spot (the so called "Herzerl"). Descend to the ferrata on track marks to the right (~15min).

4 out of 5 stars Well protected fun

The route is extremely well protected. Overbolted even. Required rack is 12-14 quickdraws, including 6 extendable. A small quiver of nuts is helpful, as are a couple of link cams. We did it in 6 pitches with a 60m rope. A second rope is not necessary.
