 Großer Krottenkopf
The Großer Krottenkopf at 2656 m is the highest peak of the Allgäu Alps. The ascent from the Lechtal can take place from Holzgau or Bach or Elbigenalp. Another possibility for ascent is the north ridge, which is however a climbing route and very difficult to master. The route from Holzgau starts at the church in Holzgau. Continue through the Höhenbach valley, past the Simms waterfall to the front Roßgumpenalm. At the front of the Roßgumpenalm the path continues northwards and soon ends in a narrow path. After another half hour you reach the upper Roßgumpenalm. At about 2140 m and another hour later you reach the turnoff to the Krottenkopfscharte. From here it is not too far to the Krottenkopfscharte (2350 m). The ascent from the Krottenkopfscharte to the summit absolutely requires surefootedness, alpine experience and freedom from vertigo. The total walking time to the summit is about 4 to 5 hours. This is rewarded with a fabulous view of the Allgäu Alps and the Allgäu. The descent can take the same route or via the Hermann-von-Barth-Hut on Elbigenalp. Another possibility is the descent via Jöchelspitze to Bach or Holzgau.
