The Klimmspitze is a 2465 m high peak of the Hornbach chain in the Allgäu Alps. The easiest way to climb the easternmost peak of the Hornbach Group is from Elmen. The mountain tour begins in the Klimm district of Elmen, at the new wooden bridge over the Lech. There are several parking spaces at the Klimm Bridge. At the houses a narrow marked path leads into the forest, which becomes quite steep. In constant gradient the path leads through the forest, later through the mountain pines to the Großkar. In front of the Großkar the mountain pines become lighter, the path also becomes a little flatter. The path now continues across the gravelly terrain to the top of the sheep. Near the summit the path then runs along plate-like rocks over the southern ridge to the summit. The ascent to Klimmspitze takes about 4 hours. Sure-footedness, alpine experience and freedom from dizziness are required. On the summit you have a fabulous view of the lower Lechtal and the Hornbach valley. The view of the Hochvogel and the Roßkar peaks on the opposite side of the Hornbach valley is particularly good. The Klimmspitze is also suitable for a ski tour.
