 Rothornspitze
The Rothornspitze is a peak in the Hornbach chain in the Allgäu Alps. The 2393 m high summit lies between the Strahlkopf and the Jöchelspitze. The summit takes its name from the clearly visible red slate below the summit. The summit offers a fabulous view of the Lechtal and the surrounding mountains. Below the summit runs the Lechtaler Panoramaweg from Jöchelspitze to Bernhardseck. The easiest ascent to the top of the Rothornspitze is from Bach or from the top station of the Lechtaler Bergbahnen (summer operation) From the top station of the Jöchelspitzbahn you follow the botanical nature trail to the Bergheu-Museum. At the Bergheumuseum the path leads below Jöchelspitze around the summit of Jöchelspitze. The ascent continues without a path over the southern ridge, which starts at the Rothornjoch. Partially also path traces are visible. Another ascent also leads from the Gumpensattel over the north ridge to the summit of the Rothornspitze. The Gumpensattel is located at 2271 m between the blasting head and the Rothornspitze. Several thousand year old quarrying sites of flint were found below the Rothornspitze in summer 2011. The Rothornspitze is usually climbed in combination with the Jöchelspitze or the blasting head. The ascent from the Jöchelspitzbahn valley station takes about 3 to 3.5 hours. The ascent should only be made in dry weather, as the steep grass flanks can become particularly dangerous when wet. Stepping safety, alpine experience and freedom from vertigo are required for an ascent.
