The Wolfebnerspitze is a 2,432 m high peak in the Allgäuer Alps. It is the local mountain of the Hermann-von-Barth-Hütte and a well-known Eldorado for climbers. On about 40 climbing routes beginners and advanced climbers find their fun. The individual routes are between the 3rd and 9th degree of difficulty. The protection in the multi-pitch routes is very good for alpine climbing routes. For sport climbers there are also numerous single pitches. Of course the Wolfebnerspitze is not only reserved for climbers. The normal route to the Wolfebnerspitze starts at the Hermann-von-Barth-Hütte and leads first directly to the climbing routes. Below the towering rock faces, the path continues on the right side along the south-east wall uphill until you reach the rock structure of the Wolfebnerspitze. From here the further ascent becomes more challenging. Following the markings, one reaches directly the eastern flank, where one quickly comes across climbing sections in the II degree. The key points are two exposed slat conveyors that have to be crossed. Individual bolts are set. Afterwards, the path leads over rock and loose gravel terrain steeper upwards towards the summit. Just below the summit there is a chimney to climb through. Once you reach the summit, you have a panoramic view of the neighboring peaks of the Allgäu Alps and the main ridge of the Lechtal. Furthermore there is a great view down to the Hermann-von-Barth-Hut. The descent follows the same path as the ascent. From the Hermann-von-Barth-Hut you can expect a walking time of about 1 hour for the ascent. Absolute surefootedness, a head for heights and alpine experience are required. Although the Wolfebnerspitze is frequently visited by climbers, the ascent/descent via the normal route should not be underestimated. The normal route is rated with a difficulty of II+/III-.
