Berliner Höhenweg - 1st stage: Gamshütte - Friesenberghaus

Gamshütte - Pitzenalm - Wesendlkarsee - Friesenberghaus
Attention: Very long passage (approx. 14 km), partly narrow paths, often very lonesome even in midsummer. From "graue Platte", "Pitzenalm" and "Kesselalm" there are emergency rope-down devices to Zemmgrund.

From the Gamshütte follow the steep track to "Vordere Grinbergspitze" for approx. 100 m altitude difference to a south-western direction. Now the Berliner Höhenweg is branching off to the left and takes you for approx. 1 km through steep grassy flanks. Attention: In case of wet conditions - slip danger! Cross the Schrahnbach cirque in a wide bend and finally you reach slightly upwards the "Graue Platte" - a part of the Hintere Grinbergspitze - with glorious views to Zemmgrund. Now the trail winds through boulders and mountain pines in a south-western direction to Feldalm (1,885 m; walking time: 2 to 2,5 hours). Next to Feldalm cross the pasture fence and walk straight ahead through mountain pines to Pitzenalm (1,874 m; walking time: approx. 0,5 hours). In northern direction cross the Pitzen stream and continue on the other side of the stream in steep turns to Milchtrager (2,030 m). Attention: Rests of snow even up to the midsummer! The track takes you now with wonderful panoramic views for approx. 2 km up to the meadows above Kesselalm. Now descend for approx. 100 m altitude difference to Kesselalm and cross the Kessel stream. Beautiful resting place with views of the water fall!

First ascent from the stream for approx. 100 m altitude difference and continue to the foothill of the eastern ridge of Riffler. The track leads around the ridge and ascents on the other side through the Riffler furrow steeply upwards. On 2,420 m the terrain gets flatter. The way takes you now over big boulders down to the southern bank of Wesendlekar lake. Continue gently upwards through the Wesendl cirque till you reach the track Breitlahner-Friesenberghaus below Petersköpfl. Walk around the foothill of Petersköpfl and in a wide bend to Friesenberghaus.
