Although the Grimming is "only" 2351m high, it is the highest freestanding mountain in Europe. Not only that but it offers wonderful but strenuous and technically more challenging hikes and of course, amazing views from the summit.
The south eastern ridge of the Grimming is an easy climbing route (maximum difficulty 2+, mainly around 1, 1+ or just hiking). Ropes are not required.
The plan is to drive to Trautenfels at the bottom of the mountain on the Friday afternoon, and hike up to the Grimming hut (ca. 1 hr) and stay the night there, if there are places available. On the Saturday we will set off up towards the summit via the Südost Grat, and descend via the Multereck (very long descent).
If the weather looks bad, we may try the Saturday-Sunday instead if accommodation is available, so flexibility may be necessary.
As this is a strenuous, long, technical hike, with some exposure, I will only take people I know, and who I know can manage this hike without assistance, and at a reasonably brisk pace. Please do not be offended if I don't accept your registration or give priority to more suitable participants! Also I will give priority to suitable people who did not join last year's hike to the Grimming.
Finally, the trip will only take place if the weather is good and stable, and suitable accommodation is found.
