Eagle Walk Stage 22: Memminger Hütte - Ansbacher Hütte

Gullies resemble large ditches, small valleys or narrow chasms, incised into the rock by the cascading waters of thundering creeks and brooks. On this walk, you’ll encounter lots of them, along with notches, crests, ridges, steep flanks and scree slopes that will keep your pace in check. The rewards are great--outstanding views, clean air, and relatively few people to share the trail with--but be prepared to work for every view you get. Make your way down into Parseiertal Valley on steep and exposed tussock slopes, before climbing up to Langkar Cirque and Grießlscharte Notch. Beyond Winterjöchl Col, the trail passes behind Stierkopf Mountain, and resumes its climb up Kopfscharte Notch across rugged terrain. From the notch, head south towards Ansbacher Hut on wide open tussock slopes, drinking fine views and savouring precious Alpine moments on your way.


​trail description: Make your way down from Memminger Hut on a narrow, loamy and in wet conditions slippery singletrack trail, which directly and steeply descends across tussock slopes and heads towards Parseiertal Valley. Thereafter, the path traverses tussock slopes several times across gorges and then further descends southwards into Parseiertal Valley ; the lower section is assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. The first section mostly runs across sloping terrain. On the other side of the valley, a perfectly defined singletrack trail begins a gradual ascent through a grove before ascending more steeply across meadows. Thereafter, you get to Langkar Cirque. On the right side of the cirque (in late summer next to the snowfield), a well-defined singletrack trail (with hardly any rubble) gradually ascends. Later, the trail steepens and bears left. Finally, climb up across a kind of chimney with fixed cables up to Grießlscharte Notch. This section running on earthy soil is vigorously steep and can be slippery in wet conditions. A short descent is followed by a short and steep counter-ascent up and over to Winterjoch Saddle. Just below Winterjoch Saddle, Augsburger High Trail branches off. The Eagle Walk, however, descends for a short distance over scree slopes from Winterjoch Saddle. It passes behind Stierkopf Mountain, and resumes its climb up to Kopfscharte Notch across rugged terrain. From the notch, the path traverses tussock slopes and finally heads southward to Ansbacher Hut with easy ups and downs. At an elevation of 2,376 metres, Ansbacher Hut is a wonderful lookout situated on the southeast flank of Samspitze Spire.
