Challenging mountain tour that takes us off the beaten track to a lonely peak between the Allgäu main ridge and the Lechtal Alps.

The Wilde Kasten is a much less frequently visited peak than the neighbouring Ellbogner Spitze. Because there is no marked path leading to the former. Only occasionally do we come across faint path tracks that guide us through sometimes steep meadow slopes. Otherwise we have to rely on our own sense of direction. Technically it is not very difficult so far, only at the rocky summit it becomes more demanding. Easy climbing is the order of the day. But at the summit, a magnificent panoramic view of the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps awaits us.

Eine wunderbare Tour, insbesondere im Spätherbst. So stellt man sich Bergsteigen vor!

Sehr sehr schöne Tour, für mich sehr anstrengender Anstieg. Wunderschöne einsame Hochebene. Ab den Häuschen bin ich retour den anderen Weg gegangen, das war auch sehr schön, etwas lichterner vielleicht. Merci!

Super Tour, die einiges bietet, was das Bergsteigerherz begehrt: Wegloses Gehen im mehr oder weniger steilen Gras, leichte Kletterei in tollem Fels, Einsamkeit!
