Climb to the Grimming, the "Mons Styriacus altissimus"- 2351m

Open
From the south as well as the north side, the Grimming appears immense, a striking rock outcrop of limestone, the eastern branch of the Dachstein group.
Paula Grogger, the well-known regional writer from Öblarn, creates a memorial to the Grimming in her book “Das Grimmingtor”.  The Grimming, which towers directly over the Enns valley, was long considered Styria’s highest mountain.  The view from the peak is spectacular.  From Trautenfels caste, we hike initially for one hour through meadows and forest to the Grimming Hütte (elev. 996 m).  There, the steep climb (no. 681) through the Au towards the cliffs begins. The hike leads through the cirque and over several rocky uplifts to a trail fork – to the left, the trail leads via the south-east ridge directly to the summit (only markings without numbers).  We recommend tying off and/or a using a guide.  To the right, marked path no. 681 leads to an alpine hollow and then up a rocky trail to the Multereck (elev. 2,176 m), the easternmost peak of the Grimming.  Hiking up and down through hollows with splendid views, we make our way high above the Enns Valley to the top of the Grimming.  Just below the peak is a bothy.  For the descent, which takes us the same way, extreme caution is necessary, since there have already been many accidents here.  There is also a descent to Klachau and the Klum ski jump in Bad Mitterdorf, which offers less of an elevation difference.  Make arrangements for pick-up service.
